It sounds as though Andrew Lincoln might not only be returning as Rick Grimes in upcoming The Walking Dead movies.
He might also be returning in the main AMC Walking Dead series, which would be brilliant.
He revealed this in a recent interview with Total Film.
Lincoln started off by revealing that they haven’t started filming The Walking Dead movie yet.
I’m not filming at the moment. I’m still very much in lockdown. We’re very excited about how, at the first available opportunity, we’re going to go into production – there’s talk of it being spring. I can’t wait to get those cowboy boots.
Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes could be returning in The Walking Dead series
That’s a very good question. The easy answer is I have no idea. I don’t think it’s written yet, but I would never say never to that because everybody that’s still doing the TV show are dear friends, and it’s an extraordinary feat that they’re still going and making this beautiful and ground-breaking show that still resonates with the world.
There will be more Rick Grimes no matter what
Lincoln then went on to add that there will be more Rick Grimes in the future, even if he doesn’t return in the series.
I have signed for more than one film. I am a producer on it. I will not be directing, because I don’t like watching myself, so that would be a self-defeating exercise. It would just be the most painful… yeah, it just wouldn’t happen! All of those answers will hopefully be resolved in the next couple of months but, yes, there’s more than one. We need to get the first one absolutely right and that’s why it’s taken longer than we anticipated – and obviously with the pandemic. I can’t wait. I’m really excited about broadening the scale and scope of the story and finding out where Rick is.
