Rick Grimes may be gone Walking Dead for now, but … not really! Andrew LincolnIt's the last episode on Sunday night, but Rick survived. In the last moments of the episode, Rick was rescued by Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and taken to safety in the helicopter. Meanwhile his whole family believes he is dead.
However, fans will learn how Rick's future looks – he will play in three films that will be on AMC.
"We have a lot on the horizon – we're starting with a new epic performance of one of the greatest leading actors in television history and one of the best people I've ever met", writer and AMC CCO Scott Gimple said in a statement released on Sunday evening. "These films will be a great development of what we do at the show, with the scale and scale of our functions." We start with the first part of the ongoing story of Rik Grimes and there is much more on the way, representing still invisible worlds Walking Dead and the faces of the past show as well as the new characters we hope will become popular TWD veterans and emerging voices. We want to break new ground with different, different stories, the whole part of the same world that captured our imagination for nearly ten years. "
Lincoln, 45, decides to leave the show to concentrate on his family and have been planning films with Gimple for years, he said. Hollywood reporter.
"Scott and I spoke in Season 4 – and we share a similar domestic situation in that we both have young families and portray the rough form of the next two, three and four years of our lives." We drew something out of the air that sounded quite reasonable: they did in the 8th season, which was in line with my personal reasons – which is, in my opinion, the children are less senior, "he said. "Still, I was part of my thought," I do not think I ended up with the guy. "I love this character, I love the world we live in. So why do not we try to potentially continue this story in another way and perhaps complete the story so that motherhood can continue?"
He added: "There was a lot of repetition of the story, and last year it was quite late [came together] because it was the dream of a pipeline. I said, "Would not it be nice to do it?" It was never done with a cable television channel and I did not think there was much going on. Quite surprisingly at the end of last year they said, "Let's go for it." This has grown from an ecological point of view since last year. There was a version there [of the episode] that Rick did not do it. Fortunately, it was like that! "
During Talk to the dead, Lincoln added that he was looking forward to another.
"It's not the beginning of the end, it's the end of the beginning And I like the idea that we can tell a bigger story, perhaps with some broader view And I always wonder what's going on, do you know if there is or there is no contact with the wider world "I want to know the meta of everything," he said. "And I suppose I can get some touch in the story that's a very exciting suggestion for me … Maybe it's the beginning of a bigger story."
Walking Dead on AMC on Sunday at 9:00. ET.
