The Walking Dead universe received a lot of new information regarding the spinoff series this week from the Television Critics Association’s 2023 winter tour. Fear the Walking Dead will premiere its eighth and final season in May, Dead City has been moved to June, and Rick and Michonne’s series will wait until 2024 to release. The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon series didn’t get a lot of new information, but an official synopsis explains a bit more about his journey.

Fans of The Walking Dead universe are excited about the upcoming spinoff series and the continuation of some characters’ storylines. One series will feature fan-favorite Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) as he ends up in France. The how and why of how he ends up there will hopefully be explained in the early scenes of the series.

In the series finale of The Walking Dead that aired in November 2022, Daryl was last seen saying his goodbyes and taking off on his bike to see what else is out there and see if he could locate Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln), who he only recently found out didn’t die in the bridge explosion of season 9.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon spinoff release date update

There has been no specific date for the release of Daryl Dixon, but it has been clarified that this series will release late in 2023. This will allow Fear the Walking Dead and Dead City to air their episodes earlier in the year.
