The Civic Republic Military tests Hope’s (Alexa Mansour) commitment to the future, and a new community reveals itself in the Season 2 premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Last season ended with the Bennett sisters, Hope and Iris (Aliyah Royale), separated after their cross-country journey to save their father (Joe Holt) from the CRM. Iris and Felix reconnected with Will (Jelani Alladin) after his near-death escape from a Civic Republic research center in New York State. The facility is the destination that Lt. Col. Elizabeth Kublek (Julia Ormond) and Huck (Annet Mahendru) secretly shepherded Hope, a young genius revealed to be an asset for the future.
