The Walking Dead boss Scott Gimple has teased fans and suggested we haven’t seen the last of Richonne – but when will they be back?
The zombie apocalypse show’s chief content officer has refused to give too much away, but he admitted Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) could return in the future while discussing plans for the upcoming spin-off films.
He told ComicBook.com: ‘We are still working on the movie. It is proceeding.’
The blockbuster instalment will be the moment fans finally find out what happened after Rick was taken in a Civic Military helicopter in season nine, which left him away from Michonne and kids Judith (Cailey Fleming) and RJ (Antony Azor).
And while the movie could also be the best place for a reunion, Gimple wasn’t going to be drawn into details.
Asked if viewers have seen the last of the pair, he responded: ‘I mean, I really don’t think so. I just said we were working on the movies, you asked that question, we’ll leave it at that.’
Gimple suggested viewers ‘should pay attention to the way that Michonne left the show’, which saw the character fall in with a caravan of migrants at the end of her exit episode.
Earlier this year, the showrunner also admitted it is ‘definitely fair to assume” Gurira will be back on screen with Lincoln for the upcoming offshoot movies.
However, he insisted the actress could be in line to be the focus of her own spin-off project.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter before the coronavirus pandemic impacted the film and television industry, he said: ‘With the films, we definitely have plans. But even beyond the current plans, I have some ambitions.
‘I love her and Rick together, but I love seeing her as the pure lead on her own, too. It just so happens that there’s a lot of story terrain to cover.
‘But you’re right: it’s ambitions. Right now, the plans have to do with the feature film.’
The Walking Dead returns February 28 on AMC and Fox.
