5 Reasons to Watch "The Ones Who Live" for Every "Walking Dead" Fan

"The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live" is an apocalyptic drama, spinoff, and sequel to the parent show "The Walking Dead." It follows the journey of Rick Grimes and Michonne Hawthorne after their departure from the original series. This installment is the seventh in The Walking Dead Television Universe and has been airing on AMC since 2024.

All the fans of the original show were really waiting for this spinoff, because after Rick's disappearance "Walking Dead" lost a lot of its charm. We were afraid that the new show wouldn't come to our expectations, but still eager to see Rick and Michonne reunite. Also I personally thought that the creators could make their meeting just at the very end of the last series, which would be disappointing as well.

And actually I really liked the way all the events are presented and two main characters appear and interact! I even cannot forget their mutual scenes for several days. So I want to highlight why you should watch this spinoff and derive a lot of pleasure for it!

Let's count the reasons!

Reason 1 - Rick Grimes

The original show start with Rick getting out of coma and discovering the whole new world around him. He's portrayed as a former sheriff's deputy who becomes the leader of a group of survivors trying to navigate the dangers of the zombie apocalypse. Rick is known for his resourcefulness, determination, and often moral ambiguity as he grapples with the challenges of protecting his group and making difficult decisions in a world where the rules of society have collapsed. Throughout the series, Rick undergoes significant character development, evolving from a law enforcement officer trying to uphold order to a hardened survivor willing to do whatever it takes to ensure the safety of his people.
Here he is a bit different - less courageous, more hesitating and, of course, ages and events left a mark on him. But it is still Rick, which is so interesting to watch! He still makes extra ordinary decisions and find the ways out from the situations of no exits. That's what we love about him and that's what we missed. That's why you should meet him again one more time.

Reason 2 - Michonne

Michonne is another iconic character from "The Walking Dead" series. She's a skilled survivor who wields a katana and wears a cloak made of walker skin, which helps her move among the undead without being detected. Initially introduced as a mysterious loner, Michonne eventually becomes a valued member of Rick's group. She's portrayed as tough, resourceful, and fiercely independent, with a complex backstory that unfolds over the course of the series.
Michonne is known for her proficiency in combat, her unwavering loyalty to those she cares about, and her ability to adapt to the harsh realities of the post-apocalyptic world. But here she is not just a strong black woman, she is a woman in love. Still very strong, but so beautiful, feminine and optimistic! It seems that nothing can bend here, indeed.

So, her stamina and tough mind can be an example for you, especially if you are going through hard times. Just imagine, how Michonne would react! And again, meeting old friends are so pleasant, isn't it?

Reason 3 - Their Love

There are so many kisses, touches and talks, as if we are reading fanservice. But I, being a romantic woman, love this way of how series creators work now - they don't stop in the most interesting phase and don't let us imagine ourselves, they give the viewers exactly what they want! Perfect!
The relationship between Rick and Michone began in Alexandria and developed over time, starting from a deep friendship rooted in mutual respect and admiration. As they faced various challenges and dangers together, their bond grew stronger, eventually blossoming into a romantic connection. Their love was always characterized by loyalty, understanding, and support, despite the harsh realities of their post-apocalyptic world. Rick and Michonne found comfort and strength in each other time after time amidst the chaos, forming a partnership that was both emotional and strategic. And they till are.
So, if you believe in love, you must watch it.

Reason 4 - Settings and Effects

This spinoff is definitely worth watching because they spent a lot of money in it!All those scenes of battling, the structure of Civic Republic Military, the appearance of Walking Dead and just all the special effects used in the series is stunning.
Definitely, the visuals of the series is really great including everything we love about the post-apocaliptic universe of the original series.

Reason 5 - How it All Ended

Aren't you interested in how this long and epic saga ended? Did Rick finally meet Judith and his new son? Did he finally find peace?

We watched 11 seasons for about 14 years and now the show split into numerous spinoffs. To my mind, if we spend so much time on any story, we need to know how it ends to form the clear image. Don't we?
So, all in all, I think, if you are a true fan of "The Walking Dead", you should follow the story of Rick and Michonne becoming a couple again!
