AMC today announced the premiere date for its long-awaited Daryl Dixon spin-off series. New images from the show’s first season, which stars Norman Reedus at the helm, were also released.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon catches up with Daryl (Reedus) who has washed ashore in France, struggling 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 complicate his ultimate plan.
In addition to Reedus, the series stars Clémence Poésy as Isabelle, Adam Nagaitis as Quinn, Anne Charrier, Eriq Ebouaney as Codron, Laika Blanc Francard as Sylvie, Romain Levi as Philippe and Louis Puech Scigliuzzi as Laurent. The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Showrunner David Zabel, Reedus, Greg Nicotero, Angela Kang, Brian Bockrath and Daniel Percival.
The limited series The Walking Dead: World Beyond 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.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon is set to premiere Sunday, September 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC and AMC+.
