The Walking Dead Final Episodes have started and we are heading towards the end of AMC’s flagship zombie show. Fortunately for long-time TWD fans, multiple spinoffs are on their way. That includes the Daryl Dixon series starring The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus.
Originally planned as a Daryl & Carol series starring Reedus and Melissa McBride, the network redeveloped the untitled TWD spinoff to focus on Daryl’s solo mission that will take him to Paris, France. The revised version of the show is due to McBride stepping down from the project which caused some unfair backlash towards Reedus.
The Walking Dead actor recently was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Reedus shared some details about the spinoff series and might have already revealed the title: Daryl Dixon.
“I’m pushing for a title, but I don’t think it has an official title yet,” Reedus told Kimmel. “There’s a title that I want. To find a title is insane, because there’s thousands and thousands of the most ridiculous choices you have to choose from.”
Reedus shared that he’s heard “a bunch” of potential titles and presumably with and without the Walking Dead branding incorporated in the title like Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and Tales of the Walking Dead.
“I’m hoping for a certain title. Let’s just think about it. She-Hulk is She-Hulk. Spider-Man’s Spider-Man. Batman’s Batman,” Reedus said. “So, why not this be, ‘boom boom’? You know what I mean? You see where I’m going with that, without me saying that?”
A Walking Dead Universe trailer teased the series, simply referring to the spinoff as “Daryl Dixon. The Walking Dead actor later tweeted the image which shows a post-apocalyptic version of the Eiffel Tower. You can see it below:

Then on Talking Dead, Reedus revealed new details about the Daryl Dixon series from showrunner David Zabel. The Walking Dead executive producer Angela Kang, who co-developed the original version of the spinoff, remains on as producer with The Walking Dead Universe chief content officer Scott M. Gimple.
The Daryl Dixon series will film and take place in France. It’ll bring on The Walking Dead franchise veteran director, producer, and special make-up FX designer Greg Nicotero. While there is no exact release date, the series is targeting to premiere in 2023 on AMC and AMC+ streaming service.
