Andrew Lincoln‘s iconic character, Rick Grimes, officially departed “The Walking Dead” on Sunday, but it’s not over.
AMC has announced they have three big-budget TV films in the works based on their hit series, and Andrew will reprise his role as the lead in each film.
“The Walking Dead” chief content officer Scott M. Gimple told The Hollywood Reporter:
The story of Rick will go on in films.
Right now, we’re working on three but there’s flexibility in that. … Over the next several years, we’re going to be doing specials, new series are quite a possibility, high-quality digital content and then some content that defies description at the moment.
We’re going to dig into the past and see old characters. We’re going to introduce new characters and new situations.
Production is set to begin on these film projects in 2019.
I will keep you updated as more info becomes available.
