The upcoming spinoff series, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, was initially planned to take place in the Midwest of the United States, featuring Daryl meeting different survivors in each episode. However, executive producer Greg Nicotero disclosed that the show has now shifted its setting to France. The new storyline follows Daryl's journey to return home to Alexandria, Virginia, while tasked with protecting a young boy who could potentially save humanity. This change in location opens up fresh opportunities to explore new concepts and introduces variant zombies. Despite the shift, the spinoff promises to be a unique addition to the franchise.
