Set years after Rick's departure from the main show, the upcoming spinoff continues their stories.

In a previous episode, Michonne finds a phone with Rick's writing on it, along with Japanese characters.
Fans have deciphered the Japanese phrase to mean "believe a little longer," which is confirmed by showrunner Angela Kang. The trailer reveals that the phrase symbolizes Rick's hope of reuniting with his family. This theme of belief and determination drives the narrative of the spinoff, as Rick and Michonne strive to find each other. The inclusion of Rick's phone in the trailer hints at the journey that lies ahead for the beloved characters.
