Is Rick returning to The Walking Dead? – Undead Walking

In less than a month, The Walking Dead will begin airing the last eight episodes of the series. From the looks of the trailer, things will be action-packed right at the get as our survivors, who have been scattered for most of season 11, will come together against the recent big bad, the Commonwealth. One question that keeps popping up is, will Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) be returning to the series before the end?

Rick Grimes was the leader of the main group of survivors from the beginning of the series until his apartment demise in season 9. He heroically blew up a bridge to save his family as they watched in horror. But, unbeknownst to them, he was blown clear and found on the rivers edge by Anne (Pollyanna McIntosh). She proceeded to rescue him, aided by the Civic Republic and taken away in a helicopter.

His family has mourned his loss greatly, and things have suffered since his departure.But, his wife Michonne (Danai Gurira) discovered that he didnt die and went in search of him. She did share this information with his daughter Judith (Cailey Fleming), who hasnt shared this information with anyone. The only other person within the communities that is aware of this is Virgil (Kevin Carroll), and he hasnt been seen since the storms at Alexandria.

If I am perfectly honest, I dont believe we will see Rick in the flagship series before the end. I say this because showrunners and creators have known for much longer than the San Diego Comic-Con announcement that things had changed, and instead of a trilogy of movies, a Rick and Michonne series would be created instead. I dont think they would feel the need for a Rick appearance in the series.

Do I think he should make an appearance? Absolutely. This series began with and should end with Rick Grimes. And I would be delighted if I am wrong.
