This week's big swan song for Andrew Lincoln and the Rick Grimes character he's played since 2010 turned out to be not quite the death finale some thought it would be given how people usually leave the series.

After nine seasons fighting off walkers on AMC's Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln announced that he would be exiting the show following tonight's season finale.

Production on the first film is to begin next year.

Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick's steadfast leadership. "These films are going to be big evolutions of what we've been doing on the show, with the scope and scale of features".

Did Rick Grimes die last night?

The multiple The Walking Dead movies are just the first part of AMC's long-term plan to expand the zombie franchise, which will include "multiple new scripted ventures", according to THR.

Much of the episode - which picked up with Rick skewered by a metal pole and surrounded by zombies - reached back to the program's past, a magical mystery tour through its best (and better) days, featuring a number of cameos by since-departed regulars. As The Walking Dead fans well know, the main motivator behind Lincoln's departure from the series was his desire to be closer to his family, who all reside in his home country of England.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC. I want to know the meta of it all.

He added that the movies will live in the same world as all other Walking Dead content, but that they'll focus on different stories. But this is still the same world of The Walking Dead ...

My favorite anecdote comes from Eugene portrayer Josh McDermitt, who recalls that on his first day, Lincoln came in on his day off to meet him and Michael Cudlitz and Christian Serratos. "We're not putting all this stuff out at once but have a very long view of everything", he said.

"We are telling Rick's story in another medium, and it's going to be these AMC Studios original films", Gimple told Entertainment Weekly.

Jon Bernthal returns to The Walking Dead fold on Sunday's episode, and though we don't have details about the nature of his return we do know what he looks like thanks to Greg Nicotero, who shared this photo of Lincoln and Bernthal on set.
