The Walking Dead Film Series (name pending) is an upcoming series in The Walking Dead's TV universe.

Development

It was announced on Talking Dead on November 4, 2018 that Rick Grimes and Anne would return for at least three AMC original films following their leave from the TV Series. These films would air on AMC (rather than theaters) and be a direct continuation of Rick's story. Robert Kirkman was revealed to be heavily involved with the film trilogy.[1] Scott Gimple also later explained that "doesn't necessarily mean it's the only Rick Grimes stories we're ever going to tell."[2]

On July 19, 2019, at Comic-Con, a teaser was released, confirming that the movies will be released in theaters and will also be distributed by Universal Studios. However, on April 28, 2020, AMC Theaters announced that they would no longer screen films distributed by Universal Pictures in response to them releasing Trolls World Tour directly to digital VOD due to the coronavirus pandemic.[3] As such, it is currently unknown if Universal will still distribute the films and if the films will still be released in theaters.

Trivia

  • It is possible Heath will appear in the movies, as Angela Kang confirmed Anne traded him with the Civic Republic Military. In reality, Corey Hawkins' schedule as a movie actor meant he could not commit to the TV show past his last appearance in "Swear", but as movies are smaller filming commitments, he could well appear.[4]
  • In the teaser trailer, a skyline of Philadelphia is seen, hinting at the possible setting of the movies.
