‘The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Teases More Daryl & Carol, Bringing Melissa McBride to Tears

Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl on The Walking Dead, said that the “Daryl-Carol story isn’t over yet” at Comic-Con. This refers to the relationship between Daryl and Melissa McBride‘s character Carol.

Even though Reedus didn’t say what he meant, it seems like he might be hinting at a Daryl and Carol spin-off. This new series is supposed to come out next year and his co-star from the original show, McBride, was originally going to be in it but she left the project earlier this year.

AMC said that they left because of travel logistics. People who worked with her defended her from the fans. Some people thought Daryl was responsible. Jeffrey Dean Morgan defended Reedus on social media, saying “Some of you have gone WAY too far,” TWD actor Morgan told his Twitter followers on April. “Attacking Norm for crap he has NOTHING to do with? Melissa made a call that was hers alone. She wants/needs a break. Respect that. Factors involved that are nobody’s business. Norm, who’s given more than anyone to you all. Just SHITTY.”

In a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Reedus said that McBride is taking a break from work, which is well deserved after so many years of hard work on The Walking Dead.

“Twelve years is a grueling schedule and she wanted to take some time off, so she’s doing that. She deserves it,” he said. “I imagine [Daryl and Carol] are gonna meet back up at some point and I might even meet up with some other characters down the road. But she’s taking time off and in the meantime, they were like, ‘Hey, you wanna go on a mission?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah! Let’s go on a mission.’”

Reedus and McBride were in San Diego today for their final Comic-Con bow as part of The Walking Dead. The show is returning for its final set of episodes on October 2nd, more than a decade after it first aired.

The panel for the show was moderated by Talking Dead‘s Chris Hardwick and it included The Walking Dead Universe’s Chief Content Officer Gimple, showrunner-EP Kang, director-EP and Special Effects Makeup Supervisor Greg Nicotero, and cast members Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Lauren Ridloff, Cailey Fleming and Michael James Shaw.

The Walking Dead is made by AMC. Gimple and Kang are in charge of the show and work with Kirkman, Nicotero, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Joseph Incaprera and Denise Huth. There is also a spin-off of The Walking Dead called Isle of the Dead. It will come out in 2023 and it has Morgan and Lauren Cohan coming back to play their characters.
