The Walking Dead Movies
So what does this mean for the movie trilogy? They are no longer in production. Many factors influenced the delay of the films, the pandemic and the announcement of the end of the flagship series, to name two important ones. And in the midst of all this, AMC saw changes in executives who thought keeping this story “in-house” was a much better idea.
This means the movies are removed, but the story will be told in a series. This is great news for the fandom, as AMC will retain control of the story and Lincoln and Gurira will executive produce the project.
The movies were also teased in the series
There were also some hints in The Walking Dead series that point to the movies. For example, in season 10 episode 13, Michonne found Rick Grimes’s boots and a drawing of her and Judith on a smartphone. She found the two on a stranded ship.
