The vast universe of The Walking Dead is about to broaden even more with the eagerly awaited second season of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. 

The debut season of The Walking Dead spinoff concluded with Daryl (Norman Reedus) finding himself stranded in France after veering off course while searching for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira). Meanwhile, Carol (Melissa McBride) endeavors to track down Daryl near Freeport, Maine, only to discover his abandoned motorcycle.

As Carol resumes her active role and sets out to locate Daryl, it's apparent that her significance will be amplified in Season 2, which is appropriately titled "The Book of Carol." Fans are eagerly awaiting the release date for the upcoming season, which will see the return of familiar faces alongside exciting new additions to the cast.

Showrunner David Zabel shared with ComicBook after the 2023 finale, "It was always the hope and the desire that we would get Melissa onto the show in Season 1, in whatever version she was ready to do. That was always what I wanted to do and what everybody wanted. Norman wanted it, [Gimple] wanted it, we all wanted it."

"So it was just a matter of working out what the show was going to be and then seeing how we could include her because we love the character, and we love Melissa, and we love the dynamic of Daryl and Carol together. So from the point where I started participating on the show, that was always the conversation," Zabel added.
