Carol Peletier is one of The Walking Dead’s most beloved character but does she die throughout the show’s run?
To say that Carol Peletier is one of the best examples of character development in TV history still wouldn’t be enough to do her justice.
One of The Walking Dead‘s longest-standing characters, Carol has been portrayed by the wonderful Melissa McBride since her debut in the very first season, and she has grown into a powerful, strong and downright badass protagonist of the show.
From her endearing friendship with Daryl and connection with Ezekiel to her absolute fearlessness when it comes to confronting the horrifying evils of the world around her, Carol has been through a lot during her time on the show, but does that time ever run out?
The Walking Dead has run for 11 seasons, and throughout that run, a lot of characters have been killed off. If you’ve just started watching the show, you might want to know if Carol is one of them.
Does Carol survive in The Walking Dead?
We said that Carol is one of the longest-standing characters on The Walking Dead, and we’re happy to tell you that this is down to the fact that she does indeed survive every threat that comes her way, making it all the way to the show’s final season. She, along with Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), are the last of the original characters left on the show.
With season 11 also being the final season, there is an understandable concern that Carol may not make it out of the TWD series finale alive, especially as Melissa McBride is no longer attached to the previously-announced Daryl and Carol spin-off show – which is now just a Daryl spinoff.
That being said, the producers know how popular Carol is to the TWD Universe fans, and their eagerness to work with McBride again in the future does bode well for Carol’s chances of surviving The Walking Dead‘s series finale. Moreover, McBride herself told Entertainment Weekly that she thinks “Carol has more story to tell”.
Let’s hope that we get to see that story play out on screens in the future!
