A promo for The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon finds the title character in a French abbey, surrounded by mysterious nuns
The Walking Dead reached the end of its eleven season run last year, and now the first of its follow-up spin-offs, The Walking Dead: Dead City, is making its way out into the world through AMC and the AMC+ streaming service. Sometime this fall, we’ll be seeing another spin-off, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon – and today a new promo for that series has arrived online, showing the title character in a French abbey, surrounded by mysterious nuns. You can watch the promo in the embed at the bottom of this article.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon has the following synopsis: Daryl (Norman 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 complicate 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.
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 Dixon, there’s another follow-up spin-off called The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne to look forward to. That one is only expected to be a limited series.
