Warning! SPOILERS ahead for The Walking Dead: World Beyond season 2 premiere.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond season 2 has introduced a new name for massive zombie hordes who roam its post-apocalyptic landscape. Already in its final season (it was only ever planned as a two season entry), the spinoff is showing more of the wider world of The Walking Dead. The Civic Republic and its military wing, the CRM, for instance, are shown to be a wide-reaching organization with potential settlements in New York and Pennsylvania. Not to mention, it’s in contact with communities based in Omaha, Nebraska and Portland, Oregon.
That’s an expansive reach given the size of the United States, and it’s especially impressive given the near total collapse of any nationwide infrastructure. A big reason why the CRM has such a wide reach is its helicopters, which have been appearing across Walking Dead shows for several seasons now. While the CRM obviously uses its helicopters to cover a lot of ground, World Beyond‘s season 2 premiere introduces another way the CRM uses its helicopters, and it ties directly into the herds or hordes of walkers now shambling around the country.
