Daryl Dixon Walking Dead

Another entry into Robert Kirkman's zombie-filled universe is here with AMC's The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon

Norman Reedus' motorcycle-riding, undead-slaying fan-favorite character leads this star-studded cast, this time in a spin-off of his own. 

The show shares a continuity with the original series, taking place after The Walking Dead's TV finale. 

After leaving the Commonwealth in the original series, Daryl Dixon takes place in France as Daryl washes ashore in the country that was the origin of the franchise's zombie virus.

Norman Reedus is back as Daryl Dixon, waking up on the coast of France with no recollection of how he got there. The Walking Dead spin-off follows Reedus' beloved character from the original series as he tries to piece together just how he got there and how he can get home. 

Aside from being a member of the original Walking Dead cast (and a popular fan cast for the MCU's Ghost Rider), Reedus is best known for his work in The Boondock Saints, Blade II, and the video game Death Stranding.

Romain Levi's Codron serves as the secondary antagonist of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. The Walking Dead spin-off marks the character's debut. Codron is a high-ranking soldier in the overbearing military group The Cause, working under Anne Charrier's Genet.

Louis Puech Scigliuzzi - Laurent

Laurent Walking Dead
Louis Puech Scigliuzzi

Louis Puech Scigliuzzi portrays Laurent in the zombie-filled epic. This new character in the franchise is an 11-year-old boy who was born just as the (as he calls them) "hungry ones" started to rise. For much of his young life, Laurent has lived in an abbey under the protection of nuns, including Laika Blanc Francard's Sylvie. 

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon marks Scigliuzzi's on-screen debut. 

Paloma - Coco

Coco (played by French drag queen Paloma) is an entertainer working in Quinn's nightclub, Demimonde. She is a wholly new character making her debut in Daryl Dixon with little known about what her life was like before the zombie outbreak. 

Paloma is a renowned French drag star and entertainer. She is best known for winning Season 1 of Drag Race France

Melissa McBride - Carol Peletier

Fan favorite Walking Dead alum Melissa McBride will seemingly be back in Daryl Dixon as Carol Peletier. McBride previously departed a past version of the spin-off that was set to focus on Carol's relationship but was revealed to return thanks to a set photo of the two actors together. How Carol plays into the story remains unknown, but it seems unlikely that she somehow also made the trip to the shores of France. 

McBride has been a member of The Walking Dead franchise since the first season of the TV series but has also appeared in other titles like The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys and The Mist.

Gilbert Glenn Brown - Jones

Mystery surrounds Gilbert Glenn Brown's Jones in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. Making his franchise debut in the series, Jones has only been tagged as being a survivor in his mid-to-late 30s. 

Brown's past credits include DC's Stargirl, The Young and the Restless, and the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect

Cailey Fleming - Judith Grimes

Judith Walking Dead
Cailey Fleming

Cailey Fleming will return in the Daryl-centric spin-off as her Walking Dead character Judith Grimes. Judith is the young daughter of former series protagonist Rick Grimes, coming into the care of Daryl after the death of her father. She lived with Daryl and Carol in the Commonwealth but will supposedly get separated from her surrogate uncle after he leaves the settlement and eventually washes up in France. 

Fleming previously played Judith in the mainline Walking Dead series but has also appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Loki, and Preacher

William Sciortino

William Sciortino plays an undisclosed role in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon but assumedly will be a survivor of some sort in zombie-infested France. 

Sciortino's past appearances include Kill Ben Lyk and The Counsel

Avant Strangel

Avant Strangel will appear as a radio operator in Daryl Dixon. Given the military rule over the city of Paris and militia movements growing in the city like the Union of Hope, surely, Strangel's character will provide some crucial information in the fight to reclaim the city. 

Strangel is a native of France, appearing in the French TV series Mission and La Garconne


The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon premieres on Sunday, September 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET on AMC.
