Daryl Dixon and Norman Reedus have long been fan favorites within The Walking Dead universe, so it is not much of a surprise the series has done so well.

Critics have called it the best Walking Dead content released in years.
The story follows Daryl’s unplanned journey to France, where he immediately sets a plan in motion to return home. Along the way, he encounters a group needing help and sets aside his plans to assist them.
The first season included actors Clémence Poésy, Adam Nagaitis, Anne Charrier, Eriq Ebouaney, Laïka Blanc-Francard, Romain Levi, and Louis Puech Scigliuzzi; all but Nagaitis will return in the second season. AMC also announced that Melissa McBride will join the second season with Manish Dayal, which has been sub-titled The Book of Carol.
