No Rick Grimes In Season 10 Of The Walking Dead
When showrunner Angela Kang was asked about the possibility of Andrew Lincoln returning as Rick Grimes in season 10 of the show, she replied:
“The door is always open Andy.You can come back anytime.”
In the full interview with Deadline, Kang said that:
“Not this season, but man, I would love it if he did. You know we were talking about having him direct something for a while, but then he wanted to focus on some acting stuff, and he didn’t want to drop out on us at the last minute if something came along, and you know he’s been doing a movie lately.”
Andrew Lincoln had planned to make his The Walking Dead directorial debut in season 10, but was forced to drop out due to scheduling issues.
The Story Of Rick So Far And What The Future Holds
Season 9 saw Rick being abducted by a shadowy organization just after he narrowly survived being blown up with a bridge. He is believed to be dead by Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl (Norman Reedus) and others for more than six years in the Walking Dead universe. While Lincoln might not be showing up in season 10, but he will be reprising his role in the planned trilogy of silver screen movies under former show runner turned TWD chief content officer Scott Gimple. After all Rick Grimnes is the perfect Zombie hero.
Gimple had previously stated that Rick Grimes’s story wasn’t over yet. In an interview with EW last November, he said that it was:
“really important for the audience to know that we are going to be continuing to tell the story of Rick Grimes in these AMC Studios original films. We don’t want this thing to be like, ‘Oh, well, he’ll be back on the show any moment now.'”
AMC and Universal Pictures, who will distribute the TWD movies have not yet announced a release date for The Walking Dead movie yet.
The Walking Dead Season 10 returns with new episodes Feb. 23, 2020 on AMC.
