The Walking Dead: Robert Kirkman Confirms Two Characters Who Live to the End of Series
Published on November 7th, 2021 | Updated on November 7th, 2021 | By FanFest
The Walking Dead has been one of the biggest sensations television has ever seen. With its skyrocketing viewership numbers and rabid fan base, The Walking Dead has developed a relationship with its fans that continued to kill off its favorite characters, over and over again. Now that the show has announced that it will be ending with Season 11 and that there are several spinoffs in the works, the future of your favorite major characters hang in the balance.
The show’s creator, Robert Kirkman, recently sat down with Hey Fandom! for an “ask me anything” (AMA) and answered fans’ questions about a number of topics. However, he was very clear on the fate of two of the show’s beloved characters.
Kirkman discussed the fates of Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Eugene (Josh McDermitt).
(Comics Spoiler) In the Walking Dead comics, both Michonne and Eugene live to an old age, with Michonne becoming a judge for The Commonwealth and Eugene leading up the creation of a railroad.
During the AMA with Hey Fandom!, Kirkman explained, “I will say that there’s a lot of implied story in the final issue, with the railroad meeting, and the colony to the West uniting with the colony to the East.”
Kirkman continued, “There’s some general thoughts and notions that I have for that.” He continued, “If the television show ever gets to that point in the comic book series, and we decide to continue past that point I’m kind of excited about the idea of telling a little bit more with older Eugene and Judge Michonne and the different things that were in the comic series that could have gone on, and we could have done more with.”
Fans learned more about Season 11 of The Walking Dead in the season finale episode. There was a brief introduction to The Commonwealth with Eugene and company being surrounded by soldiers. But first up, we are getting six more bonus episodes for Season 10 that will explore where Maggie has been and take a deep dive into individual characters. The style of these episodes are going to be unique due to filming during the pandemic. Expect to see episodes that follow one to two characters at a time.

Still as exciting as the first series. Also love fear the walking dead epic all rounders.
I hope they have judith Grimes on there I just love her and her relationship with Daryl and Negan.
I don’t like the idea, Michonne and Eugene your kidding right? What about Daryl and Negan, maybe RICK will come back and live to an old age that would be a better idea and make everybody happy with his daughter and son.
Love it and not too far ahead. What about Rick, are we going to find out what happened to him.
Daryl needs to live , they became good friends with Rick.
But why doesn’t Daryl Carol make it
It’s cool eugene lives .but what about Daryl an Carol. They rock michonne in the other hand.she has gotten to blahh.
How could it not be Daryl? If anyone is going to survive until the end, it would be Daryl. And Carol is a good partner for Daryl.
I would like to see Carl back. He had lots of potential for storylines that were snuffed out with him dead. I don’t know how he could be brought back, but perhaps during the jump they did, he could be alive and older, to take a new direction for the group to follow. No flames please.
I’m done watching it we wanted Daryll and Carol and judith to live this show is a mess up
Should Be Daryl and Judith
It should time jump to Judith being a teen, and her and Daryl have a spinoff journey,Judith is my fav
I know,I agree why them 2
Rick & Daryl must survive or else the whole series was a waste of my time
I would be interested in Daryl and maybe Eugene or Carol. My 3 favorites!
I agree with you Beverly. I thought they said the 2 shows were going to meet together for a couple of episodes.
You mean the new one The World Beyond?
That’s stupid! Don’t get me wrong, I love those two. I want Daryl and Carol… stop killing the one’s we love. As a matter of a fact, Rick comes back, meets his son and daughter a little bit older… and stop the fighting. They are tired, dehydrated, and you don’t give them a chance to recover!! Who the hell they gonna fight next? The Government? ♀️
To see main character die is rough and maybe when more then one died at the same time was over doing it. But if it was real that would probably happen. I think it would be cool if they start a spinoff from the flagship series season one with new cast maybe a kings county firefighter thats seen alot before the dead and crew going a different path but have some cameos from Rick and others.
