Rick Grimes is a must-have for the final season of the Walking Dead, as many fans would agree. Now, I won’t be including too many spoilers about the final season in this article. Although we did receive an inside scoop regarding whether or not Andrew Lincoln is involved with the final season. Sadly we only have details so far and no photographic evidence, but we hope to have something very soon.
Now I did say that I won’t be including any spoilers for season 11, but this theory does relate to our exclusive scoop. So this theory may be a potential spoiler but you can just take it with a grain of salt, as I really am just theorizing right now.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AS THEORY INCLUDES INSIDE INFORMATION
Rick Grimes Back For Season 11?
So all leaks and rumors aside, I am simply theorizing as a fan in this article.
So for those of you reading who haven’t caught wind about our inside scoop yet, beware of major spoilers.
Whether you choose to believe us or not, we have verified insider information that Andrew Lincoln will indeed be returning for the final season. We also know for a fact that this will officially be “leaked” before the final season airs its first episode. You can read everything we know so far about the Rick Grimes leak inside here. You can also follow us on Twitter or Instagram to be the first to see our next big update.
Rick Grimes Post Credit Scene Theory
I believe that Andrew Lincoln’s return will be in the form of a post-credits scene attached to the finale. Why do I think that? Well, in my opinion, it wouldn’t make too much sense for Rick Grimes to suddenly pop out of nowhere. If you take the current commonwealth storyline into consideration, it just seems out of place.
If Andrew Lincoln had returned to shoot multiple episodes then maybe this would be believable. However, from what we learned, he definitely isn’t… but you never know… he very well could have!
My main reasoning behind believing it will be a post-credits scene is due to the Rick Grimes movies that are in motion. The team behind ‘The Walking Dead’ has reassured fans that the movies are still in full swing, multiple times now. Meaning that a post-credits scene would make perfect sense to segway into the movies somehow, or at least tease them.
From what we’ve heard, Rick Grimes will be in the middle of a “firefight” when we “catch up” with him… which isn’t too unusual.
We have also been told that Rick suffers a gunshot wound during this scene, or at least Andrew filmed this. This doesn’t mean anything fatal though, I’m sure Rick can take a bullet now and then… I mean he’s Rick Grimes for crying out loud!
I have literally no theories on how a “firefight” would entail during a post-credits scene. Although… I do have some theories on how a “firefight” could occur if Rick was to appear during one of the final episodes. However, I’ll keep my other theories to separate posts so I don’t bore you to death!
