The Walking Dead is coming to an end, long live The Walking Dead. As AMC has been busy promoting the end of its long-running series while also promoting the next generation with various spinoffs in some form of development. Among them is one focused primarily on Daryl Dixon. Norman Reedus is set to lead the series as his iconic character once again, as he seemingly finds his way to Europe.
Now, the upcoming spinoff series has added two to its cast. Clémence Poésy from The Essex Serpent and Chernobyl‘s Adam Nagaitis will join the cast with the latter also once again returning to AMC after having appeared in The Terror. Little is still known about the spinoff series outside of it taking place in France as we explore a new corner of this zombie-infested world.
Poésy is set to take on the role of Isabelle, the female lead of this project, who is a member of a religious group and ends up having to confront her dark past. Nagaitis will take on the role of a black market and nightclub owner that has made quite a living in the post-apocalypse. Melissa McBride was originally also going to have a big role in the series but opted out of the project. So, it’ll be interesting to see how they tackle her absence and generally what exactly would inspire Dixon to find his way across the Atlantic.
