THE WALKING DEAD Showrunner Angela Kang Says "The Door Is Always Open" For Rick Grimes To Return

It seems like Rick Grimes fans might have a reason to tune back into The Walking Dead after all! Read on for the latest on the chances of everybody's favorite deputy's return to the flagship series!

Season 10 of AMC's hit zombie drama The Walking Dead officially reached the halfway point on Sunday. With the main series charging ahead, the success of Fear the Walking Dead, the new series World Beyond dropping in a few months, and the trilogy of films to come, nobody really expected Rick Grimes to return to the small screen anytime soon, if at all.

However, showrunner Angela Kang would have it otherwise if she could. In a recent interview with Deadline, this is what she had to say about Officer Friendly's potential return.
"Not this season, but man, I would love it if he did. You know we were talking about having him direct something for a while, but then he wanted to focus on some acting stuff, and he didn’t want to drop out on us at the last minute if something came along, and you know he’s been doing a movie lately."

Lincoln is obviously going to have his hands full starring in the upcoming trilogy of movies, but Kang went on to personalize the sentiment.

"You know, he’s…yeah, the door is always open. Andy, you can come back any time."

With Lauren Cohan returning in the back half of Season 10, Lincoln wouldn't be the first cast member to leave and come back to the show. There was also a big gap early on for Lennie James (Morgan) and Michael Rooker (Merle) from the moment they were introduced to when they returned, seasons later.

What do you think? Will Lincoln actually return? Let us know your thoughts below!



In the fight against the Whisperers, there's no going back. 

The Walking Dead will return on February 23, 2020, on AMC.
