The Walking Dead and Rick Grimes’ final episode is coming up soon for AMC. As shown in the previews and sneak peeks for the upcoming episode, Rick is going to be in the middle of a lot of danger.
The good news, though, is that it isn’t the final episode that will star lead actor Andrew Lincoln. It does set the stage for what’s to come, though.
The Walking Dead: Rick Grimes final episode (spoilers)
The penultimate episode for the character will take place on Sunday, October 28. A recap of the episode, chock full of spoilers, is already available here. The ending is a cliffhanger, though, setting the stage for the final episode of Rick Grimes to air on Sunday, November 4. This is when the fate of Rick will be revealed.

The Walking Dead show time
The Walking Dead will air in the normal 9/8c time slot next week. However, AMC will continue showing older episodes from Season 9 before the November 4 installment of the show. It’s an important episode, so there is going to be a lot of promotion throughout the week.
It’s easy to call this an event when speaking about a moment in television history. The Walking Dead has been one of the most successful cable shows in history, setting quite a few ratings marks over the years.
Season 9 has been a ratings disappointment as numbers continue to dwindle. The expectation is that when AMC shows the final Andrew Lincoln episode of The Walking Dead, that the numbers will go up again, at least for that night.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.
