The Walking Dead season 10 is taking a break following the coronavirus pandemic and the final episode will be shown on AMC later this year. Fans who have read the comic books know there is still so much more to come, and they are already thinking about what may happen in season 11. There have been hints that the survivors may find clues as to the whereabouts of Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) in the new series.
Will the survivors find Rick Grimes in a new series?
Main character Rick Grimes made a shock exit from the series in season nine, when he sacrificed himself for the rest of the group.
He was last seen on a bridge, shooting at some dynamite in order to blow the bridge up and prevent a group of walkers from crossing.
Fans last saw him being rescued by Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and the pair were carried off in the mysterious helicopter.
AMC later announced a series of Rick Grimes films would be released, and they would reveal more about what happened to Rick after he was taken away.
But fans have spotted an article which suggests he may make an appearance in some form or another in a new series of The Walking Dead.

We Got This Covered shared some information about the upcoming Rick Grimes films, saying sources close to the publication revealed Rick has been taken to a human encampment, where a cure for the virus is being sought.
Supposedly the scientists trying to find a cure will have a “mad side that includes experimenting on unwilling human subjects.”
The article said: “Furthermore, it’s said that something will happen in season 11 that leads to a number of characters heading out to go rescue Rick and help him escape from where he’s being held.”
Fans are wondering whether this means Rick will feature in season 11, whether it be through flashbacks or in person.
Lovejoy812 said on Reddit: “From a very quick read through it seems like a possibility rick could return in a later season.”
Before he left the series Rick Grimes left some clues for his survivor friends to find, including Michonne (Danai Gurira).
She later left the series in season 10, vowing to young Judith (Cailey Fleming) she would find Rick safe and well.
Fans have turned to the comic books to discover what happens to Rick following his departure from the series, and they think he could end up at The Commonwealth.
In the comic books, the Commonwealth is a new community which is known for including about 50,000 survivors.
Eugene (Josh McDermitt) sets out to find the community, and it is possible he comes across it in the new series.

With this in mind, there may be some sort of crossover with the Rick Grimes films, but fans can only hope.
Lincoln, who plays Rick, had said he had planned to leave the series even earlier as he wanted to spend time with his family.
He was originally due to leave in season eight, but the actor had a change of heart and decided to stay for another season.
Lincoln told Entertainment Weekly: “Season eight came and it got more complicated. I realized that rather than have the funeral, I had to prepare for the funeral and I had to make sure everybody was comfortable with the funeral arrangements.
“And I don’t think I was ready for the funeral! You know what I mean? I was like, I don’t think I’m ready to go yet.”

Showrunner Angela Kang also spoke to Deadline about whether he would return for the current series.
She said: “Not this season man, but I would love it if he did. You know we were talking about having him direct something for a while, but then he wanted to focus on some acting stuff.
“He didn’t want to drop out on us at the last minute if something came along, and you know he’s been doing a movie lately.”
Lincoln had said he wanted to return to the series to help direct, but he is currently living in London with his two young children.
