Walking Dead Wiki

April Martens is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is a resident of the Commonwealth.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about April's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that it's possible she had one or two children.



At some point during the outbreak, April joined a community in Ohio, where she lives with her two children.

Season 11

"Rogue Element"

April's name appears on a list of names sent to Connie and Kelly and is the fourth from the end.

"The Rotten Core"

Daryl and Rosita enter the house and find the panic room where the cash is stashed. April pounds on the door from inside the locked room. April explains she was in debt when Sebastian offered her a way out. She was with a group of 12, but only three made it inside. They were able to turn on the generators when the two men she was with turned on each other, so April locked them out and was trapped inside when the power shut off. Daryl turns on the generator.

The whirring draws out a walker. Daryl fights it off as the power comes back. Rosita enters the code to free April. Daryl busts into the safe as the panic room alarm blares, threatening to draw even more walkers towards the house. Rosita smashes the alarm, shutting it off. They fill a duffle bag with money and barricade themselves inside. Mercer and Carol rescue them. Rosita and April explain that Sebastian sent them to the house to get cash for him.

Daryl's group quietly slips past walkers in the house, covered in walker guts to disguise their smell. April accidentally draws attention to herself and gets devoured. The group slays the walkers. Rosita puts down April.


Rosita and Eugene tell Connie and Kelly about the events at Cooper's House. Connie and Kelly pull out the list that they were sent and point out April's name on it. However, Rosita states that while there could be a connection to Sebastian's actions, there are way more people on the list than just what Sebastian had sent into that house.

"Acts of God"

Max finds April and Tyler's names on a list marked "Resettlements" that she steals from Pamela Milton's office.


Killed By

While doing the guts trick to escape Cooper's House with Daryl, Rosita, Mercer, and Carol, a piece of armor that April is wearing gets caught on a walker's shirt. Panicking, she kills it and ends up being swarmed by multiple walkers around her.

After the room is cleared, Rosita sees that April has been disemboweled and killed. She then stabs her in the head to prevent reanimation.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims April has killed:

  • Herself (Caused, Accidental)
  • At least 1 zombie


TV Series

Season 11


  • The list of names Connie receives in "Rogue Element" has April's last name as Kelly whereas the list of names in "Trust" reveals the character's last name as Martens. This is likely a production error as the same props were not used for both episodes, hence the difference in April's last name.
