In 2022 AMC announced that instead of the trilogy of Walking Dead movies that had long been promised, the network would instead create a series surrounding the story of Rick and Michonne, which would see Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira reprise their roles. Fans of The Walking Dead were shocked and excited at this announcement officially made at San Diego Comic-Con when Lincoln and Gurira made a surprise appearance.

The result, a series with a working title of Summit that began filming in February 2023.

While little information has been released regarding the series, one thing is known the long-awaited reunion of Rick and Michonne will finally be seen. Viewers are hopeful that the series will fill in the gaps of what has occurred with the two characters since they were last seen in the main series.

Pollyanna McIntosh will return as Jadis, which only makes sense since she is a high-ranking official in the CRM (Civic Republic Military), the organization she traded Rick to. Another new character, played by Lucifer actress Lesley-Ann Brandt is Pearl Thorne, but nothing is known about this character yet.

The synopsis for the series reads:

"This series presents an epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world. Kept apart by distance. By an unstoppable power. By 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. Can they find each other and who they were in a place and situation unlike any they’ve ever known before? Are they enemies? Lovers? Victims? Victors? Without each other, are they even alive — or will they find that they, too, are the Walking Dead?"
