Andrew Lincoln left "The Walking Dead" on Sunday night after eight and a half years on the AMC show, but his time playing Rick Grimes is hardly over. "Right now, we're working on three but there's flexibility in that", Gimple said.
He said: "These films are going to be big evolutions of what we've been doing on the show, with the scope and scale of features".
"We believe this is a world and narrative with many possibilities and opportunities for character development and we're excited to expand the series into a franchise that can live across multiple formats", said David Madden, president of original programming for AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "We're going to introduce new characters and new situations".
Production on the movies is expected to begin as early as 2019. Will the Walking Dead films be shot overseas in the Queen's land, or will Lincoln have to eat his words and head back to the United States - namely Georgia, where the series is filmed - for the trio of projects? The Walking Dead airs Sundays on AMC at 9 PM.

A new corner of the zombie apocalypse for Rick?
Instead, he was picked up by Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) in the helicopter that was first introduced on the show about a year ago.
His final episode - season nine, episode five - aired in the USA on Sunday and opened moments after the previous installment had finished, with Lincoln on the brink of death. Then, the stories will explore the years after that, each telling "a complete story" about the former sheriff. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group. "I want to know why we keep seeing helicopters flying around". "So somewhere across the world, because of the climate, walkers might look very different". His story is only just beginning. AMC stresses that while Grimes will not return to the television series, his story will continue to be told in the movies. "There's a lot of people that are still there, who were there on the first day, and that's an immensely moving testament to the show, really".
