Double disappointment for ‘Walking Dead’ fans: Rick’s return is coming later and the next series is ending – Series News
American broadcaster AMC has once again revised its overall plan for “The Walking Dead” universe. Any new spin-offs will be delayed and the upcoming eighth season of Fear The Walking Dead will be its last.
Ever since he left The Walking Dead in 2018 and announced his own movie trilogy, fans of the series have been eagerly awaiting the return of former franchise character Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). After all, there was a small teaser on it recently at the end of the latest “Walking Dead” season, where Rick and his great lover Michonne (Danai Gurira) at least stopped by for a standalone finale.
