We’re rapidly approaching the end of AMC’s flagship The Walking Dead series. With just a couple more episodes until the big finale, thoughts are beginning to turn to what comes next for the long-running franchise.
The proposed Daryl & Carol spin-off has undergone a huge creative change following the loss of Melissa McBride as one of its co-leads. With Carol off the table, TWD‘s own Angela Kang stepped aside as showrunner, to be replaced by David Zabel (ER). The series premise also shifted focus, taking its no solo-lead character to Paris, France.
Overnight, it has been confirmed that two new cast members have boarded the series. Clémence Poésy, best known for Apple TV’s The Essex Serpent, joins the cast as Isabelle, a member of a “progressive religious group” who begins traveling with Daryl.
Poésy will be joined by Adam Nagaitis (Chernobyl) who joins the series as Quinn. The British born character has relocated to France and is now one of Paris’ most powerful black market smugglers.
Production is currently underway with the series expected to air in 2023.
