When it comes to this series of movies that Rick will headline, there is a pretty big question that needs answering. Where is Rick going? The short answer is that we have no earthly idea. There is obviously no clear analog in the comics to Rick being whisked away on a helicopter by Jadis. Still, we can certainly speculate.
It’s possible that Rick is en route to a place called the Commonwealth. In the comic book series, the Commonwealth is a new community that is notable for its sheer size. The combined forces of Alexandria, the Hilltop, the Kingdom, the Sanctuary, and Oceanside amount to hundreds or perhaps even thousands of people. The Commonwealth has around 50,000 people.
The Commonwealth is located in Ohio and Eugene discovers it when fooling around with a repaired radio and getting in contact with someone named Stephanie. The show has already introduced this plotline (though the Stephanie’s community is near Charleston, West Virginia). In the comics, Stephanie invites Eugene to come visit the Commonwealth, and at Rick’s direction, Eugene leads a squad consisting of Michonne, Magna, Yumiko, and Siddiq out to meet the new community. What they eventually discover is astonishing.
The Commonwealth has more or less rebuilt things to the way they were before the apocalypse. People live comfortably and even have a stadium to occasionally watch live sporting events. The community’s governor, Pamela Milton, dresses and behaves like a standard politician. Michonne decides to stay behind in the Commonwealth to serve as a lawyer while Eugene and company escort Pamela back to meet Rick.
Given that Eugene has set all of this in motion on the show, it now seems unlikely that a Rick Grimes movie would cover The Commonwealth. The Commonwealth is almost undoubtedly earmarked for season 11 of the show. There’s a chance that The Walking Dead season 11 crosses over heavily with the Rick Grimes series of films, but that is probably a logistical nightmare, given Lincoln’s desire to remain near home.
