Few TV double acts can hold a candle to Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon of The Walking Dead.
Together, they’ve slaughtered scores upon scores of the undead and helped propel AMC’s apocalyptic saga to dizzying new heights, so it was with a heavy heart when we reported that Rick’s time on the series was coming to an end, as both Andrew Lincoln and the Powers That Be prepared for something new.

Up next for the core saga is season 10 this October, before Rick’s story expands onto the big screen sometime next year. And isn’t that exciting? The question, really, is whether he’ll be joined by Daryl…
