Daryl and Carol get a new friend.
The second season of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon–the Norman Reedus-led TWD spinoff–is aiming for a 2024 debut on AMC, and this week a new actor signed up for the zombie battles to come, according to a report on Deadline.
The next season–subtitled The Book of Carol–brings Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier character back into the TWD universe. Joining the two leads will be Manish Daval (The Resident) in the major recurring role of Ash–described as an engineer from Boston who moves to his family weekend house in Maine after the start of the apocalypse.
In the show, Ash “lives by a strict schedule based mostly around his daily flights in a retrofitted single-engine plane and his mysterious visits to his backyard greenhouse.”
The first season of Daryl Dixon–led by showrunner David Zabel–follows Dixon as he washes ashore in France, with no clue how he got there. During his struggles to return home, Dixon is recruited to guide a young boy named Laurent across the country overrun by the undead.
The cast is rounded out by Clemence Poesy, Adam Nagaitis, Anne Charrier, Eriq Ebanouey, Laika Blanc Francard, Romain Levy and Louis Puech Scigliuzzi.
