The Walking Dead Announces TV Movie Spin-Offs

Apparently, Lincoln - who left the show to spend more time with his family in England - was ready to have his character killed off in season 8, but ultimately stayed on for the movies because of the overwhelming fan support. But despite the series finale airing tonight, this isn't the end for everyone's favourite zombie slaying ex-cop.

Beloved father, fearless leader and unparalleled walker slayer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is departing "The Walking Dead" for good this weekend, but that doesn't mean his memory won't live on. Gimple is now writing the first of the three untitled movies, with production set to begin in 2019.

"We're going to continue telling Rick Grimes' story in a series of AMC original films".

"This is the end of Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead, but this is not the end of Rick Grimes' story", Gimple said.

Reaction to the announcement has been mixed.

"There were many iterations [of Rick's exit]", Andrew told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Maybe it's the start of a bigger story", he concluded, teasing his future as the character. I want to know the meta of it all.

Gimple's plans for expanding the Walking Dead universe don't seem to be limited just to full-length films, either.

"I've always been interested in what's going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world".

"He needed to keep going for the family that is still there, and so to have that kind of restlessness of like, 'I still haven't found them".

Once the scene came to an end and cut was called on him for the last time, Lincoln then shared a special moment with his cast and crew-one you're not going to see leaked videos of anywhere online. With Negan's life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him.

So, where will we meet up with Rick?

Gimple was recently promoted to oversee the new expansion of the series. We have a very clear idea of where Maggie is in the universe and what she's doing and have some stuff brewing in our minds in terms of what the next story would be that we'd tell, so hopefully that all works out.

Andrew Lincoln's final episode of The Walking Dead airs Sunday, November 4 at 9pm on AMC.
