The outgoing star has announced his intention to direct a future episode of the AMC zombie drama.

Earlier this year, in announcing his departure from The Walking Dead, star Andrew Lincoln stressed that his "relationship with Rick Grimes [was] far from over." It would appear the outgoing star of the AMC zombie drama is living up to his word, with an eye on a new role in the Walking Dead universe.

In a new interview, Lincoln states his intention to return to The Walking Dead, albeit in an unexpected capacity: as a director. The erstwhile Sheriff Grimes tells EW he intends to direct an episode of the AMC series "next year," a process he's beginning by returning to the show's Georgia shooting location to shadow a director.
