AMC network announces the expansion of The Walking Dead universe

The Walking Dead season 9

The Walking Dead season 9

He's finally gone from the TV show, but after nine years, Rick Grimes' story in The Walking Dead universe is really only getting started. Last night, Rick suffered a mortal wound, but instead of dying, he was airlifted to parts unknown, giving audiences the serious sensation that they were being jerked around.

Just as it seemed Rick was sacrificing himself to save the Hilltop from a massive zombie invasion, Rick survived what seemed like certain death and will remain a part of the Walking Dead franchise.

"The Walking Dead" had been billed as the last appearance by Lincoln on the mothership series. 'Right now, we're working on three but there's flexibility in that'. "We wanted to see the entire marketplace from one seat".

Gimple is already writing the first of three "big budget" made-for-TV-movies. The movies are scheduled to begin production in 2019. They're centered around Rick Grimes. "There's a lot of story to tell".

For more on tonight's episode and its unexpected plot twists, check out our review of "What Comes After." This here with us, this is our thing. He told me what the backstory for the philosophy of those people are and, while I don't know everything that's planned for that movie, we were like, "Okay that's a pretty cool story".

This is indeed surprising.

MEXICO BORDER: Trump deploys 5,200 soldiers over migrant influx
Children of migrants wait for a ride near Tapanatepec, Mexico, as their caravan continues toward the US border, October 29, 2018. The first group passed through the spot via the river - wading or on rafts - and was advancing through southern Mexico.

"This is the end of Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead, but this is not the end of Rick Grimes' story", Gimple said. Where does the show go from here? Whether that change is for better or worse (or the same) remains to be seen, but a newly revealed trailer teases out the next few episodes to come in the now airing ninth season.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.

Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the rest of the survivors watched on in terror, presumably thinking that was the end of Rick.

Fellow AMC execs David Madden and Linda Schupack also received promotions, with Madden will now head network programming while Schupack will be the new President of Marketing, Entertainment networks. At that time it was announced he would look to expand the brand of the show across a variety of platforms. "It is about who [Rick] is and who he's going to be - and certainly how he deals with the situation he's in", Gimple said. "I wake up, the phone rings, he wants to talk about everything on the way to work".

He wants to be home, huh?

Some actors appear just once in the tribute and there are a few notable absences like Chandler Riggs, who played Grimes' son Carl up until last season, when he died after suffering a bite from a walker.
