the walking dead It has finally come to an end after 11 seasons with very good moments and some that are both questionable. But still, definitely, one of the most important productions in the last decade. A real success for AMC from which some have already detached spin offs released in recent years and a few that we will see in the future. Its last episode also returns two very important characters in the series: Rick Grimes Y Michonne.
The first, played by andrew lincolnlet the walking dead in the ninth season. With all the characters believing that he had died after sacrificing himself to blow up a bridge to prevent a zombie invasion. Although later you can see a scene where there is a rescue in a helicopter, with the character alive.
In the case of Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, she left the series in the tenth season, with the excuse that she would undertake the search for Rick Grimes after discovering clues that he was alive.
After the battle of the Commonwealth, there is a jump in time of a year, where it is revealed that some of the communities that we have seen throughout the last seasons of the series, have prospered. After Daryl’s farewell, we see scenes with the characters, each separately, writing letters that they hope will be read at some point by their loved ones. Although they are apparitions that could well be described as cameosthe presence of both characters in the final episode of the walking dead it’s extremely important.
Why do Rick Grimes and Michonne return at the end of The Waking Dead?
The objective of the reappearance of both characters in the final episode of the walking dead is to lay the foundations of spin-off with Rick Grimes and Michonne. Originally intended as a trilogy of films, it was transformed into a series described as “a love story in post-apocalyptic times.”
In fact, the scene with Rick Grimes and the helicopter is a flashback to something that happened in the ninth season of the series. The character can be seen keeping a broken iPhone with a drawing on it in a bag, which Michonne discovered in season ten.
The spin-off It will not only show the meeting of both characters, but what has happened to them since their departure from the walking dead until the present. What we do know is that the latest episode of the series suggests that Michonne has yet to uncover any more clues as to where Rick is. The only thing keeping him hopeful is a broken iPhone and a pair of boots.
The Walking Dead has become a hugely important franchise for AMC, in the same way that Game of Thrones it is for HBO. The end of the series works as the beginning of a relevant group of new productions that are going to expand the franchise. The ones that have already been released:
- Fear The Walking Dead.
- The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
- Tales of the Walking Dead.
The series that will be released in the future, after the end of the walking dead:
- The Walking Dead: Dead Cityfocused on Negan and Maggie.
- Daryl Dixonwhich will continue to tell the experiences of the character who was in the series the longest.
- The Rick and Michonne series.
That is, a total of six new series and miniseries. All with the aim of keeping the franchise that began in AMC when the first episode of the production aired on December 31, 2010.
Besides that the end of the walking dead suggests a possible future where we see more adventures from some of the younger characters, later on, as adults. Everything will depend on the success spin offs have over the next few years.
