The Walking Dead fans, hold on to your hats, because The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon is now in production! After last seeing Daryl in the finale of The Walking Dead, we’ll be once again able to witness the bad-assery that is Daryl, but this time, in France. Let’s take a look at the teaser announcing production time.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Production Teaser
The Walking Dead YouTube account recently posted a teaser which revealed that the new spin-off of TWD family is in production. Take a look below! It’s not very long, but it definitely makes us excited for it to hit our screens.
The video starts off with an overview of buildings and a carriage led by horse about to enter a city gate after crossing a bridge. We then cut to the crew filming in what appears to be quite the chilly day. Warm coats and hats are being worn, but they seem to be very happy and focused to be working nonetheless. The shot cuts to standing walkers dressed in long, torn coats.
The clapperboard shows roll A245, scene V651, take 5, claps, and “action” is being called. We then switch to Daryl who is walking away from a what looks like a fort, surrounded by sand, and looks a lot like Le Mont-Saint-Michel, a tidal island in France. Perhaps the same location, but yet to be confirmed. We do know that France is the place where the series is both filmed and happening in, so that is left to be established.
When Will The Walking Dead: Daryl Spinoff Air?
We wrote about it a few months ago as we have very little information regarding this, but our estimate, and now with this confirmation of the series being in production, is that it looks like the first episode might hit our screens sometime in the last quarter of 2023. Production means that the crew is filming, and stand-Ins collaborate with the Director, Assistant Director, camera crew, and other members of the team to plan out the motions of the actors and the lighting setups for a scene before it is filmed. This process takes place during rehearsals. Stand-ins have the opportunity to collaborate more directly with the cast and crew of a production, and they may also work more frequently on a given project. Which means that there is still ways to go before post-production kicks in. but who knows! They might be filming and post-producing at a very fast pace, which has been known to happen with this series.
What is this new Spin-off about?
In the spinoff of The Walking Dead, Daryl’s reasons for departing on a worldwide expedition hint that he will be seeking for answers concerning the genesis of the zombie pandemic, the rationale behind the walkers’ evolutionary mutations, and the potential of a cure. These questions will be addressed in this Daryl spin-off. In addition to this, we are aware that the finale of The Walking Dead hinted that Daryl will be keeping a watch out for Rick and Michonne while he travels about, but the fact that he is currently in Europe may change the result of this scenario. We’ll just have to wait and see!
