We know that the filming of the series derived from Rick & Michonne will start between January and February next year. There is no official title for now.
According to the network, Rick & Michonne will bring the epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world. Separated by distance. By an invincible power. By the ghosts of who they were. Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built into a war against the dead… And finally, a war against the living.
Can they meet? Are they enemies? Lovers? Victims? Winners? Without each other, are they really alive or will they find out they’re just the undead?
The Walking Dead accompanies a group of survivors of a world destroyed by zombies, living their internal conflicts. The drama sometimes moves away from the “zombies” theme to focus on more personal issues, emphasizing the personalities of normal people who are altered by the tragedy.
