The announcement comes after this week's episode, which saw Rick seemingly mortally wounded and sent off by the helicopter that Jadis has previously been in contact with, sent to an unknown locale. On tonight's Talking Dead follow-up special, Walking Dead chief content officer Scott Gimple revealed that Rick will be the focus of several "AMC Originals" films that continue where Rick's story left off in tonight's episode.
The previous instalment, which was similarly heavily marketed as being the beginning of the end for Rick, ended with a major hint towards how he'd exit: attempting to lead a massive herd of walkers away, his horse gets spooked and throws him off; Rick lands on a concrete slab, knocked unconscious, and with rebar impaling his side.
Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick's steadfast leadership. They're centered around Rick Grimes.

In addition, Wickremesinghe refused to accept his dismissal, claiming to be the country's legitimate prime minister. It has two prime ministers, or at least two politicians both laying claim to be the sole legal head of government.
Fans will be very excited to learn that the upcoming movies will show "a different corner of the world". "There is always the possibility of interconnectivity but we don't just want to tell those stories". AMC stresses that while Grimes will not return to the television series, his story will continue to be told in the movies.
So, where will we meet up with Rick?
There's still much to learn about the Walking Dead movies, but it seems that Gimple has a solid plan for how to craft the projects to keep viewers hooked and give them new stories to obsess over and new characters to fall in love with.
Late Marcus Rashford goal gives Manchester United win at Bournemouth
The 27-year-old is certainly the best player we have at United and was brilliant in our 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday. Now, I enjoy comebacks as much as the next football fan.
