The six-episode first season of Reedus’ Walking dead spin-off could be released as early as August – a month when the seasons of Fear and Stories of the walking dead — or as late as October, traditionally reserved for season premieres of The living Dead. Fall 2023 is more open now that the Rick & Michonne series reuniting Lincoln and Gurira has been postponed to 2024.
After driving west to explore the “frontier” in the November series finale of The living Dead, Reedus’ solo series follows Daryl as him “wakes up and finds himself somewhere on the European continent trying to figure out what happened,” revealed AMC President Dan McDermott. ‘How did he get here? How is he going home?”
Originally developed as the Daryl & Carol spin-off starring Reedus and Melissa McBride, the Europa set Daryl Dixon is shown by ER and Mercy street showrunner David Zabel. Scott M. Gimple and Angela Kang, who developed the original road trip version of Daryl & Carolserving as executive producers alongside veteran Walking dead director Greg Nicotero.
“I don’t want to say too much. I just think it’s really kind of embracing Stranger in a strange land kind of scenario, where we explore post-apocalyptic Europe through the eyes of Daryl Dixon,” Nicotero told exclusively Comic book. With a cast included TWD Universe newcomers Clémence Poésy and Adam Nagaitis, the Reedus-led spinoff “is just another animal.”
“And I was even a little surprised when I got on set and said, ‘I’ve been busy Walking dead for 12 years and here we are,” added Nicotero to the France shot Daryl Dixon. “But it feels fresh and it feels new. And David Zabel, our showrunner, was an absolute joy to work with. And it was really fun.”
