About This Quiz

"The Walking Dead" is a post (zombie)-apocalyptic TV series adapted from a comic book series of the same name. They were written by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Tony Moore, but the show itself was developed by Frank Darabont. It currently airs on AMC and centers around a man named Rick and his group of survivors. 

The group starts off in different places and eventually meet up in Atlanta. Along the way, they lose people to Walkers, in-fighting, and other reasons, but they also gain new members (some trustworthy and others, not so much). They try to settle in different locations but there's always a villain who just won't leave them be. Currently, that person is Negan and he's the most ruthless yet.

We're now getting to see that Rick's group is not the only colony left after the apocalypse, but there's also the Scavengers, the Wolves, Hilltop, the Kingdom, Oceanside and of course, the Saviors. Have you been paying enough attention to the show to name the characters we've chosen from just one picture? Take this quiz to find out. And if you're not at least caught up with the mid-season finale of season eight, then this quiz contains spoilers that may or may not make you cry.
