Walking Dead: World Beyond Will Answer All Your Questions About the 'Three Rings' Group That Took Rick 2

The Walking Dead’s second spinoff, the limited series The Walking Dead: World Beyond, finally premieres Sunday, October 4 on AMC, bringing answers to long-lingering questions about the Three Rings group that’s been seen on the other two Walking Dead shows.

This large, heavily-armed group — which uses a Three Rings logo — has become a very big part of the Walking Dead TV-verse over the past few years. Walking Dead Universe boss Scott Gimple referred to the group as the “CRM” during World Beyond’s Comic-Con panel, and a clip from World Beyond has revealed that the organization’s military is called the “Civic Republic Military.”

What we know heading into World Beyond, which takes place 10 years into the zombie apocalypse (so just a little bit ahead of The Walking Dead), is that the Civic Republic is one part of a wider group, “The Alliance of the Three,” that is represented by the Three Rings or Three Circles symbol. It represents three communities: the Civic Republic (location unknown), a township somewhere around Portland, and the World Beyond’s “Campus Colony” near Omaha.

We talked to the cast of World Beyond, who all play characters living in the walled-up Campus Colony, and asked them about how their new series ties into The Walking Dead story at large. World Beyond centers on two teen sisters, Iris and Hope Bennett, who leave the safety of their home and venture out to find their scientist father, who they believe is in danger working for the Civic Republic. Stars Alexa Mansour and Aliyah Royale told us about the possible duplicitous nature of the CRM.

“The university is a really awesome self-sufficient community,” Royale, who plays Iris, said. “We call it the Campus Colony because obviously, it was a university prior to the apocalypse. There’s an entire system in place. There’s a system of trading. They have a system of not-so-typical ways of punishment and correcting behavior. There’s classes for how to handle ‘Empties.’ At the same time, there’s a choir class. It’s combining post-apocalyptic life with trying to give everyone the world they once knew.”

“Everyone has seen the Three-Ring symbol,” Royale added. “Especially on the helicopter where Rick is being carried out. I think it’s going to be fun for everyone to see what that is and what that means. Who the CRM is. What the Alliance of the Three is. It only gets more complicated.”

“I think they’re up to no good,” Monsour said. “Well, Hope definitely thinks so,” she clarified of her character’s mistrust of the group. “[Hope] thinks they’re holding her father against his will. She just got a message from him that was pretty much telling her and her sister that he’s not doing well and he loves them. So the people you’re supposed to trust to get us somewhere are not really trustworthy.”

The Americans’ Annet Mahendru, who plays Campus Community security officer Huck, shared how exciting this new premise was.

“The mythology all connects, so we are one community, one of the rings,” she said, “and you will find as the story unfolds how we connect to the other rings. We’ve always been part of this world, it’s just the story hasn’t been told yet. And we’ll see people in other parts of the post-apocalyptic world making their way and trying to survive.”

Nico Tortorella, who plays Campus Community security head Felix promised a huge revelation right out of the gate: “[World Beyond] very much ties in the other two shows,” he said. “This show is leading us to a bigger storyline that connects the entire universe. And right off the bat, in the first episode of this show, Walking Dead fans will get huge news, and things will make sense across all three shows in ways they didn’t know they needed.”

The Walking Dead: World Beyond premieres Sunday, October 4 on AMC following episode 16 of The Walking Dead Season 10 (which will now no longer be the official finale, since AMC has added six more episodes to Season 10 that will air in 2021).
