“AMC”The Walking Dead: Those Who Live,” which features the return of beloved characters Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) from the original series, has released a new teaser.
The series is the next installment of the popular “The Walking Dead” franchise and will premiere on February 25, 2024 on both AMC and AMC+. Lincoln and Gurira are executive producers along with showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Denise Huth and Brian Bockrath.
“’The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live’ presents an epic love story of two characters transformed by a changed world. Separated by distance. For an unstoppable power. For the ghosts of who they were. “Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built on a war against the dead… And ultimately, a war against the living,” the show’s description reads. “Will they be able to find each other and know who they were in a place and situation like they have never known before? They are enemies? Lovers? Victims? Victors? Without each other, are they even alive or will they discover that they too are the Walking Dead?
Lincoln left “The Walking Dead” in 2018 after nearly ten years playing protagonist and former cop Rick Grimes, who later married the tough, katana-wielding Michonne. The shooting schedule in Georgia, he said, made it difficult for him to concentrate on spending time with his family in England.
“I have two young children, I live in a different country and they become less transportable as they get older.” Lincoln previously told EW Radio. “It was that simple. It was time for her to come home.”
Lincoln’s character disappeared during season 9, in which he was presumed dead, while Gurira’s character left during season 10. They both later made cameos in the 2022 season finale, hinting at their upcoming spin. -off. Lincoln addresses his absence from “The Walking Dead” universe in the new trailer.
“People say, ‘Where have you gone?’” Lincoln acknowledges. “Our ambition is to have some answers.”
“It’s a really exciting story to tell,” Gurira says. “These two people are so powerful and together it’s crazy. “This is crazy love.”
