  • TWD 905 JLD 0619 02981 RT.0

The spinoff series will consist of six episodes according to Deadline and it aims to wrap up story arcs between the two characters who were separated after the bridge explosion secured Lincoln’s exit as well as lead character Rick Grimes.

Scott Gimple will serve as showrunner with Lincoln and Gurira executive producing the series. Whether the characters ride off into the sunset or we see them get closure on their own remains to be seen but with the abrupt ending to both of these characters’ stories, closure is definitely needed and wanted by many fans.

President of Entertainment and AMC Studios Dan McDermott said:

“This is a moment fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting for since Rick disappeared in the helicopter early in season nine, and Michonne journeyed away on a quest to find him the following season. What a great surprise for the fans at this final Comic-Con for the series that launched this universe and made television history. We couldn’t be more excited for a truly epic series finale later this year and to see Andy and Danai return in a new series they helped create, one of three new series coming in 2023 that continue the stories of so many iconic and fan-favorite TWD characters.”

Universal Pictures previously had a feature-length film planned for Rick Grimes but it was confirmed that the all-new six-episode series would be replacing the film with Lincoln adding:

“This has been the most extraordinary journey playing Rick Grimes for the best part of a decade. The friendships I’ve made along the way are deep and lasting, so it’s fitting that I finally get to complete the story with Danai and Scott and the rest of the TWD family. I’m so excited to be returning to the screen as Rick, reuniting with Danai as Michonne, and bringing the fans an epic love story to add to the Walking Dead Universe.”

Gurira also chimed in praising her time on the series, saying:

“Michonne and this TWD family has meant so much to me, and to continue the journey of these beloved characters, alongside Scott and Andy, both creatively and in front of the camera, and bringing The Walking Dead fans something truly special is just glorious. I can’t wait to pick up the katana again.”

After the Hall H presentation, the official The Walking Dead social media account posted a poster to go alongside the announcement that features a silhouette of military aircraft and the iconic katana wielded by Michonee with a note that reads: ‘The new world’s gonna need Rick Grimes.”

The untitled Rick and Michonne The Walking Dead spinoff is set to premiere on AMC in 2023. Stay tuned as more information becomes available. Check out the poster below:
