The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live
Returning as the beloved characters Rick Grimes and Michonne in the upcoming Walking Dead Universe series, stars Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira are set to captivate audiences in The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. This series unfolds an epic love story between two characters profoundly affected by a transformed world, kept apart by distance and an unstoppable force. In a situation unlike any they’ve ever encountered, the narrative explores whether they can reunite and rediscover their true selves. Joining the cast are Pollyanna McIntosh, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Terry O’Quinn, and Matthew August Jeffers.
Initially dubbed The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne in April 2023, the series underwent a title change in July of the same year. It adopted a new name, The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, a choice that aligns more closely with the repeated utterances of the phrase by Rick himself during his on-screen presence. Rick’s monologue brought on the saying, which was repeated by other characters in The Walking Dead’s original series. It goes as follows:
“You still don’t get it. None of you do! We know what needs to be done and we do it. We’re the ones who live. You, you just sit and plan and hesitate. You pretend like you know when you don’t. You wish things weren’t what they are. Well, you want to live? You want this place to stay standing? Your way of doing things is done. Things don’t get better because you– you want them to. Starting right now, we have to live in the real world. We have to control who lives here.”
Mark your calendars, as The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live is set to premiere on AMC/AMC+ on February 25th.
