Speculation continues that Andrew Lincoln may be returning to the role of Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead. Photos taken this past week certainly help support the argument that Lincoln may be preparing for the role, as his trademark beard appears to be making a comeback.
As the pandemic is slowing and production begins to start on several fronts, the long-awaited Rick Grimes movie may be soon to be underway. As well, fans have started to argue whether or not it is Rick that is under the Masked Stranger’s mask that is seen in the Season 10 Finale trailer for The Walking Dead.
Lincoln has previously stated that he may have left the show too soon, as the writing for the show has been strong the past two seasons. There wouldn’t be a more exciting moment on the show than to have Rick Grimes make a comeback in the Season 10 finale of the show of which the episode is titled, “A Certain Doom.” An appearance in the final episode, albeit brief, would excite past and present viewers of the show to make sure that Season 11 would be appointment television again.
However, if it’s not Rick under the mask, it’s surely got to be time for Lincoln to return to the role and get the movies underway. The films were announced two years ago when Lincoln was departing the show and his role as Rick Grimes. Yet, Lincoln made it a point to say that his relationship with Rick Grimes was far from over.
As we near the end of Season 10, we do know that a Season 10b is set for early next year. There will be a six episode continuation of Season 10, followed by Season 11 later in the year. Other than a confirmation for Season 10b and Season 11, there has been no commitment to a Season 12 and fans are speculating whether or not the flagship series for The Walking Dead Universe will continue or will Season 11 take us directly into the Rick Grimes films?
Either way, fans are ready for their hero to return. It’s time for Rick Grimes to return to the world of The Walking Dead. The world needs Rick Grimes!
