A new behind-the-scenes image shared by Michonne actor Danai Gurira shows Andrew Lincoln bloodied up as Rick Grimes for their Walking Dead spinoff.
As filming on Rick and Michonne’s The Walking Dead spinoff continues, actor Danai Gurira shares a behind-the-scenes image of Andrew Lincoln all covered in blood. After both featuring prominently in The Walking Dead, both Lincoln’s Rick Grimes and Gurira’s Michonne ultimately left AMC’s hit zombie drama before it concluded with season 11 last year. Now, both characters are set to be reunited once more in an upcoming spinoff, which finally entered production recently after numerous delays.
After the first Rick and Michonne Walking Dead spinoff image was released last week, Gurira has now taken to Twitter to share a behind-the-scenes at a very bloody Lincoln on the show’s set.
Throughout his time on The Walking Dead, Rick was frequently shown with blood covering his face, either after killing walkers or rival human survivors. While not revealing too much about the story or setting, the latest image does suggest that this bloody Rick trend will be continuing as he faces off against new enemies.
What To Expect From The Rick & Michonne Walking Dead Spinoff
After they had departed the show during earlier seasons, Lincoln and Gurira return for brief cameos in The Walking Dead series finale, helping to set up some events to come. The short scenes featured Rick and Michonne during different times as the former hides his boots, journal, and phone as a CRM helicopter approaches. The later scene features Michonne finding these items in the same location, a sign that she’s hot on the trail of her missing husband.
The Rick & Michonne spinoff has been described as an “epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world“, suggesting it won’t be long before Michonne eventually tracks Rick down and the two are reunited once more. That brief synopsis suggests that it might not be smooth sailing for the couple at first, since both characters will seemingly be different from when audiences last saw them. Beyond those somewhat vague details, it’s not entirely clear what the actual story will be for the Walking Dead spinoff show.
It’s also not clear if any returning characters will be showing up in new Rick and Michonne’s new show. Daryl (Norman Reedus) is getting his own The Walking Dead spinoff and the actor has already teased that there will likely be some guest appearances or cameos from other familiar faces, meaning it’s possible that the Rick and Michonne’s series will be the same. That being said, the Rick and Michonne Walking Dead show is being billed as more of limited event series, meaning it may be more standalone than the other spinoffs.
