AMC has unveiled a promo for The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, the next spin-off following The Walking Dead: Dead City
The June 18th premiere of AMC’s walking dead spin off The Walking Dead: Dead Citywhich follows the characters of Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is nearly upon us… and in the build-up to that premiere, AMC has gone ahead and shared a short promo for the next spin-off in line , The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon – a show that, as the title gives away, focuses on the Daryl Dixon character played by Norman Reedus. The short ad can be seen at the bottom of this article.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon has the following synopsis: Daryl (Reedus) 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 complicates his ultimate plan.
Showrunner David Zabel serves as executive producer alongside Reedus, Scott M. Gimple, Angela Kang, Greg Nicotero, Brian Bockrath, and Daniel Percival. AMC Studios is producing. The first season of the series will consist of six episodes and is expected to start airing on AMC and AMC+ sometime by the end of 2023.
Reedus is joined in the cast by Anne Charrier (The Last Deadly Mission), Eriq Ebanouey (Fox Hunt), Laika Blanc Francard (My Night), newcomer Louis Puech Scigliuzzi, and Romain Levi (The Tunnel). All of these cast members have “series regular” status – but the only things we know about their characters are their names. Charrier is playing Genet, Ebanouey is Fallou, Blanc Francard is Sylvie, Levi is Codron, and Puech Scigliuzzi is Laurent. We know a bit more about characters being played by Clémence Poésy (tenet) and Adam Nagaitis (The Terror). Poésy is playing Isabelle, “a member of a progressive religious group, who joins forces with Daryl (Reedus) on a journey across France and finds herself confronting her dark past in Paris.” The character Nagaitis is playing is 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.”
Beyond The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixonthere’s another spin-off called The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne to look forward to. That one is only expected to be a limited series.
