The Walking Dead kills characters like you or I change socks, so there are a lot of alumni to keep track of if you want to follow their careers. We're here to help. Here's a handy compendium of where all the actors who had important deaths on The Walking Dead are now, as of the middle of Season 8.
Jim (Andrew Rothenberg)
The first guy to die on The Walking Dead was last seen as a guest star on Chicago Justice.
Dr. Jenner (Noah Emmerich)
Dr. Edwin Jenner was a small but pivotal role on The Walking Dead, and it was for Emmerich too; it wasn't long after The Walking Dead that he landed the biggest role of his long career as FBI Agent Stan Beeman on The Americans.
Otis (Pruitt Taylor Vince)
Sophia (Madison Lintz)
Carol's daughter is now a cast member on Amazon's detective show Bosch.
Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn)
Shane (Jon Bernthal)
Bernthal has had perhaps the most distinguished post-TWD career of anyone. There's a clear line from his role as Rick's violent, unstable former bestie to his starring role as the iconic comics character the Punisher in Netflix's Marvel franchise.
T-Dogg (IronE Singleton)
T-Dogg has walked a peculiar path since leaving The Walking Dead. He has an autobiographical one-man show called Blindsided by The Walking Dead (it's also about being being in The Blind Side)and is a fixture at Walking Dead fan conventions.
Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies)
The artist formerly known as Rick's wife Lori resurrected her breakthrough character Sara on Fox's Prison Break revival in 2017 and will return for the third season of USA's sci-fi series Colony later this year.
Merle (Michael Rooker)
The prosthetics Rooker got as Daryl's big brother probably prepared him for his role as Yondu Udonta in the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise.
Milton (Dallas Roberts)
Milton was last seen in Season 3 of the underseen limited series American Crime.
Andrea (Laurie Holden)
Laurie Holden joined The Americans as a love interest for fellow Walking Dead alum Noah Emmerich.
Karen (Melissa Ponzio)
Hershel (Scott Wilson)
The Greene family patriarch was last seen on Netflix's sci-fi series The OA.
The Governor (David Morrissey)
The Governor is swapping his eyepatch for a suit of armor on Brittania. Morrissey plays Roman general Aulus Plautius on Amazon's historical epic.
Mika (Kyla Kennedy)
Poor Mika got murdered by her sister. The good news is that she found a loving family on ABC's hit comedy Speechless.
Gareth (Andrew J. West)
The cannibalistic leader of Terminus is now one of the main characters on Once Upon a Time's seventh season as grown-up Henry Mills.
Bob (Lawrence Gilliard)
Where's Bob Stookey, String? Sasha's poor cannibalized ex-boyfriend is in Times Square now, playing a put-upon beat cop on HBO's The Deuce.
Beth (Emily Kinney)
The younger Greene sister had bad luck with two back-to-back canceled ABC series — Conviction and Ten Days in the Valley — but there's a chance she'll be seen again in the Arrowverse, where her character, the bee-obsessed baddie Brie Larvan, has been comatose since her defeat on Arrow.
Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman)
Noah (Tyler James Williams)
Young Noah was most recently a cast member on Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, playing technical analyst Russ Montgomery.
Reg (Steve Coulter)
Coulter went from playing the husband of a lawmaker on The Walking Dead to playing the governor of Tennessee on House of Cards.
Pete (Corey Brill)
Jessie's husband got put down by Rick. He most recently popped up in a guest spot on Chicago P.D.
Nicholas (Michael Traynor)
The cowardly Nicholas was last seen on Ten Days in the Valley, but his main gig besides The Walking Dead has been The Fosters, where he recurs as math teacher Craig.
Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh)
The Alpha Wolf (Benedict Samuel)
Samuel currently plays the supervillain Jervis Tetch, aka the Mad Hatter, on Gotham.
Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge)
Paula (Alicia Witt)
Alicia Witt has been very busy since her memorable Season 6 one-off in 2016. She's since appeared on Nashville, Supernatural, Twin Peaks and The Exorcist and starred in the Hallmark movies Christmas List and The Mistletoe Inn.
Denise (Merritt Wever)
Glenn (Steven Yeun)
Yeun has mostly stuck to voice-acting since Glenn got his head smashed in, and his voice can be heard in the Netflix kids' shows Trollhunters, Voltron: Legendary Defender and Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters. His face was last seen in the movie Okja.
Abraham (Michael Cudlitz)
Spencer (Austin Nichols)
Nichols had two notable deaths in just a few months, first getting gutted by Negan on The Walking Dead and then getting stabbed to death by Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) on Bates Motel in a twist on Psycho's famous shower scene. At least he got a love scene with Rihanna.
Olivia (Ann Mahoney)
Mahoney went from getting shot in the eye on The Walking Dead to playing Gladys Presley, Elvis' mother, on CMT's miniseries Sun Records.
Benjamin (Logan Miller)
Miller is starring in two upcoming movies with hit potential — Blumhouse's thriller Prey and Greg Berlanti's high school dramedy Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Maybe Benjamin was a special boy after all.
Richard (Karl Makinen)
Makinen was one of three TWD actors (Alicia Witt and Josh McDermitt were the others) to appear in the Twin Peaks revival. He played a detective with a weird goatee.
Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green)
The erstwhile Sasha Williams is currently killing it as First Officer Michael Burnham on Star Trek: Discovery.
Eric (Jordan Woods-Robinson)
Aaron's boyfriend hasn't lined anything up since he turned and wandered off into the woods, but he'll find something.
Carl (Chandler Riggs)
Young Chandler has a bright future ahead of him. He'll be appearing in a movie called Only alongside Freida Pinto and Leslie Odom Jr. that's currently in production. And maybe you can catch him DJing at a club near you.
Gavin (Jayson Warner Smith)
The most reasonable Savior will also appear in Only, as well as an upcoming movie called Reckoning alongside True Detective's Brad Carter. And if you're in Atlanta in August, go see him in the play Blackbird by David Harrower at The Robert Mello Studio.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
