The Walking Dead’s little boy has survived one of the toughest challenges his life will offer: high school.
The young man charged with playing Carl Grimes on the AMC series announced that he finished high school on Tuesday afternoon. Chandler Riggs shared a tweet reading, “officially done with high school wow.” This comes after his final AP exam which was completed on Monday, as told by a prior tweet reading, “just took my 10th (and last) ap exam ever. rip my brain.”

Riggs’ future after high school has been a subject of debate among fans of The Walking Dead, which the young actor joined in 2010 at 11 years old. After being congratulated on acceptance to Auburn University (a school located in Alabama which he will not be attending in the fall — in favor of an in-state school) by former co-star Jon Bernthal, the uproar of “Is Carl going to die?” questions took the Internet by storm.
Riggs’ character survived Season 7 of the AMC series, however, and the actor also shared his excitement to begin filming on the eighth season just a few weeks ago.
