The Walking Dead spinoff, Daryl Dixon, takes place after the main show's conclusion. In episode 1, it is revealed that 12 years have passed since the zombie outbreak. This places Daryl Dixon after the events of The Walking Dead: World Beyond and Fear The Walking Dead season 8, part 1. The one-year time jump allows for potential cameos from main characters and avoids the need to make Norman Reedus visibly older. However, this creates a slight inconsistency with The Walking Dead: Dead City, which is set 5-6 years after the main show.
