Should You Keep Watching The Walking Dead Without Rick Grimes? The former Deputy Sheriff, who has been the heart and soul of this series over the past eight-and-a-half seasons is departing, and AMC have made sure to cash in on that fact.

This Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead bid goodbye to its grizzled lead of nine seasons - or did it? For the longest time, it looks like Rick is done for.

There are spoilers below for Monday night's episode of The Walking Dead in the UK.

However, the character will remain in The Walking Dead universe. Tonight, after his exit from the series proper, AMC announced that Andrew Lincoln had signed aboard for of a series of upcoming movies starring the character that will tell his story after being carted off via helicopter, mortally wounded.

Production for the features will begin sometime in early 2019.

Where they can take heart, however, is the three point lead they have over opponents Manchester United ahead of Saturday's match. The Red Devils are already 9 points behind with early pacesetter Manchester City with their title dreams all but over.

"Rick is forced to face the past as he struggles to maintain the safety of the communities and protect the future he and Carl envisioned."

Lincoln said deciding to leave the show was not easy.

Speaking before the final episode aired, he said: "I mean every day that I'm with my family and I see my children's faces I know it's the right decision".

Echoing Serratos' tombstone sentiment, Tom Payne (Paul "Jesus" Rovia) also highlighted Rick's hardened personality with his tombstone message, "you didn't know who you were f-ing with", while Callan McAuliffe (Alden) suggested "legend" - not only for Lincoln's character but for the actor himself, he added. It's that simple. But I miss it terribly and I miss the relationships and I miss the people. There were story ideas brewing that, as the years went on, seemed very compatible with continuing to tell the Rick story in another format that would allow him time with his family.

"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", he explained. 'We know Rick Grimes, he would want to be home'.
