The Walking Dead finished on November 20, 2022, but we have already been blessed with smash hit spin-offs, Dead City and Daryl Dixon. TWD treated us to many memorable moments as the gang of survivors attempted to find a safe haven and create a better world. They were forced to battle the undead and battle the living, with the show giving us memorable villains throughout the 11 seasons. The next spin-off will be the highly anticipated “The Ones Who Live,” starring Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira). LWOS Life decided to bring you everything we know so far, about this spin-off.
