The Walking Dead Rick And Michonne Spinoff Series Confirmed?

It seems as though AMC might have decided to cancel their plans to make The Walking Dead movies in favour of making a Rick and Michonne spinoff show instead.

In a new interview this past weekend (via Twitter), actor Ross Marquand – who plays Aaron in the final series of The Walking Dead – noted that he’s heard rumours of a Rick and Michonne spinoff series being in the works, not a movie.

Andrew Lincoln, who played Rick Grimes in the show for years, ended up leaving the series a few years back.

Machonne, who played by Danai Gurira in the AMC series, did the same not long after Lincoln left.

Her character, Michonne, went off to find Rick, leaving it open for her character to return at some point in the future.

This was all then followed up with the annulment from AMC that they were working on a bunch of The Walking Dead movies.

It was revealed that these movies would give us more of Rick’s story and what he’s been up to since leaving the series.

However, it seems as though things have ground to a halt on these The Walking Dead movie plans.

There had been rumours that filming on one of these new movies would begin early this year.

However, we are now in April and nothing has happened yet.

It does seem as though pre-production on the movies was delayed due to Covid-19.

However, it seems as though AMC is working on more The Walking Dead spinoff series.

There have been rumours of a Rick and Michonne movie being in the works for quite some time.

Yet, it seems as though AMC has opted to make it a series rather than a movie, which is, I think, a good idea.

We already know further The Walking Dead spinoffs are coming.

The likes of The Tales Of The Walking Dead (which will see past characters return) has already been officially confirmed.

It was then revealed that Maggie and Negan will both have their own spinoff shows, as well as Daryl and Carol.

The truth is that The Walking Dead’s ratings have been taking a big hit for AMC.

That said, having further series to sell to international markets might end up being a more cost-effective avenue for the company and more successful than releasing three films.

With the delay to the films becoming ever-increasing, it seems like they won’t ever see the light of day.

We’ll keep you updated on this news as soon as we get it.

What do you think of these The Walking Dead Rick and Michonne spinoff series rumours?

Will we see another spinoff series over a movie?

    It says Negan and Maggie are each getting their own spinoffs. Actually they are supposed to be in a spinoff together titled Isle of the Dead.

    Definitely not Rick & Michonne spin off. When Rick left in the show, fans were told that he left to make TWD movies. Lol In reality, he was burned out playing Rick and instead of a Twd movie, he focused on making other type movies. Fans felt betrayed & confused. They don’t care about Rick like the other dedicated & faithful Twd characters. Unfortunately

      Just bring back Rick to the show with Michon by his side heading home to see his family and friends that’s been long over due , I don’t like watching fear the walking dead or world beyond.

    The Walking Dead has been taking a hit with the ratings and these new spin off shows should give it the boost it needs. But how about, instead of simply getting British actors to play lead roles in the series, why not actually make an overseas The Walking Dead?
    Doesn’t have to go on forever but a few seasons, using some of the talented actors/actresses seen in British soaps which are shown worldwide. Just a thought.

    I can’t wait for all of them. I love zombie apocalypse movies and shows as long as they make sense.

    I would love to see Rick n Michonne series. Weather it be a movie or series. I just want to see them back with their children. N for Rick to see his new son. How about darel n carol finding Rick n Michonne n then Maggie n negan finding them as well n all three spin off comes together. That would be awesome.

    I think that they need to bring back Rick and Michonne. It’s not the same without them. I think a movie, it’s finished as far as a series. It’s been a good run, let it go.
