Is Carol Leaving ‘The Walking Dead’ After 10 Seasons? — Details

It’s been 10 seasons since fans first met Carol (Melissa McBride) on The Walking Dead. They watched her grow from a suffering wife to a warrior queen. She’s seen violence, she’s seen death, and she loses more and more people that she loves every season. And maybe Carol has finally had enough. Is Carol leaving The Walking Dead

Is Carol leaving The Walking Dead? Season 10 may be setting up her exit.

Last season, Carol lost her son, Henry (Matt Lintz) to the Whisperers and her relationship with Ezekiel (Khary Payton) crumbled. After so much loss, Carol is left heartbroken this season. In the mid-season 10 premiere, Carol’s quest for vengeance leaves the Alexandrians in trouble.

With the group trapped underground, Carol sees Alpha (Samantha Morton) and immediately concocts a (suicide?) mission to blow up the hundreds of walkers with dynamite. When she accidentally slips, the dynamite explodes and the cave starts to crumble around them. 

Sadly, while everyone tries to escape, Connie and Magna are left behind and the cave collapses around them, leaving them trapped. Cue Carol’s tears. Overall, everyone is completely fed up with Carol’s lust for revenge.

It’s unlikely that Carol is going to leave this season, if she is departing the show. Season 10 has already shown that Carol is not over the death of her son and tensions with her son’s murderer, Alpha, are continuing to rise. We can probably expect that Carol will remain on the show until the conclusion of the Whisperer War. After all, Carol and Daryl were the ones to start the war, as they made the decision to cross the border that Alpha put up.

Executive producer Greg Nicotero has also given some hints that Carol will be a major player later this season. Speaking to TVLine, Greg said that, knowing her history, a smackdown between Carol and Alpha is pretty likely. He also claimed that Carol has “definitely got a vendetta.”

When and how is Carol going to leave The Walking Dead?

Carol was actually once on the chopping block with the writers, since she was killed off a long time ago in the comics series the show is based on. In earlier seasons, Melissa was frustrated that her character was constantly overwhelmed by grief and she wanted to see her grow and fight back. So when she heard that her character may be killed before she got the chance to grow, she had to speak out.

Melissa recalled thinking, “There was that time where they were gonna kill her. I asked to speak to somebody to tell them what I thought of Carol, because nobody had asked me at that point. I’m like, ‘Here’s who she is to me, just at least let me tell you that much and if you still want to kill her, fine’ — but it was important for me to speak for her.” Her speaking out may have saved the character from being killed off seasons ago. 

With Melissa speaking for her character, we can trust that we’ll see Carol leave The Walking Dead in a fitting way. 

In the meantime, we can still watch Carol every Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC.
