The long-awaited spin-off of The Walking Dead that brings Michonne and Rick Grimes back to the franchise based on Robert Kirkman’s comics now has an official title
The spin-off of The Walking Dead that brings together Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) has confirmed its title with a new official logo. The working title The Walking Dead: Summit used during production was just that: a working title. The logo’s stylized font is reminiscent of a military-style stencil, a design that warns of the CRM, the Civic Republic Army, the shadowy organization that whisked Rick away from The Walking Dead aboard a helicopter years ago.AMC has also revealed a new synopsis: “Rick Grimes and Michonne’s love story is changed by a different world. Kept apart by distance. For an unstoppable power. Can they meet and find out who they are in a situation unlike any they’ve ever known?” The last time Michonne saw Rick, he was apparently sacrificing himself by blowing up a bridge to save his family and friends from a horde of walkers. . Unbeknownst to her, the human trafficker Jadis/Anne (Pollyanna McIntosh) rescued Rick and turned him over to the Civic Republic. The hidden and fortified city of post-apocalyptic Philadelphia. Years passed when Michonne learned that Rick survived and set off to find him in order to bring him home to her children, Judith (Cailey Fleming) and Rick “RJ” Grimes Jr. (Antony Azor). Ending in The Walking Dead’s “Rest In Peace” series finale, a CRM helicopter thwarted Rick’s escape attempt from the Republic capital city. Where he was put to work cleaning up zombies at a CRM decontamination center. Elsewhere, a katana-wielding Michonne donned samurai armor and saddled a horse which she rode into a canyon filled with walkers. The Walking Dead Universe Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple, creator and showrunner of the series, described Rick and Michonne as “a crazy, epic love story” that takes place in a place never seen before in TWDU. “These are two people who have been apart for a long time. They have lived completely different existences and they have to find each other again, let alone each other. Hopefully it will be amazing,” Gimple joked on Talking Dead. “We see this incredible power couple, but we also see this Red Machete Rick. We see that Michonne who taught the Governor a thing or two. [La serie] it goes coast to coast between the intimate, the epic, and the crazy.” Bottom line: If you’re playing Rick and Michonne, you’re playing the wrong people. The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne is scheduled to premiere in 2024 on AMC and AMC+.
