The Walking Dead Daryl Dixon

Production on ‘Walking Dead’ Spinoff “Raise of the Dead” Underway in France

AMC’s upcoming “Raise of the Dead” series (working title “Pilgrim”) is set to wrap production in February 2023, after starting filming in October 2022 in France and Ireland. The show is a spinoff of AMC’s popular series “The Walking Dead,” which follows a group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies. “The Walking Dead” has spawned a number of spinoff series, including “Fear the Walking Dead” and “The Walking Dead: World Beyond.”

One of the central characters in “Raise of the Dead” is Daryl, played by Norman Reedus. Daryl has been a fan favorite on “The Walking Dead” since the show’s inception, and Reedus has become a household name for his portrayal of the rugged, loner character. In “Raise of the Dead,” Daryl finds himself in a new environment in France, where he must adapt to a different culture and way of life.

It is worth mentioning that the character of Daryl was not originally included in the “The Walking Dead” comic book series. He was created specifically for the TV show and has since become a central character and fan favorite. Despite not being based on a character from the comics, Daryl’s arc has proven to be a compelling addition to the “The Walking Dead” universe.

Walking Dead Veterans Return

The show is being produced by Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, and Angela Kang, with David Zabel serving as showrunner. Gimple and Kirkman are both veterans of “The Walking Dead” franchise, with Gimple serving as showrunner on the original series and Kirkman being the creator of the comic book series on which the show is based. Kang has also worked on “The Walking Dead” as a writer and executive producer.
