It’s been 13 years since The Walking Dead infected audiences with zombie fever and helped kick-start a decades-long obsession with stories of survival among the undead. Even in 2023, the craze has yet to die out, with three Walking Dead spinoffs premiering in just the last three years. Now, it’s Daryl Dixon’s turn. The gruff and beloved OG character is headed to France for a brand new storyline, meaning even if you haven’t kept up with the show over the last 13 years, you can still tune in to The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon.
