Last night's hugely eventful episode in fact saw the reappearance of a trio of deceased characters, with both Shane (played by Jon Bernthal) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) also making cameos from beyond the grave in Rick's mind.

A new corner of the zombie apocalypse for Rick?

This week's episode focused on Rick freeing himself and trying to get away from a herd of impending walkers. On tonight's Talking Dead follow-up special, Walking Dead chief content officer Scott Gimple revealed that Rick will be the focus of several "AMC Originals" films that continue where Rick's story left off in tonight's episode.

So, where will we meet up with Rick? We can't be mourning this character forever, after all, and let's not forget that there's still 11 episodes of this season still to go. It would have been a fitting death for Rick, coupled with some badass last words, "I got 'em". "Your performance as Rick Grimes is one I will never forget". We have a very clear idea of where Maggie is in the universe and what she's doing and have some stuff brewing in our minds in terms of what the next story would be that we'd tell, so hopefully that all works out.

The multiple The Walking Dead movies are just the first part of AMC's long-term plan to expand the zombie franchise, which will include "multiple new scripted ventures", according to THR.

The network on Sunday announced a series of films about the character are in development, with the first expected to begin production early next year. "So why don't we try to potentially continue this story in a different way and maybe complete his story so the mothership can continue". 'We know Rick Grimes, he would want to be home'.

Speaking with Variety at the show's season nine premiere, the cast of "The Walking Dead" reflected on their time acting alongside Lincoln's character before offering up their thoughts on what his future tombstone might say. "You know what he's capable of, and I thought the idea of a character that the audience knows and has lived with - and who has oscillated between psycho and father for nine years - to start in a completely different place, was a really interesting, insane place to begin".

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
