24. Carl Grimes

Second only to his father in the can't-be-killed stakes, there's been talk of Carl taking over whenever they do kill Rick off. And with the show potentially running to Season 12 and beyond, it's not beyond the realms of impossibility, even if it's debatable whether anyone would actually want a show led by Chandler Riggs.

Regardless of whether that happens or not, though, the writers clearly have big plans for Carl in Season 8 and long into the future, which means there's next to no chance of him being killed off now.
