The three movies will be the first of, "multiple new scripted ventures" that will expand The Walking Dead franchise. Looks like Rick got on that helicopter just in time. We can't be mourning this character forever, after all, and let's not forget that there's still 11 episodes of this season still to go.
Gimple is already writing the first of three "big budget" made-for-TV-movies. And now we know that we'll learn what happens next with him in a series of original films that will air on the channel (and, one assumes, on its regular Fox home here in the UK). "There's a lot of story to tell".
Last night's hugely eventful episode in fact saw the reappearance of a trio of deceased characters, with both Shane (played by Jon Bernthal) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) also making cameos from beyond the grave in Rick's mind.
I wanted to finish telling his story in the way that we began it: "with a filmic sensibility on a bigger scale and a more contained story - with an end point", he added. We definitely have some things up our sleeve that we'd love to do.
What do you make of the new announcement?
This is indeed surprising.
Alec Baldwin Arrested After Fight in NY
After the news of Baldwin's arrest broke out, President Trump said: " I wish him luck " when reporters asked, NBC reported. Police told the station that Baldwin was trying to hold a parking spot open near his home, when someone else took the spot.
Having leaned into the promotional benefits of Andrew Lincoln's departure, "The Walking Dead" couldn't exactly give him a low-key going-away party. However, other cast members were much more succinct, with Alanna Masterson (Tara Chambler) suggesting, "Go f-ck yourself" and Christian Serratos (Rosita Espinosa) proposing a simple "Badass".
Now, Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the rest of the group believe that Rick died because of this explosion.
"There were many iterations [of Rick's exit]", Andrew told The Hollywood Reporter.
However, despite who is and isn't there, perhaps the more moving moment in the video is when In Cold Blood vet Wilson says, "I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Lincoln once more, so that was really a great day for me".
As for what those films will involve, the outlook is still vague. We kind of deal with characters who were not able to find the closure that they wanted and that's definitely something that weighs on everybody. For me to want to do a limited number of episodes [of The Walking Dead] a year wouldn't feel like I was doing my job properly because playing this part has been so all-encompassing.
