The Ones Who Live Season 2: Several clues hint at a sequel to ‘The Walking Dead’ series

The Walking Dead universe continues to grow. The Ones Who Live season 2 could become an essential part of it. At least that's what the series creator is suggesting.

A new chapter has begun in the TWDU with “Dead City” and “Daryl Dixon“. And the end is not yet in sight, as both spin-offs have already been renewed for a second season early on. “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live” could also follow this example, as the series has already broken several records. There are also several signs pointing to a sequel.

The Ones Who Live Season 2 Possible: This is just the beginning

Originally, Rick was supposed to return in three movies. This idea eventually gave way to the six-part spin-off “The Ones Who Live“, which was actually planned as a mini-series. However, this project now also seems to be making way for a new idea, as the spin-off could have much more than just six episodes up its sleeve. This is also indicated by “The Walking Dead” director Scott M. Gimple (via Deadline):

“Anything is possible — even if Rick dies in the last episode, anything is possible, We’re focused on this one right now. But this one came together in a really amazing way, where there were all sorts of plans. And then the world changed and we altered those plans.”

In the official trailer for “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live”, we hear Rick say: “It’s the end… and a start”. This quote is another clue that season 2 could already be in the pipeline. After six and four years of abstinence respectively, Richonne finally returns to the screens to find each other – ending a dry spell full of questions for fans. At the same time, it also marks the beginning of a new story for the two lovers. As Variety emphasizes in an initial review, the plot of the first season definitely calls for a sequel.

It should also be noted that “The Ones Who Live” was not announced as a grand finale for Rick and Michonne. However, if Scott M. Gimple and US broadcaster AMC had intended to conclude the story in six episodes, this would probably have been the case. Instead, the advertising drum has only produced terms such as “comeback” and “Rick’s return”. Accordingly, it should be clear that those responsible still have a lot planned for the latest spin-off.

The demand for season 2: “The Ones Who Live” breaks TV record

Both “Dead City” and “Daryl Dixon” have officially been given the green light for a second season. Daryl will even continue with new episodes this summer. No wonder: both series have broken AMC records – but have now been surpassed by “The Ones Who Live”. The Rick Grimes series has given AMC a new TV record. So it would only make more than sense to continue this success with Season 2.

The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live Season 2: When will the sequel start?

First things first: Even though there are many indications, “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live” season 2 has not yet been officially confirmed. Those responsible will presumably first wait and see how audiences receive the Rick Grimes series – and whether the budget of 82.75 million US dollars can be recouped.

The season finale is therefore scheduled for April 1. If AMC gives the green light for the sequel during this period, we could possibly expect new episodes as early as 2025. At the moment, however, this is merely speculation.

The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live Season 2: What’s next and who’s in it?

Since we won’t find out how the first season of “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live” ends until April 1, 2024, it is not yet possible to theorize about a possible season 2 plot. However, we assume that Rick and Michonne – unlike the quote above – will not die in the series. Instead, we assume that they will have to find their way back to their family and allies after their reunion. Since their children Judith (Cailey Fleming) and RJ (Antony Azor) – who Rick hasn’t even met yet, by the way – only relocated to the Commonwealth after Michonne’s trip, this is likely to involve plenty of panic and hardship. After all, Rick and Michonne neither know where the Commonwealth is nor that it even exists.

It can also be assumed that the Civic Republic Military (CRM) will not simply let them go. Season 2 could therefore be accompanied by a wild chase that forces Rick and Michonne to stay away from their loved ones so as not to put the communities in danger. There could also be a decisive battle in which several towns and communities unite against the CRM to put an end to their power-hungry plan for domination once and for all.

As you can see, even without Robert Kirkman’s comics, on which the main series is based, there would be enough ideas for far more than just another season of “The Ones Who Live”. As Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira play the leading characters in the series, it can be assumed that the main actors would remain with us (for the time being). A reunion with Cailey Fleming and Antony Azor is not only possible, but actually a must. However, this has of course not yet been confirmed.

Basically, we should get used to the idea that some characters from “The Ones Who Live” will die before season 2.
