Why The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Is Set In Paris?
Wrapping up Daryl’s journey in The Walking Dead, the series finale found him parting ways with Carol and his crew to explore more of what was happening around the U.S during zombie apocalypse; The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon then picks up months later as he embarks on a solo mission through France without relying on any familiar faces from before.
Daryl will no longer be traveling alone on his French journey – he’ll have some fresh faces joining him. Clémence Poésy (The Essex Serpent) and Adam Nagaitis (Chernobyl), who will be playing Isabelle, a progressive religious group member, and Quinn, the owner of an underground British nightclub respectively.
Paris may be disclosed to be the site of Biomédicine DDMI, a prominent location from The Walking Dead franchise that was first seen in its spinoff series, The Walking Dead: World Beyond. This would spare audiences from having any doubts about Daryl’s journey to France if there is something significant waiting for him when he arrives. After all, who wouldn’t travel halfway across the world knowing they are destined for greatness?
The Walking Dead: World Beyond‘s grand finale featured a surprise appearance from Dr. Jenner, originally seen on The Walking Dead season 1. It turns out that he had been in contact with Biomédicine DDMI the whole time–the place where the walker virus was reportedly created and speculated to potentially have an answer for curing it as well! If this is true, Daryl could find himself at one of his most dangerous yet rewarding journeys when searching for a cure in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon.
