Andrew Lincoln returning as Rick Grimes in “The Walking Dead” film

Andrew Lincoln will reprise his role as Rick Grimes in an untitled Universal Pictures theatrical release after playing the character for nine seasons on AMC’s The Walking Dead (2010-), according to BuzzFeed News. A short video teaser premiered at a 2019 San Diego Comic-Con panel for The Walking Dead and AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead (2015-), with a helicopter rescuing a half-dead Rick at the end of his final episode. Executive producer Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer for The Walking Dead universe, is writing a series of films revolving around the character, which were initially expected to air on cable until Universal, in search of a new hit franchise, became involved.
