LINCOLN, GURIRA REUNITE ON WALKING DEAD SPIN-OFF

AMC Networks has announced that Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira will reunite for a new series in the expanding universe around The Walking Dead.

The series will continue the journey and love story of the Rick Grimes and Michonne characters. Lincoln and Gurira, who have been actively involved in conceiving the creative and the continuation of their characters' story, made the surprise announcement while appearing onstage as part of the final panel for The Walking Dead at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Scott M. Gimple, Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead Universe, will serve as showrunner on the series, which will begin with six episodes in 2023. Lincoln and Gurira are both executive producers.

"This is a moment fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting for since Rick disappeared in the helicopter early in season nine, and Michonne journeyed away on a quest to find him the following season," said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. "What a great surprise for the fans at this final Comic-Con for the series that launched this universe and made television history. We couldn't be more excited for a truly epic series finale later this year and to see Andy and Danai return in a new series they helped create, one of three new series coming in 2023 that continue the stories of so many iconic and fan-favorite TWD characters."

"Rick and Michonne are two of my favorite people and Danai and Andy are two of my favorite people." Gimple said. "Working with all of them continues to be a dream come true. The three of us, along with a terrific team of TWD all stars and incredible new voices, are crafting an insane love epic worth the long, long wait."

"This has been the most extraordinary journey playing Rick Grimes for the best part of a decade," Lincoln said. "The friendships I've made along the way are deep and lasting, so it's fitting that I finally get to complete the story with Danai and Scott and the rest of the TWD family. I'm so excited to be returning to the screen as Rick, reuniting with Danai as Michonne, and bringing the fans an epic love story to add to the Walking Dead Universe.

Said Gurira: "Michonne and this TWD family has meant so much to me, and to continue the journey of these beloved characters, alongside Scott and Andy, both creatively and in front of the camera, and bringing The Walking Dead fans something truly special is just glorious. I can't wait to pick up the katana again."

Here's how the new show is described:

"This series presents an epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world. Kept apart by distance. By an unstoppable power. By the ghosts of who they were. Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built on a war against the dead...And ultimately, a war against the living. Can they find each other and who they were in a place and situation unlike any they've ever known before? Are they enemies? Lovers? Victims? Victors? Without each other, are they even alive -- or will they find that they, too, are the Walking Dead?"



MARVEL'S X-TREME X-MEN RETURNS

Marvel Comics has announced that writer Chris Claremont will reunite with artist Salvador Larroca for a five-issue X-Treme X-Men limited series starting in November.

The new series will take place place directly after the final issue of X-Treme X-Men with a story arc that promises to have wide-reaching implications for some X-characters.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"A powerful psychic attack on Kitty Pryde from her old enemy Ogun brings the X-Treme team back together for a high-stakes mission, but what secret is Ogun hiding, and will even the combined might of Bishop, Sage, Gambit, Rogue, Rachel Summers, Storm and Wolverine be enough to stop his insidious plan?"

"I'm very happy to be teaming up with Chris again to bring back the adventures of the X-Treme X-Men," Larroca said. "It's been a long time and I've missed this team and this book that I consider a child of mine. I hope fans enjoy what we're doing with this new run -- there's lots of new histories to tell. This is the book that Chris Claremont fans have been waiting for and I'm proud to once again illustrate his awesome plots. Let's make this an instant classic!"

Marvel will also launch an X-Treme Marvel Variant Covers program, timed to coincide with the new title's beginning.

The first issue shiops on Nov. 30.
