Rick, Michonne, and Jadis are back along with a new cast of characters that are sure to make The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live series worth the wait. On February 25, AMC and AMC+ will premiere the Rick and Michonne spinoff the fandom has longed for.
After showing several vague teasers, AMC released the first look trailer for The Ones Who Live series, clocking at just a bit over two minutes long. The video reveals much more regarding what this series will entail in this action-packed and emotional first look at the spinoff. Watch it below.
The trailer begins with a look at Michonne (Danai Gurira) as she talks of finding Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and encounters a walker horde of mass proportions. Rick appears and is heard speaking of his wife, his daughter, and his life being his choice. Newcomer Nat (Matthew Jeffers) gives Michonne a bit of knowledge from her husband as he translates the Japanese writing on the phone she found with etchings of her and Judith (Cailey Fleming), "Believe a little bit longer."

The Ones Who Live focuses on Rick and Michonne's journeys to reunite with each other. Neither has given up hope of finding the other, but being separated for so long hasn't been easy.
"The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live 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?"- AMC Networks
Viewers are given a good look at the CRM military, led by Major General Beale (Terry O'Quinn), and a first look at an interaction between Rick and Beale. Warrant Officer Jadis Stokes (Pollyanna McIntosh) and newcomer Pearl Thorne (Lesley-Ann Brandt) are also featured.
This trailer gives an extended look at the new series and what viewers can expect. It has been reported that the budget for this series is approx. $13.7 million per episode, and it is evident from the trailer that it has been money well spent.
