"The Walking Dead" had been billed as the last appearance by Lincoln on the mothership series. While the exit of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), in an unprecedented manner for the show, is certainly a turning point, it's also the beginning of something new for the series.

The films are only the first step in the expansion of The Walking Dead franchise. Which answers the question to Sunday night's episode, titled "What Comes After", pretty clearly.

If you haven't been keeping up with The Walking Dead and don't want it spoiled for you then you're free to click out now.

Good news for THE WALKING DEAD fans!

It seems destiny has other plans for one Rick Grimes.

"We have a lot on the horizon - starting with a new epic featuring one of the greatest leading actors in television history and one of the best people I've ever met", said Walking Dead chief content officer Scott Gimple in a statement. That sort of sounds like Gimple and company are leaving open the possibility that Rick could eventually circle back to the main series, so we can go through all of this nonsense again.

Witnesses tell us. the actor got into an argument with another man over a parking spot near 10th Street and 5th Avenue. This is not 60-year-old Mr Baldwin's first run-in with the law - in 2014, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

The AMC exec went on to detail how several more Walking Dead projects are in the works that will show up for "years to come". According to THR, "Gimple's vision stretches beyond that and includes introducing content with brand new characters, revisiting old fan-favorite and obscure ones and, maybe, spinning off others in shows that could run anywhere from 16-episode seasons to short-order miniseries".

"It is really important for the audience to know that we are going to be continuing to tell the story of Rick Grimes in these AMC Studios original films". Season Nine has been marketed as the last hurrah for main character Rick Grimes. I mean - no, look, I mean every day that I'm with my family and I see my children's faces I know it's the right decision. I hope people will be relieved that he hasn't bled out - although the man must have about 28 pints of blood in him because he was bleeding for a considerable amount of that last episode!

Bubbling under all of this are the reports that ratings for The Walking Dead have been falling for a few years now, and now hover around what they were for the first season. However, Lincoln later realized that he wasn't ready to say goodbye to Rick and they began brainstorming ways for his storyline to continue outside the flagship series. Whether that change is for better or worse (or the same) remains to be seen, but a newly revealed trailer teases out the next few episodes to come in the now airing ninth season.
