At the virtual New York Comic-Con 2020 panel for The Walking Dead, Dead creative head Scott Gimple gave a quick update on the status of the long-awaited Rick Grimes movie.

“We are working on it,” Gimple said, not going into anything further detail. Afterwards though, Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang would wind up teasing that fans may learn more about Rick and Michonne in the extra six episodes that were ordered for Season 10, that will airing the springtime. So expect some hints to be dropped via Judith, as we might learn things about her adopted mom’s journey through radio communications.

During the virtual panel for spinoff The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Gimple spoke about how the limited series was a precursor for Rick’s adventure. “The show obviously serves as an introduction to the organization/civilization that Rick has gotten somehow tied up in, in some way,” he said. “Rick Grimes kinda takes care of himself. He’s pretty good at that sort of thing. But it does look like his situation is going to be challenged in some kind of pronounced way. That I will say.”
