(CNN)The following contains spoilers about the November 4 (fifth) episode of "The Walking Dead's" ninth season.

This Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead on AMC ("What Comes After") is far from the season finale, but it's the end of an era nonetheless: It'll be the last episode for Andrew Lincoln, who's played series lynchpin Rick Grimes since the show launched in 2010.

Warning: spoilers for tonight's episode of THE WALKING DEAD abound. For the longest time, it looks like Rick is done for.

Last season brought the culmination of "All Out War", which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. We're going to dig into the past and see old characters. Tonight, after his exit from the series proper, AMC announced that Andrew Lincoln had signed aboard for of a series of upcoming movies starring the character that will tell his story after being carted off via helicopter, mortally wounded. Because you're getting one, lead by none other than Rick Grimes himself. Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news about The Walking Dead.

"But I miss it terribly and I miss the relationships and I miss the people".

It was revealed in episode five - which was shown in the U.S. on Sunday and airs in the United Kingdom on Monday - Rick does survive.

Walking Dead director Rosemary Rodriguez shared a selfie of her and Lincoln on set.

The first film is expected to begin production as early as 2019, but unlike the series, the films will not be direct adaptations from The Walking Dead comics, written by Robert Kirkman, that the show is based on. "We're going to introduce new characters and new situations", says Gimple.

He added: "And I like the idea that we get to tell a bigger story, maybe with a sort of wider vista".

"But I'll just - it was the goodbye, the goodbye was incredible, you know, 'cause it's everybody that's worked with me for - alongside the show, you know, for nine years". "I know nothing! [Laughs.] There are lots of moving parts to this extraordinary franchise".
