Is Rick Grimes coming back for season 11 of The Walking Dead?
After more than a decade, THE WALKING DEAD is coming to a close. Will Rick Grimes, on the other hand, make one final appearance?
The Walking Dead is one of the most popular TV shows in recent memory, rising in popularity almost immediately after its premiere on AMC in 2010.
Season 11 is set to be the final season of the show, and fans are hoping to see Rick Grimes return (played by Andrew Lincoln). With a Rick Grimes film in the works, it could be the ideal time to bring back the original star.
The final season of The Walking Dead is almost here, airing on August 22 and bringing the epic zombie tale to a close.
Rick, the series’ initial protagonist, quit the show in 2018, and his departure shocked viewers.
Throughout the majority of the series, Rick served as the viewer’s eyes, allowing viewers to empathize to the protagonists’ terrifying new environment.
Fans have been expecting for a quick return, or at the absolute least a cameo, since Andrew Lincoln announced his departure from the program.
Rick went out in a blaze of glory amid an impossible zombie invasion in episode five of season nine, titled What Comes After.
Rick was tossed into a river, bloodied and battered, after destroying the bridge that led to the rest of the group.
While it appeared like Rick’s death was a certain conclusion, he washed ashore on the shores of the survivor’s camp by Jadis (played by Pollyanna McIntosh).
She had planned to betray them with a helicopter nearby, but she told a barely awake Rick that she no longer wanted to harm anyone.
Finally, she summoned a helicopter, and Rick was seen being whisked away to safety while being assured that he would be fine.
Rick hasn’t been seen since, and his whereabouts are still unclear, making his departure from the show one of the most enigmatical aspects of the story.
With Season 11 being the final season of the main series, many are hopeful Rick would emerge one last time to explain what happened to him.
Nothing has been confirmed by AMC, the actors, or the crew, however Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, has said that he begged Lincoln to return.
Reedus told RadioTimes, “He’s like, ‘Uh…’ you know, he won’t say anything.” He refuses to make a commitment.
“However,” says the Brinkwire Summary News.
