The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live what season 2 could look like

AMC hasn't confirmed a second season of the Rick and Michonne spinoff, The Ones Who Live, but fans are hopeful.

The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live is a six-part series in which Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira reprise their roles as Rick and Michonne, who were introduced in the main series. The series did a fantastic job of giving the couple a happily ever after—or as close to it as a post-apocalyptic world can get. While many were satisfied with the conclusion of Rick and Michonne's story, many viewers wanted more. What would a second season of TOWL look like?

At the end of The Ones Who Live finale, Rick and Michonne were reunited with their children Judith (Cailey Fleming) and RJ (Antony Azor). This was everything fans longed for. Rick finally met his son and reunited with Judith, who he hadn't seen in over eight years. It was a beautiful site.

Rick and Michonne's story has been concluded, but a second season of The Ones Who Live could pay tribute to this powerhouse couple by allowing Judith and RJ to become the future and carry on their parents' legacy.

The Ones Who Live season 2

Picture this: Judith and RJ, and the other children of the communities, are adults with spouses and children of their own. The undead are no longer as big of a threat as the CRC (Civic Republic Council) made good on their promises to allow people in and out of the community and have truly made the world a better place. It kind of sounds like their brother Carl's ending in the comics, minus the CRC.

But there are always fractions of bad people who the Grimes children would come against. Or possibly and underground CRM group who have been waiting to take over the Civic Republic. I think it is an outstanding way to carry on the Grimes family legacy while giving fans more of what they want. Perhaps Rick and Michnne can make cameo apppearances.

The adult version of the children was actually filmed as an ending to the main series which was never used.

"“After Daryl rode off, we cut forward to the Freedom Parkway, outside Atlanta — where the iconic shot of Rick rode down from the pilot. See an ethanol-modified van, with a young woman and man in the front seats (in their twenties). And through the scene, we come to realize it's adult RJ and Judith. Other adult versions of the kids are in the back — Coco, Gracie, etc. They're out there, looking to escort any survivors back to their communities. Continuing the legacy of their parents. As RJ speaks over the radio, he finishes with: "If you can hear me, answer back. This is Rick Grimes." (Which, of course, is his name — and the line Rick said in the pilot.) Then we end with the voice of a survivor answering back: "...Hello?""

Only time will tell if The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live willl continue or perhaps more stories of the Grimes family will be told in a new series.
