One of the cornerstones of ‘The Walking Dead‘ universe is that no one is safe and creator Robert Kirkman has opened up as to who will end up dead before the series comes to a close. This applies to both the television show on AMC and the ongoing comic from Image. This all came to light during a panel at Hawaii Comic Con when a young fan asked him who was safe.
Clearly no one as Kirkman didn’t lighten his response to the youngster. I wouldn’t call Kirkman quite as brutal as everyone’s favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ creator but he is slowly getting to that point. There are potentially huge spoilers below so if you want to not know who will end up dead you should turn back now.
Who can we expect to see die? Well according to Kirkman:
“Rick, Carl, Michonne. In the show, Daryl Dixon, eventually Abraham, Rosita. Rosita’s already dead in the comics. Jesus.”
Basically the entire cast of main characters in both the comic and series. That being said, there was no timeline given for any of them and it could all happen from old age though I wouldn’t hold my breath for that scenario. As many of the television characters he mentioned are already dead in the comics or don’t have a counterpart it wouldn’t surprise me seeing them go sooner than later. Of course, Shane lasted a lot longer than any of us had expected.
Which leading character from this list do you think will die next in the comics? How about on the TV show? Will Negan be finishing one of them off when the seventh season picks up? Share your thoughts below!
