The first footage from The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon set to premiere this fall on AMC, shows Daryl washing ashore in France and traversing the french countryside.
Revealed during last night’s episode of The Walking Dead: Dead City, Daryl steps off a boat and he speaks into a voice recorder: “My name is Daryl Dixon. I come from a place called the Commonwealth. It’s in America. I went out looking for something, and all I found was trouble. If I don’t make it back, I want ’em to know I tried. Hell, I’m still trying.”
Daryl then begins a trek that takes him through mountains, across abandoned bridges, and through an alley where the camera pans to graffiti on the side of the building that reads “pouvoir des vivants” (power of the living). He then turns to walk inside of the mysterious building. Given how integral France proved to be to the story of The Walking Dead universe in World Beyond, could Daryl have tracked down the medical facility that started this all?
The limited series released in 2021 revealed a recording of Dr. Edwin Jenner who explained that the variants of walkers that are popping up in Toledo, Ohio could be because of the Primrose team conference. We find out there were two teams — Primrose and Violet, with the implication being that the virus was entirely manmade. In season 11 of The Walking Dead, new variants started popped up that showed them being able to climb, pick up rocks and throw them, open doors, and more.
Adam Nagaitis and Clémence Poésy star opposite Norman Reedus with Poésy playing Isabelle, a member of a progressive religious group, who joins Daryl across France, finding herself confronting her dark past in Paris. Nagaitis plays Quinn, a displaced Brit who has risen to power in post-apocalyptic Paris as a black marketeer and the owner of a sexy underground nightclub. The series also stars Anne Charrier, Eriq Ebouaney as Codron, Laika Blanc Francard as Sylvie, Romain Levi as Philippe and Louis Puech Scigliuzzi as Laurent.
