Rick Grimes fans, rejoice! The time is coming for the iconic character to return to the screen – except this time, he’s trading the small screen for the silver one.
When Andrew Lincoln left The Walking Dead, fans were assured that this was not the final time Lincoln would be playing Grimes. They’d just have to wait until The Walking Dead heads to the movies. Now, we’ve got a teaser.
It’s not much but it’s enough to keep fans interested for sure. Last we heard, filming was supposed to begin around this time, but AMC was set to air it as a TV movie. Plans seem to have changed, as the teaser states that Rick Grimes returns “only in theaters.”
Yeah, we’ll take that change. Watch it below:
Scott Gimple of AMC recently said last November:
“Right now, we’re working on three but there’s flexibility in that. … Over the next several years, we’re going to be doing specials, new series are quite a possibility, high-quality digital content, and then some content that defies description at the moment. We’re going to dig into the past and see old characters. We’re going to introduce new characters and new situations.”
Whatever the format, we’re happy to have Andrew Lincoln back to play Rick Grimes. The character was a favorite for many, many fans, and I don’t think any fan of show has any qualms with him returning.
