Comic-Con 2013 – ‘Walking Dead’ Panel Teases Possible Michonne/Rick Romance Next Season

Comic-Con 2013 - 'Walking Dead' Panel Teases Possible Michonne/Rick Romance Next Season

Audience members had romance on their minds — a Michonne/Rick pairing was proposed, to which Kirkman said, “Anything is possible.” Reedus piggybacked off the idea, explaining that — because of the shared pain of losing someone — Michonne and Daryl might make a nice pair. “Everyone’s losing people left and right, but both those characters are sort of loner characters who are learning to deal with a group and be part of a group, and I think it’ll just bring us closer together.”

Well, nothing’s definite, and we’ll just have to wait and see if it actually happens when the 4th season of The Walking Dead debuts on October 13 at 9pm.

The above write-up is courtesy of ComicBookResources, who were present for the Walking Dead Comic-Con panel in San Diego over the weekend, where cast and crew were present.

What can I say, except this should be an interesting season for the series, if only because we really have no idea what direction the various narratives are going to take, after all that transpired last season. 

There’ll be 4 black series regulars this time around (Lawrence Gilliard Jr. joins the cast, playing a character named Bob Stookey), so it’s only natural that at least one of them has to die… or maybe not. Maybe we’ll be surprised this season!

As for whether there’ll be a Michonne/Rick romance, I don’t see AMC, the show’s producers and cast being so bold as to give a major plotline like that away in a pre-season panel discussion, but they certainly didn’t shut the door on the idea. 

No matter, it is enough fodder to get fans talking…

4th season of The Walking Dead will debut on October 13 at 9pm. It’ll be a 16-episode season, divided into 2 halves

If you missed the 4 1/2-minute trailer yesterday, here it is again:

Danai and Norman share a trailer no wonder he wants the two of them together on the show. He's got a thang for Danai.


I don't think Rick is worthy of Michonne's bad ass-ness. I really can't see her with him. I know she eventually hooks up with Tyreese in the comics, but we'll see if that translates to the show. Pairing her with Daryl would be interesting, but again, that seems like a stretch. Besides, Daryl and Carol have yet to make it happen. And by the way, I must say the show is way better than the comic. I don't know why people were so gung-ho about the books.


I always felt Michonne belonged with Rick. They just seemed destined. At least in the graphic novel. Shocked when Rick got with Andrea. Ugh! No! Not!

But on television, Andrea's no longer a factor. Michonne definitely belongs with a strong man so either Rick, Daryl, or Tyreese. Not Morgan! I never felt that, never understood that in the graphic novel.


Norman Reedus wants Daryl and Michonne together because he has been sniffing behind Danai for over a year in real life. I see you Norman.
