Critic Consensus: Vintage-style action and the spark of a hot new romance make "The Next World" a gratifying successor to the shocking mid-season premiere.

Critic reviews for The Next World
I'm wondering if this isn't some new spin-off show we're watching. The Waking Dad, perhaps.
Serious things happen in "The Next World"... but overall the episode is about things that just seem so...unnecessary.
This episode [is] a vanilla-scented stroll through the land of country sunshine and biscuits...with sex. It [is] a well-deserved deep breath for us Walking Dead fans.
...a gate way for some new kinds of Walking Dead storytelling, and that's something we sorely need on the road to our next big bad.
Thankfully, this episode featured [Rick and Daryl] front and center on a supply run, and it was one-million percent amazing.
