During the last episodes of The Walking Dead season 3, Rick and Michonne have become each other’s companion while slaying zombies and hunting for supplies. From that point forward, fans have noticed and admired the chemistry between the new pair.
But will their new found friendship develop into something more on the upcoming fourth season?
Showrunner Robert Kirkman has addressed the matter with TV Line, read on for the spoilers:
Series creator Robert Kirkman says he “wouldn’t necessarily rule a romance out,” but he reminds us that Rick’s “wife did just die in a horrible way, so I don’t think any kind of romance is really on his radar just yet.” Kirkman does, however, concede that the two are growing closer. “They are definitely forming a friendship,” he acknowledges. “They have a very large mutual respect for each other because of their capabilities and their ability to trust one another, and I think that’s a lot of what was growing in the [Season 3] episode where they both went off on a run together.”
