The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Release Date
Although an official debut date for The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon has not been set in stone yet, it is expected to arrive on AMC and AMC+ this year. This news was confirmed at the Television Critics Association winter press tour where representatives from AMC announced that Daryl Dixon will be released “later this year”. Consequently, 2023 now marks the third installment of The Walking Dead series as Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 premieres on May 14th while The Walking Dead: Dead City launches sometime in June. With such a condensed timeline, one can expect that Daryl Dixon’s premiere should come around late fall or early winter!
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Storyline
In a peculiar twist of fate, Emily isn’t the sole out-of-place American in Paris. The fan favorite Daryl Dixon (seen lately departing on his motorbike to seek Rick and Michonne), somehow arrives at France for Daryl Dixon; though we don’t know now how he got there! Undoubtedly, the “how” is vital and possibly amusingly humorous since an ocean lies between where he was last seen and where eventually ends up. This is AMC’s official logline: “In The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, Daryl washes ashore in France and struggles to piece together how he got there and why. The series tracks his 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.”
In his statement, Walking Dead head honcho Scott Gimple exclaimed that Daryl Dixon had been transported to France in a new and perilous world of the undead. Zombies with baguettes? Perhaps! As Deadline reported on their announcement about its new cast members, this spin-off series will show how Reedus’s character navigates through an even more chaotic universe than ever before. It doesn’t get any madder than fending off fearsome zombies armed with nothing else but a baguette!
Initially, Melissa McBride was slated to join Reedus’ Daryl in this series; however, due to logistical impediments from the show’s French filming location, she had to withdraw. As a result of these issues, the series has been reimagined as a single-character quest starring Daryl alone.
How many episodes will The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Season 1 be?
Although an unofficial source reported that the upcoming series starring Daryl Dixon will be short-lived with only six episodes, let’s not forget what other show had a similar start: The Walking Dead! Let’s hope that this news turns out to be true as we await official confirmation on the runtime of Daryl Dixon.
Where is The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon filmed?
AMC is staying true to their roots, with filming for the new project commencing in France this October 2022.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon cast
The Walking Dead is set to take an exciting new turn in 2022, as the series takes us into a different continent and culture. As this show will be based in France, you won’t see many American actors featured throughout- however, Reedus shared at NY Comic Con that there are expected to be “a lot of familiar faces” included! We’re still a bit perplexed on how he plans on managing all these details but we can only wait until next year to find out for sure.
