Michonne, Rick and Glenn are later held in captivity by The Governor , a leader of a town called Woodbury who plan to take over the prison. Other Woodbury residents include Alice Warren, who changes sides to Rick's group and delivers Lori's baby, Bob Stookey , an army medic responsible for saving The Governor's life and Lilly , one of The Governor's soldiers. After the prison assault, the remaining group survivors regroup at Hershel's farm, and meet Abraham Ford , Eugene Porter and Rosita Espinosa.
Among the residents are Heath and Dr. Denise Cloyd, who quickly become close allies to the core group, and eventually the conflicted Nicholas. Douglas' son, Spencer tries to form a relationship with Andrea. Rick falls in love with Jessie Anderson, an abused wife.

Abraham forms a relationship with Holly, a member of the construction crew. A group of men, known as The Scavengers, tries to conquer Alexandria; the fight attracts a pack of walkers that invades the safe zone, leading to the death of a lot of Alexandrians. Later, the safe zone starts a trading network with the Hilltop Colony, with help from its scout Paul "Jesus" Monroe. However, their safety is again threatened by the psychopathic Negan and his group known as The Saviors who reside in a factory. One of the Saviors, Dwight becomes an ally with the communities.
After the war, newcomers such as Magna and Dante are introduced into the series. Another community out at sea is established, as well as safety perimeters across the DC area, which is violated by the presence of the Whisperers, a tribe of people disguised as the dead who have rejected the notion of re-establishing civilization. The leader, Alpha , antagonizes Rick as her daughter, Lydia , forms a sexual relationship with Carl. When Alpha's second in command, Beta, takes leadership of the group, he declares war against the communities.
The "zombie idea" developed by George Romero does not exist in The Walking Dead universe; hence, of all the myriad terms used to describe the undead by different communities, the word "zombie" has been deliberately avoided. While it has been used extremely rarely in the comics, it has never been used in the television adaptation.
Rick's group classifies the undead as either walkers, roamers or lurkers, the former being more likely to venture toward a loud noise in search of human prey. Other names have been used by characters in the series, including biters and stinkers. The undead follow and mimic each other, which can result in enormous hordes travelling together, "walking nonstop, following a sound they've all forgotten," as Abraham puts it. The series received critical acclaim, winning the Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series in  and prompting Eric Sunde of IGN comics to call it "one of the best monthly comics available".
AMC picked up the rights to produce a show based on the comic in The fifth season premiered on October 12, , with Scott M. Gimple as the show's third showrunner. Gimple has said that he would stay closer in line to the comic book series events "as much as possible", but ultimately remix stories with certain characters, referencing original characters introduced to the show and deceased characters alive in the comic book as a reason for this.
This also was accompanied by the largest deviation from the comics, with the departure of Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln , from the show, though Lincoln will reprise Rick in three feature-length films to be produced as AMC Originals that continue Rick's story with Kirkman's involvement. It explores these new characters as the apocalypse begins. The series was created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson , with Erickson serving as showrunner for the series. AMC ordered the series for a two-season commitment, with the first season consisting of six episodes.
AMC released an animated short of the first part of Issue No. Telltale Games , an adventure game developer, secured the rights with Kirkman to make a episodic video game inspired by The Walking Dead comic book series in Telltale's game, The Walking Dead , first released in , and followed the characters of Lee Everett , a former teacher convicted of murder, and Clementine , a pre-teen girl left alone at the start of the zombie apocalypse; it contained tie-ins with the comic by brief appearances of Glenn Rhee and Hershel Greene , narratively prior to their first appearances in the comic series.
The series was a critical success, with much of the praise for the characterization of Clementine and Lee, and is stated to have caused a resurgence in the waning adventure game market since In all but this spin-off, choices made by players in earlier games continued to set determinants used in later games as the stories followed Clementine's continued struggles to survive as she grows up in the years that followed.
In the midst of releasing the planned final season of The Walking Dead series during , Telltale Games went into bankruptcy, laying off the bulk of the staff and cancelling all projects, including the last two episodes of The Walking Dead.
Living With the Dead Series
By this point, Kirkman had established Skybound Entertainment and had been eyeing a gaming division. He took the opportunity to secure the rights of Telltale's The Walking Dead properties, and temporarily hired most of the staff that were working on the game so that the series could be finished as well as to close out Clementine's story, which he felt needed to be done. The miniatures game was funded through the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter.

We all remember the quest for little Sophia. But all along she was a zombie in the barn. Walkers killed her off screen and when she busted out of that barn, Rick shot her in the head. Karen must be toast 'cause she just got burnt She was fried to a crisp by Carol after succumbing to the flu. As leader of the Alexandrians, Deanna was pretty out of her element whenever the real world encroached on her settlements walls.
Naturally, once those walls fell, she took a bite to the belly while trying to protect Rick, but not before imparting some wisdom on Rick, Maggie, and, especially, Michonne that should push those characters into stronger leadership roles in the future. Deanna herself may not have mattered much, but her impact will be felt for seasons to come. Poor Bob. He was bitten by a walker and then captured by Gareth.
