AMC has officially announced that the highly-anticipated The Walking Dead spin-off Rick and Michonne has now been slated to make its debut in 2024. The network has also confirmed that they’re currently planning to start its production sometime this year.
The Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira-led drama was initially set to premiere this year along with two other spin-offs The Walking Dead: Dead City and The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, which are all centered around the original series’ leading survivors. Besides Rick and Michonne, the target releases for Dead City and Daryl Dixon have also been revealed, with the Jeffrey Dean Morgan-led series arriving in June, and will be followed by the Norman Reedus show’s premiere later this year.
Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira are set to reprise their fan-favorite roles in the upcoming Rick & Michonne series. It will be written and produced by Scott Gimple, who will also serve as the showrunner. Gurira will also be credited as a co-creator and co-writer for the six-episode drama.
“This series presents an epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world,” reads the synopsis. “Kept apart by distance. By an unstoppable power. By the ghosts of who they were. Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built on a war against the dead … And ultimately, a war against the living. Can they find each other and who they were in a place and situation unlike any they’ve ever known before?”
Based on Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard’s comic series of the same name, The Walking Dead is executive produced by Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert, Joseph Incaprera, Gale Anne Hurd, Denise Huth, and Angela Kang.
