The Walking Dead will leave fans with a number of spinoffs as the series is about to come to its end. One of the most awaited spinoffs is the story about Daryl Dixon, and Norman Reedus himself reveals how this one will be different from the long-running original series.

Reedus has played the role of the fan-favorite Daryl since the third episode of the first season. Now that The Walking Dead is on its 11th and final season, fans will luckily continuously see Daryl in a new TV series set in France.

Daryl-Centric The Walking Dead Spinoff

Fans will see Daryl building an alliance with new characters. Originally, he was supposed to be with Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier, but the actress later announced her exit.

Despite that, the series continues its production in France, per ScreenRant.

Little details are only known about the upcoming spinoff. Thankfully, Reedus gave fans some ideas on what they were about to see in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

The 53-year-old actor admitted that the ideas for the spinoff “changed directions multiple times” as the production continued. This move was to ensure that fans would get a new experience—far different from what they had seen in the original show.

He said,

“We knew we wanted to make a show that went in the opposite direction, just because we didn't want to do the same thing. And it's going to be way different. The story's way different. The characters are way different. There's a different tone, there's different light, there's a different sound. It's a whole different vibe. This is going to be f***ing epic.”
