The Walking Dead is crossing the pond as one of the series' most iconic characters gets a spinoff set in Paris. The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon is the newest spinoff coming to AMC, following in the footsteps of the Maggie and Negan spinoff The Walking Dead: Dead City

Several of the franchise's leading stars are continuing their characters' stories in limited series. Dead City and Daryl Dixon are the precursors to the highly anticipated Rick and Michonne spinoff slated for 2024. All three series pick up at some point in the future now that the flagship series has come to an end. Additionally, all three will push the show's mythology into brand-new territory

The show was renewed for a second season ahead of the September premiere, with the announcement and first trailer debuting at SDCC 2023.
