In a recent interview with Leo Edith, Reedus teases that viewers might see a few familiar faces in Daryl’s spin-off “The Walking Dead.” While the actor seems confident that Carol McBride will appear in the series at some point, Reedus also says, without naming any names, that Daryl may encounter characters who were not in the series. The walking dead for a while. Check out Reedus’ full comment below:
“Of course there will be a spin-off, and it will be me alone, and I will be on this mission, and [Daryl and Carol] will of course come back together later; and with other characters who are missing, I will probably run into.”
Throughout the 11th season of the zombie survival drama, several beloved characters died either from the bites of walkers or from human enemies. However, some of them just went missing. With fan favorite “Walking Dead” Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) leaving the show in season 9, Reedus may tease a reunion between them at some point in the show. Michonne (Danai Gurira) also left the show, deciding to try to find Rick after learning that he survived a seemingly fatal bridge explosion in season 9.

Rick, in particular, would be a welcome sight for many viewers, especially considering that the character was supposed to (and still is) getting his own series of side films. It is currently unknown when the spin-off of Daryl’s show will air, but at least fans of “The Walking Dead” can now be sure that at some point in the series a few familiar faces will appear.
