Maggie Rhee is one of the most pivotal characters in The Walking Dead but does she manage to survive the AMC series right through to the end?

When we first met Maggie Greene in season 2 of The Walking Dead, we couldn’t have imagined how crucial she would become to the show. It’s certainly not the first time that a character introduced outside of the first season has had a pivotal role to play in a series, but as we had come to learn with The Walking Dead, nobody on the show was safe, so characters’ runs were often short-lived.

Nevertheless, Hershel’s beloved daughter ended up becoming one of the show’s most important characters, with her relationships with sister Beth and boyfriend Glenn Rhee evolving into central points of the show. She would then go on to become the leader of Hilltop and an all-round badass – but let’s face it, she was already both of those things.

TWD‘s run is complete now after 11 seasons. If you haven’t been keeping up with it or you just can’t wait to get to the end of your binge-watch, here’s what happens to Maggie.

Does Maggie die in The Walking Dead season 11?

If you’re a Maggie fan, you can rest easy knowing that she doesn’t die throughout the show’s run. The character was written out in the midst of season 9 when Lauren Cohan left the show, as Maggie went to find other communities like Hilltop. However, she returned at the end of season 10 to help her friends defeat The Whisperers, and once again became a regular part of the show for its eleventh and final season.

Maggie also survives the war with the Commonwealth, becoming uneasy allies with the man who killed her beloved Glenn: Negan. While she acknowledges that he has changed in the series finale, she also acknowledges that she will never be able to forgive him for what he did. And that dynamic will continue to play an important part in the TWD Universe as both characters will headline spinoff The Walking Dead: Dead City when they head to New York City.

So there you have it, not only does Maggie survive The Walking Dead, she will continue to be a key part of the universe as it heads into its new era, leading one of the four spinoffs.
