Rick Grimes is a former Sheriff's deputy who has been in a coma for several months after being shot while on duty. When he awakens he discovers that the world has been ravished by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions, and that he seems to be the only person still alive. After returning home to discover his wife and son missing, he heads for Atlanta to search for his family. Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the zombies on arrival in Atlanta he is aided by another survivor, Glenn, who takes Rick to a camp outside the town. There Rick finds his wife Lori and his son, Carl, along with his partner/best friend Shane and a small group of survivors who struggle to fend off the zombie hordes; as well as competing with other surviving groups who are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive in this harsh new world.

Between seasons 1 and 5 Carl Grimes has only aged twice from age 12 to 14. However, actor Chandler Riggs
will be 16 years old when Season 6 goes to air. This means there could be some sort of time jump (seen in the graphic novels) to ensure that the actor isn't too old for his role. See more
Repeatedly throughout the series, Rick Grimes wrongly refers to himself and his co-workers as "police" or "officers", whereas they are Sheriff's deputies. See more
