“The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live” emerges as the latest and most eagerly anticipated addition to The Walking Dead universe. Focused on Rick and Michonne’s post-apocalyptic journey, the series delves into Rick’s abduction by Jadis and his subsequent confinement within the Civic Republic Military (CRM), while Michonne steadfastly searches for her missing husband.

Navigating the series’ timeline amidst numerous spin-offs and time jumps poses a significant challenge. Rick’s departure in Season 9, following a bridge explosion, occurs approximately three-and-a-half years into the apocalypse, around 2013. Subsequent events unfold through various time jumps, with Daryl’s search for Rick spanning between 2015 and 2017, and a significant six-year time leap placing the narrative around 2018 or 2019.

Season 10 progresses with another time jump, potentially into 2020 or 2021, as Michonne embarks on her quest to locate Rick. The final season aligns with the same timeline, culminating in the Commonwealth’s victory and subsequent events around 2022, the year the show concludes.

As “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live” kicks off with its premiere episode “Years,” set approximately five years post-bridge explosion, Rick grapples with life under CRM control, haunted by visions of his family. The series unfolds Rick’s multiple escape attempts, showcasing his resilience and struggle for freedom.

Throughout the narrative, time advances steadily, indicated by Rick’s evolving circumstances within CRM and his training alongside new ally Pearl. Ultimately, the timelines converge in a dramatic finale, uniting Rick and Michonne in the present day, mirroring the conclusion of “The Walking Dead” and marking 13.5 years since the apocalypse’s onset.
