Executive producer and former showrunner Scott Gimple announced they planned to create three AMC original films with Rick Grimes starring.
The films will follow Rick’s adventures after the events of his shocking exit.
Fans last saw Rick being airlifted to parts unknown, with his family believing he had died in a horrific explosion.
Lincoln previously told SFX Magazine “never say never,” when asked about a possible return for the show’s final season.
Despite preparing to return to the role in the first of The Walking Dead spin-off films, Lincoln isn’t ruling out a return to the zombie series.
The final season of The Walking Dead is scheduled for release sometime in Autumn 2021, and the release date for the spin-off film has yet to be announced.
