The second Walking Dead spin-off series, The Walking Dead World Beyond, has closed out its series on a high note. Fans were delighted with the ending of the series, which left room for many of the character’s stories to continue. What projects are next for the main actors in this series?

World Beyond introduced us to a new group of people who had been kept safe behind walls since the beginning of the outbreak or, as they refer to it, “The night the sky fell.” This was a coming of age in the apocalypse series, with the first season focusing on introductions to the characters and their introduction to the world beyond the walls. Things got a lot more interesting in season two as they entered the research facility run by the Civic Republic Military.

It was discovered that things weren’t as they seemed, and the CRM has some pretty sketching ways of doing things. Luckily they were able to stop the planned attack on Portland, Oregon. The series ended with the main characters setting off on their own missions, which could mean we will see some of them in The Walking Dead movies or perhaps another spin-off series.
