The network has a promo for the fifth series of the ninth season of the Walking Dead, which promises fans goodbye to one of the main characters of the show – Rick Grimes. In the video and on the new promotional shots you can notice interesting details, intriguing hints and references to the pilot series of the show.
The teaser for the “What Happens After” series begins with the wounded Rick entering the city of Atlanta, the city in which the story of the Walking Dead began 9 years ago. The phrase Michonn “We do not die” refers to the original comic book, a reference to which is also a frame with the corpses around the hero. Rick is being pursued by hallucinations with long-lost heroes, for the execution of whose roles Joe Berntral (Shane), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and the recently deceased Scott Wilson (Herschel) returned to the set for a short time.
What is really waiting for the hero in the 5th series will become clear only on November 4th. For Andrew Lincoln, this is the last episode as an actor. Then he will try his hand at directing and put one of the episodes of the series in the future. Lincoln stated this in one of his interviews: “I cannot leave for good, because I cannot accept this. I will come back to try myself as a director, and get down to work next year. ”
