Contains major spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 5.
It turns out that AMC's The Walking Dead has been going on for nearly a decade and, although the show may be nearing the end, The Walking Dead universe is lurching forward with a life of its own. Which answers the question to Sunday night's episode, titled "What Comes After", pretty clearly. Get a taste of what's to come in this new trailer for The Walking Dead's three-episode lead-up to "Evolution", the midseason-finale episode airing November 25 on AMC.
"I'm so f***ing far ahead of him that he could prank me 100 times, and I'd still be ahead", the actor told GameSpot and a small group of other outlets during a visit to the set of The Walking Dead.

We then flashed forward a few years to see a Rick's now preteen daughter Judith Grimes saving a totally different day. It's so great to see them back together for sure, but seeing the photo only makes us wonder how their scene will play out.
Fans of The Walking Dead have been left devastated after lead actor Andrew Lincoln appeared in his final episode. It would have been a fitting death for Rick, coupled with some badass last words, "I got 'em". Viewers were torn; while some wanted Rick to finally meet his end, others were happy that they would see more of him in the future. The first film will explore the story of where Rick is taken and what he faces in a new corner of the zombie apocalypse.
"It's a promise of more story, but I suppose cliffhangers in general are looked upon a certain way".
"Maybe it's the start of a bigger story", he concluded, teasing his future as the character.
"I want to know why we keep seeing helicopters flying around", said Lincoln. Can you talk a little bit about that and the new obstacles that the remaining members will be facing? "There is something exciting about moving toward an end game for Rick's story that appealed to me".
He will be starring in a series of original films from AMC Studios - the company behind The Walking Dead - which will continue the story of Grimes.
