Thanks to the Hollywood Reporter, We Know That the Michonne Hawthorne and Rick Grimes-centric “Walking Dead” Spin-off Will Not Reach the Small Screen in 2023
Season 11 of “The Walking Dead” concluded on November 20, 2022, marking the end of an era in television. The series finale, titled “Rest in Peace,” aired that night, marking the end of the AMC smash hit that had first shown on Halloween night in 2010. While this was a final farewell, the “Walking Dead” series itself will continue. The success of the original series and its several spinoffs ensure that the post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested drama will continue for the foreseeable future.
Shows centered on fan favorites Michonne Hawthorne (Danai Gurira) and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) are among the most anticipated of the upcoming “Walking Dead” spinoffs (Andrew Lincoln). Both of them had left the original “Walking Dead” before the series finale, only to return for that episode in order to establish their spin-off.
According to reports, the six-part miniseries would follow the couple as they try to get back together following their separation in the Season 9 episode “What Comes After,” Lincoln’s first farewell episode. If you’re one of the many who can’t wait to see how Michonne and Rick’s journey ends on their own show, you’ll be disappointed to learn that you won’t be able to until 2024.
The Conclusion of Rick and Michonne’s Story Won’t Be Revealed to the Walking Dead Fans Until 2024
We now know that the Michonne Hawthorne and Rick Grimes-focused “Walking Dead” spin-off won’t air on television in 2023 thanks to The Hollywood Reporter. Instead, AMC has pushed out the release date to 2024, with at least the start of production scheduled for 2023.
Naturally, this indicates that there is still a lot of waiting to be done before we get to spend more time with Michonne and Rick. However, if you’re looking forward to more “Walking Dead” television in general, you’re in luck. You won’t want to miss any of the great events that AMC has planned for 2023.
Before it rides off into the sunset, fans of the original “Walking Dead” spin-off, “Fear the Walking Dead,” still have one more season to look forward to. Beginning on May 14, 2023, the eighth and final season will consist of two blocks of six episodes each.
For “The Walking Dead: Dead City,” Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan will reprise their roles as Negan Smith and Maggie Rhee, respectively. It intends to debut sometime in June. The 2023 “Walking Dead” schedule will be concluded by the Norman Reedus-starring “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon.”
There is still much to look forward to for “Walking Dead” fans in the months to come, even though the original series is now formally history. Just a shame the eagerly awaited Rick and Michonne miniseries won’t be available until 2024. Only praying that it will be worth the wait.
