Walking Dead Season 6 Portrait Casts Carol as One Tough Cookie

Be smarter than an Alexandrian — don’t be fooled by Carol’s happy homemaker sweater.

Instead, look closer at Melissa McBride’s official portrait for Season 6 of The Walking Dead and note her steely “Yeah, I mean business” gaze — and the lethal weapon that asks, “Now do ya believe me?”

Clearly, the character’s transformation into a total badass is complete. But where does she go from here?

Hit the comments with your hopes — and fears — for Carol when the AMC series returns on Oct. 11 (at 9/8c).

    Carol’s character development over the last 5 seasons has been my favorite thing about the show. They better not kill her off!

    • jake86 says:

      If they insist on keeping Daryl around, who’s development stopped after Season 3, there’s no logical reason for why they shouldn’t keep a much more genuinely complex/interesting character like Carol around. Fair is fair, right?

      • Vancouver says:

        Couldn’t have said it better, Jake. Carol has become an incredibly compelling, unique character with a ton of story to offer. She’s definitely worthy of being kept around for a long, long time!

      • Mikey says:

        Daryl doesn’t need any more developing. He’s already perfectly adapted to the “new normal” of the TWD world. The character isn’t just a delight to watch and root for– he’s also a dependable yardstick by which the other characters’ adaptations to the reality of their world can be measured. I think he’s an essential part of the cast at this point and I wouldn’t enjoy the show nearly as much without him.

      • Lucifer says:

        You must have either stopped watching or don’t pay attention because they give plenty of development to Daryl. It’s just not in-your-face or drastic like Carol’s development has been.

    Nice! And I just started rewatching The Walking Dead with a friend who hasn’t seen it, but it’s hard not to spoil how badass Carol gets/we see her character grow.

    • Joe says:

      Same here, I had to bite my tounge every time she was on screen during seasons 1 and 2 when I watched the show with a friend who had never seen it. I wanted to fist pump every time she appeared which would have given away that she becomes a badass.
      She’s easily,the best written character on the show and Melissa McBride one of the strongest actors.

    • Spence says:

      Same here!! My friend just started watching, and she barely knows who Carol is as of now. It’s so funny to know that in a few seasons she quickly becomes on par with Rick and Daryl in terms of importance.

      • Homesick says:

        And to think Carol started out as the woman that washed Rick’s clothes on Shane’s camp. Little did they know back then. I can’t wait to see where she goes from here.

    Carol’s my favourite character! If she dies, I’m done!

  4. dancmh says:

    I don’t know where Carol goes from here but Melissa McBride should be woo’ed to play Joan McClaine in a remake of DieHard.

  5. Geo says:

    Carol is a remarkable character, since she went from an often badly written and frequently tedious part of the show in the beginning to maybe the best character– with the best-written and most interesting scenes– on the show. That doesn’t tend to happen a lot on tv.

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Great photo of Carol. Excited to watch new season next month!

  7. Carol is absolutely the most compelling character on television ever.

  8. JJ says:

    Melissa McBride is co-starring in the upcoming movie The Happys! Can’t wait to see her in a different role!!

  9. Mare says:

    LOVE Carol! Easily my favorite character. Amazing to see her transformation from a mousy, abused housewife, to a complete badazz!!!

  10. slm says:

    Carol is a favorite of mine, love McBride’s portrayal, don’t kill her off ever!

      Carol Peletier better not get killed off by Negan. The Walking Dead. She has to stay human until season 12. Would like her to fight against The Saviours- All Out War episode.
