Melissa McBride Exits The Walking Dead


Melissa McBride has officially dropped out of The Walking Dead spinoff Daryl and Carol.

According to AMC, the series will now focus solely on Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon.

"Melissa McBride has given life to one of the most interesting, real, human, and popular characters in The Walking Dead Universe."

An AMC spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.

"Unfortunately, she can no longer participate in the previously announced spinoff focused on the Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier characters."

"Which will be set and filmed in Europe this summer and premiere next year."

"Relocating to Europe became logistically untenable for Melissa at this time."

"We know fans will be disappointed by this news."

"But The Walking Dead Universe continues to grow and expand in exciting ways, and we very much hope to see Carol again shortly."

AMC announced in September 2020 that the main Walking Dead series would end with an expanded season 11.

However, the network also shared that McBride and Reedus would be continuing in the Walking Dead universe for their spinoff.

Shortly after the announcement, The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang opened up about details about the spinoff.

"There has been talking for a long time about a Darryl-Carol spinoff."

"And so that was something that we were working on well in advance of the news about the ending of the series."

She added, "They will be off on a different journey. However, moreover, that show will hopefully feel a little tonally fresh."

"They are just in a different stage of their lives, and it is more of a roadshow, which I think will be fun."
