Melissa McBride Returns As Carol In Season 2 Of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon
Yesterday’s New York Comic Con revealed some good news relating to The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. Not only was it confirmed that there will be a season 2, but also that Melissa McBride will reprise her role as Carol Peletier in the show. Titled The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon – The Book of Carol, fans can expect it to premiere in 2024.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon to feature Melissa McBride in season 2
Melissa McBride will reprise her fan-favorite role as Carol Peletier in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon season 2. The news was announced at New York Comic Con on Thursday and will undoubtedly be applauded by fans. Meanwhile, McBride has played the role of Carol in the flagship series for 11 seasons alongside Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon.
The news broke ahead of the season 1 finale on Sunday, October 15, at 9 pm ET/PT on AMC and AMC+. Moreover, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon has been a ratings success and became the most-viewed premiere in the history of AMC+. It is likely to be the most-viewed single season of any show on the streaming platform. Its popularity no doubt relates to the unique setting for the series, as Daryl is washed ashore in France.
Melissa McBride on Carol’s story
Speaking of her appearance in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon – The Book Of Carol, Melissa McBride said she has always known there was much more to be told of Carol’s story, adding, “I felt her so unsettled when we last saw her, as she watched her best friend, Daryl, ride away.”
Apart or (hopefully!) together, their stories run deep, and I’m so excited to continue Carol’s journey here. This team of storytellers have done amazing work to land these two established characters in an entirely new world to them, and I’m loving the discoveries!
Meanwhile, season 2 of Daryl Dixon is currently in production in France and is set to premiere sometime in 2024. The season will star Reedus, McBride, Clémence Poésy, Louis Puech Scigliuzzi, Laika Blanc Francard, Anne Charrier, Romain Levi and Eriq Ebouaney.
In season 1, Daryl is washed ashore in France and is struggling to learn how he ended up there. Over the episodes, Reedus’ character journeys through a broken France, trying to find a way to get back home. However, the people he meets along the way will complicate his ultimate plan of returning to America.
More The Walking Dead to look forward to
Meanwhile, fans don’t have long to wait for another series in The Walking Dead universe. Part 2 of the final season 8 of Fear the Walking Dead premieres on Sunday, October 22, at 9 pm ET/PT on AMC and AMC+.
As noted by Futon Critic, The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, starring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira will premiere at some stage in February 2024.
