THE WALKING DEAD Spin-Off Series Starring Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon First Details Announced


The Walking Dead series is coming to an end, but the saga is going on with a few exciting new projects, including the show that will follow Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) in a new adventure. The first details have been announced for the show that was originally set to follow Daryl and Carol but will now be a solo show after Melissa McBride has gotten out. The show will take place in Paris, and shooting overseas was understandably not workable for the Walking Dead actress.


So Reedus will be traveling to France, where the show will be run by E.R. writer and Mercy Street creator David Zabel. Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead at AMC, Scott Gimple, is overseeing this new series, and the executive producer addressed the Daryl Dixon spinoff live Sunday during the Talking Dead: The Walking Dead Universe Preview 2022 special (via CB), revealing plans for the series set to premiere in 2023 on AMC and AMC+.

“The Daryl spinoff takes place in France,” Gimple announced. Confirming a connection to the Variant walkers introduced in the post-credits epilogue of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Gimple said, “[The World Beyond coda] is a bit of a tease of some of the things Daryl is going to face.”

Gimple said:

“Daryl is a fish out of water to start with. If Daryl finds himself with new people, he’s a fish out of water. In France, in a country that’s going through the apocalypse, [it’s] an entirely different thing. He finds himself having to reinvent himself again, having to find himself again, and also, not being with — probably — the only people in the world he’s comfortable with.”

During The Walking Dead‘s final series panel at San Diego Comic-Con in July, Reedus assured the Comic-Con crowd that “Carol and Daryl’s story isn’t over yet.” Reedus’ comment echoed a statement by AMC, which said that McBride could return to TWD Universe — after what Reedus called “some time off.”