They removed his leg and ate it…but Bob still lived. As he slowly died, Tyreese made sure he wouldn't come back as a zombie. While attempting to save Carol and the rest of the prison group, T-Dog paid the ultimate price. RIP, we hardly knew you…despite your presence on the show for three seasons. Damnit, Carl! Dale and his fisherman's was attacked by a walker Carl had previously seen and provoked, but didn't kill.
That walker got to eat Dale's insides. Daryl took mercy on him and shot him in the head. Only on TWD is a shot in the head showing someone mercy. Here's why you don't kidnap, torture and kill any of Rick Grimes' people: he'll cut off your fingers and then stab you to death. For such a pivotal moment in the comics, the deaths at the hands of Alpha and the Whispers during the Alexandria fair on the TV show were Yes, these characters have ties to major players on the show, but not as major as the characters offed in the comic book source material.
Henry seems like he was created just to die. However, they represent how ruthless Alpha is. Merle was almost like a phoenix on The Walking Dead. Until he died. Viewers first met him in season one when he faced off with Rick, but he didn't die when they left him chained on a roof. Instead he lost his hand and joined up with the Governor.
Daryl eventually had to kill zombie Merle. Denise, we hardly knew ya. Merritt Wever 's character met an untimely end at the end of season six. Her exit is another in The Walking Dead 's troubling trend in killing off minorities. While many fans might not be sad to see him go, Gregory's death says a lot about where Maggie Lauren Cohan is going as the leader of the Hilltop. She's stretching her wings out from underneath Rick's leadership and finding her place.
The first of Negan's Jeffrey Dean Morgan big kills in the season seven premiere, Abraham's death was sadly overshadowed by Negan's next kill But still, it was a pretty significant loss for the group. He had the hair and the beard, but the TV version of Jesus never quite lived up to the comic book's version—something actor Tom Payne was well aware of and that was a factor in his acceptance of his fate.
Jesus was killed by the Whispers, the new villain group that wears skins of zombies to blend in with them. Had the show utilized Jesus the way the comics do, his death would be higher. However, the change from the comic source material is important. Did anyone have a cooler death than Sasha's sacrifice in the season seven finale when she tricked Negan into putting her in a coffin, took a poison pill and surprised the big bad when he opened the thing during his big performance outside of Alexandria's walls by having turned in the process?
She may not have taken Negan out, but she did give Rick and the gang a chance to get the upper hand, so she goes down a hero in our books. Arguably the show's first major death, Shane was killed by his former best friend Rick, who's wife he fell in love with post-zombie takeover, in an intense showdown, which disproved the saying don't bring a knife to a gun fight. And after coming back as a zombie, Shane was put down by Rick's young son, Carl. Rough twist, bro. That was hard to watch. Tyreese had been through so much and become such a protective and comforting presence in the group that it was especially hard to see him go after being bitten by Noah's Tyler James Williams walker brother on the arm.
Rick, Michonne, and Glenn had almost saved him, but it was too late, and Tyreese spent the episode hearing from all of his dead friends and enemies, including Beth and the Governor. Oh man. Just thinking of this is making us cry. Lizzie and her little sister were traveling with Carol, Tyreese, baby Judith and her sister Mika, but, well, Lizzie wasn't cut out for the zombie apocalypse. She believed the zombies were playing and weren't dangerous and dead. After killing her sister, Carol put her down.
Lizzie's death basically started a new era for Carol and her standing in the group. The father figure of the group survived longer than most people expected. He even lost a foot! But his neck was no match for the Governor and he was decapitated in front of all his friends.
Oh, Andrea. She was put in quite a pickle. After living in Woodbury and sleeping with the Governor, fans turned on you. But at least she died with some dignity. After being bitten by zombie Milton and then taking him out , Andrea shot herself in the head to prevent becoming a walker. Her death marked a major shift between the comic book series and the show. What a blow Beth's death was to everybody—the characters and the audience. After disappearing in season four, viewers finally got some Beth action in season five.
She was essentially captured in a hospital, despite escape attempts. But then her cavalry showed up! Rick and the gang were trading captured officers for Beth, but Dawn Lerner—the head cop—demanded Noah return to the hospital. He agreed, but Beth didn't.
The First Encounters
She stabbed Dawn in the neck with scissors and Dawn shot her in the head. After what felt like forever, the Governor finally met his maker at the hands of Michonne…and Lilly! Michonne stabbed him in the chest and leaves him to dies in agony, but Lilly came along and shot him in the head. Lori, Lori, Lori. The bane of existence for some Walking Dead fans, Carl's ma and Rick's betrothed met her maker after giving birth to baby Judith.
When walkers attacked, Lori went into labor, but began losing too much blood and determined it was either her or the baby so she had Maggie perform a C-section on her, knowing her end was near. Lori died after the birth, but Carl put the final nail in the coffin: a bullet through her head so she didn't reanimate.
While Carl's demise in season eight certainly qualifies as one of the show's most surprising deaths, considering how far they show has strayed from the comics where he's still alive, the whole thing felt just a bit cheap. After sustaining a walker bite while trying to rescue newcomer Siddiq, Carl's death became nothing more than a plot device to encourage Rick to find a way towards peace with Negan and the Saviors. To say it was a disservice to one of the show's longest-running characters and actors, as well would be putting it lightly.
