The next spinoff show from the world of “The Walking Dead” is AMC’s “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon,” which premiered earlier this week on AMC & AMC+. If you don’t have either, there’s good news: the premiere episode is available to watch online right now.
“The upcoming spinoff series tracks Daryl Dixon’s (Norman Reedus) journey across a broken but resilient France as he hopes to find a way back home. As he makes the journey, though, the connections he forms along the way complicate his ultimate plan.”
Check out the premiere episode below, in which “Daryl Dixon’s arrival to France sets off a violent chain of events that inadvertently puts a young boy at the heart of a growing religious movement in danger. Daryl agrees to help shepherd the boy to safety in exchange for help returning to America.
Based on previous plot descriptions, expect to see a lot of stunning set pieces ahead in this offshoot series. “Set after the series conclusion of TWD, the Reedus-led offshoot finds the zombie apocalypse fan favorite transported across the Atlantic to France and a whole new level of a world gone mad. Poesy will play the female lead Isabelle, a member of a progressive religious group, who joins forces with Daryl on a journey across France and finds herself confronting her dark past in Paris. Nagaitis protrays Quinn, a displaced Brit who has become powerful in post-apocalyptic Paris as a black marketeer and the owner of the Demimonde, a sexy underground nightclub.”
David Zabel will serve as showrunner for the Daryl Dixon show.
The series stars Norman Reedus, Clémence Poésy, Adam Nagaitis, Anne Charrier, Eriq Ebouaney, Laika Blanc Francard, Romain Levi and Louis Puech Scigliuzzi and is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, as well as Showrunner David Zabel, Norman Reedus, Greg Nicotero, Angela Kang, Brian Bockrath and Daniel Percival.
This particular spinoff project had originally been announced as a Daryl/Carol series, and it sounds like Melissa McBride may indeed be returning for the series in a limited capacity.
“The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon” isn’t the only spinoff series available. Fans can also look for “The Walking Dead: Dead City,” which premiered earlier this year. In his review, Noah Levine said of the spinoff, “The real draw of the show seems to come from the setting itself.”
