Betty Coleman is a survivor of the outbreak in Season 3 of AMC's The Walking Dead. Betty lives in the town of Woodbury with her husband.


Location Unknown

Very little is known about Betty's life before or as the outbreak began apart from that she had a husband, daughter, and son.


Season 3

"When the Dead Come Knocking"

Her name is mentioned by Milton Mamet as a part of an experiment to see if Michael Coleman would remember his previous life after he died and reanimated.

"Made to Suffer"

Betty is seen at the arena demanding the death for the Dixon brothers after Woodbury is infiltrated.

"The Suicide King"

Betty is seen at the arena demanding for the death of the Dixon brothers after Woodbury was infiltrated. She flees the arena when Rick and Maggie shoot out the lights. The next morning, Betty and the other townspeople tries to leave Woodbury but are unable to do so. She then witnesses Richard Foster be attacked and killed in the street. Later, she listens to Andrea's speech.

Post-Prison Assault

Following the failed prison assault in "Welcome to the Tombs", Betty's fate is unclear. It is possible she was among the townspeople murdered by The Governor out on the road as she was not seen being brought to the prison with the remaining Woodbury townspeople, nor was she spotted residing at the prison in Season 4. It is also possible that Betty was among the Woodbury soldiers who retreated into the woods, but as all Woodbury citizens are considered dead, it is likely she is not alive.


Killed By

It's unknown what happened to her, but it's most likely she was killed by The Governor after the failed prison assault. Her fate was left unknown, but was never seen again in season 4, indicating she was most likely among the Woodbury Army on the road when The Governor opened fire on them, killing everyone (except Karen) including Betty.

Season 3


  • Betty Coleman was never credited, but Woodbury extra Debi Hett-Kimsey confirmed on her Facebook that she portrayed Betty Coleman in the photograph.[1]
  • According to Debi Hett-Kimsey, she is not entirely sure of Betty's fate, as many of the Woodbury survivors simply vanished from the show. She was not included in the finale of Season 3. In spite of this, it would be assumed that Betty was included in the Woodbury Army and is presumed to have died in the massacre.[1]
