THE WALKING DEAD: THE ONES WHO LIVE Teaser Trailer Brings Rick Grimes and Michonne Back

It has been nearly five years since we saw Rick Grimes and Michonne together onscreen. Their great apocalypse love story took a tragic turn in The Walking Dead season 9 when Rick “sacrificed” himself on that bridge. Of course, we knew that Rick didn’t die. Jadis found him and took him on one of those CRM helicopters. But, poor Michonne thought her man was dead for many years until her big discovery at Bloodsworth Island led her to look for him. We saw a glimpse of their separate predicaments in The Walking Dead’s final episode.

Thankfully, we are finally going to get a sweet reunion between this pair in The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, which is the official title for the Rick and Michonne spinoff series. At this year’s SDCC, fans got a teaser trailer for The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live showing Rick and Michonne in action. 

Michonne looks incredible in this clip, as she speaks about losing someone years ago and finding out that he’s alive. We also see Rick doing one of the things he does best: killing walkers. Do we learn anything? Not at all. Does it matter? Nope. It is just exciting to get a teaser trailer with Rick and Michonne back in action again.

The Meaning Behind the Rick & Michonne Series’ Official Title

The Ones Who Live is also a perfect title for this series. Rick originally said that line in reference to his original group in The Walking Dead’s fifth season. He told Deanna, who led Alexandria, that his group knew what to do because they knew how to survive this harsh world. And, in the show’s final episode, we hear many of the characters utter that line, including Rick and Michonne. Through all the villains, death, and despair, they are still alive and their love lives on.

What Is The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live‘s Release Date? 

We still don’t know exactly when The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live will hit AMC. It is coming sometime in 2024, which feels both close and still too far away. Either way, Rick Grimes and Michonne are back and that sparks so much joy.
