The idea of The Walking Dead movies was first brought up in a report back in September - with additional TV spin-offs beyond Fear the Walking Dead also mentioned. While I was trying to peacefully watch Better Call Saul, I was greeted with loud advertisements touting "RICK GRIMES' FINAL EPISODES", so I chose to see just how the show would deliver.

The move comes after Rick was badly wounded in last week's "Walking Dead" episode, with this week's episode meant to serve as his swan song on that series.

It'll be intriguing to see how the big baddie is affected by the Rick news, and how it'll play into his character arc from the rest of season 9 onwards. Obviously, the agreements come with substantial pay increases. McBride's three-year total is estimated to be around $20 million.

As reported by Deadline, the Rick Grimes movies are among the first films in development from Gimple as part of a multi-year plan for THE WALKING DEAD UNIVERSE, which also includes other projects now in the works: additional films, specials, series, digital content and more. "The deals that we made for Norman and Melissa are franchise deals", said David Madden, AMC's President of programming. Instead, three TV movies are in the works, which Lincoln will star in. "There's a lot of people that are still there, who were there on the first day, and that's an immensely moving testament to the show, really".

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Rick and Anne's story will continue in these big-budget movies, the first of which is currently being written by Scott M. Gimple, the former Walking Dead showrunner who now serves as The Walking Dead chief content officer for AMC.

The two sides discussed a wide range of topics including Israel, Palestine and Saudi Arabia's relations with the US. Saudi Arabia does not officially recognize Israel and has no formal ties with the regime.

In addition to the Rick-centric films, AMC's release teased "additional films, specials, series, digital content and more".

London-born Lincoln, 45, announced his Walking Dead departure earlier this year and viewers have been waiting eagerly to see how his character leaves the show.

Andrew Lincoln's final episode of The Walking Dead airs Sunday, November 4 at 9pm on AMC. And then, end of the day, we get in my vehicle, or I get in my auto and I pull out of the parking lot and my phone rings, and he wants to talk more.
