Daryl Dixon is a well-known name within The Walking Dead universe. Portrayed by fan-favorite actor Norman Reedus since the first season of the main series, Daryl has made a long journey to becoming a much better person from his first introduction. After the series finale of The Walking Dead, Daryl embarked on a brand new, unplanned adventure in France. The spinoff The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon has been renewed for a second season. Has the premiere date been set?
AMC announced the second season of Daryl Dixon ahead of the first’s premiere. This bold move proved to be an excellent decision, as the debut season was met with critical and viewer praise. Set and filmed in France, Daryl Dixon is a fresh take on the apocalyptic world of TWDU.
The second season began filming shortly after the first season wrapped, and Deadline reported that AMC struck a deal with SAG-AFTRA to continue production. This is great news for viewers anticipating the new season that will reintroduce fan-favorite Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) into the story.
When will Daryl Dixon season 2 release?
Pending no further delays, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon will premiere in 2024. This is according to the first teaser for the second season, which features Carol and a peek into what her story will entail in the upcoming season. An exact date has yet to be announced by AMC, but the first season began in September 2023, so the second may premiere that same month, but this is purely speculation on my part.
The new season has been subtitled The Book of Carol, and the teaser shows that after Daryl didn’t return in a week, as promised during their radio call in Daryl Dixon S1, she set out in search of him. She arrives in Maine, as that is the last known location of her best friend, and arrives at the job site where Daryl was wrangling walkers in exchange for fuel. Things go sideways for him, and that is when he is placed on the ship bound for France.
The new season will feature Carol’s search for Daryl as he, still in France, continues to aid his new friends, Laurent (Louis Puech Scigliuzzi) and Isabelle (Clémence Poésy). And hopefully, the long-awaited reunion between these two characters.
