It’s been 13 years since The Walking Dead first arrived on AMC like a sonic boom, kicking off a horror universe that has since spawned five spinoffs. A sixth series is arriving Feb. 25 on the network, and The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live marks both a major shift in the franchise and monumental return.
Andrew Lincoln, who played Rick Grimes until he left the series in Season 9 will return to The Ones Who Live alongside Danai Gurira, who starred as Michonne for seven seasons before departing in 2020. What might surprise fans of The Walking Dead Universe, as reporters learned Tuesday afternoon at the show’s Television Critics Association press conference in Los Angeles, is that, after more than a decade of gruesome violence, thrills, and intensity, The Ones Who Live is, at heart, “an epic love story.”
In fact, the chance to revisit the characters in this capacity is what convinced Lincoln and Gurira to return, with the pair also serving as executive producers and Gurira even writing one of the season’s pivotal episodes.
