Why Daryl Dixon Isn't Premiering Early

is the first spinoff to premiere at the same time on both AMC and AMC+. , meaning viewers were watching the series kick off on different nights. As isn't premiering early like previous spinoffs, all viewers will be watching the show begin at the same time.

It's possible the performance of premiering episodes early on AMC+ has influenced AMC to take a different approach to Daryl's spinoff.

While it's unclear if viewership is impacted by episodes getting launched on AMC+ early, AMC may be hoping one big premiere night will help bring more viewers in overall. If that's the case, then it remains to be seen if future episodes of the show will air early, or if they'll all be available Sunday nights.

Daryl is also the most popular original character in 's TV universe. This could have influenced AMC to make sure the premiere of his show is special by starting on the same night across cable and streaming. It also helps facilitate discussion of the premiere, since all who want to see it will be watching at the same time. It seems AMC is determined to show just how much of an event 's premiere will be, and what it means for the future of the franchise.
