Warning! If you are a Richonne fan or even a fan of The Walking Dead in general, grab some tissues because the following new photo just might make you bawl your eyes out.
Emotions are running particularly high now that The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln’s impending departure is quickly getting closer and closure. Fans of the series are already devastated by the fact that Lincoln’s Rick Grimes will no longer be on the show after the upcoming ninth season. On Monday, Skybound’s The Walking Dead account added just a little more to our already depressed state by posting the most adorable Grimes family photo from the upcoming season.
The photo shows Rick, his love Michonne (played by Danai Gurira) and “baby” Judith (who certainly isn’t a baby anymore after the upcoming season’s time jump) standing in the field looking like the epitome of happiness. The Walking Dead account captured our exact first reactions to the photo in their caption which reads, “THEY’RE SO BEAUTIFUL,” followed by three sobbing face emojis.
It’s definitely a photo that will make you swoon with delight and love at the sight of a happy and healthy #Richonne relationship clearly visable. That happy feeling, however, is immediately followed by dread as you begin to think about what might happen to Rick Grimes and what that might mean for this one-time happy family.

Showrunner Angela Kang commented on the Richonne relationship on the Talking Dead Season 9 Preview Special which aired on Sunday. She said:
[row]“We’ll see that Rick and Michonne, it’s one of the strongest relationships that we have on the show, They’re raising Judith. They’re so in sync with each other and they support each other’s goals. They’re not doing exactly the same things, Michonne has her own journey she’s going through this season. This being Andy’s last season on the show, we’re going to explore what that does to Michonne.”[/row]
We’ve certainly been preparing for the worst while hoping for the best ever since Lincoln confirmed his speculated exit during last month’s San Diego Comic-Con Hall H Panel. According to reports, Lincoln is said to appear in just six episodes in the upcoming season.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC with new episodes starting on October 7th.
