As The Walking Dead’s final season airs on OCS tonight, Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride – who play Daryl and Carol respectively – discuss their upcoming spin-off.
The first part of season 11 of The Walking Dead begins broadcasting today on OCS. On this occasion, Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride – the interpreters of Daryl and Carol – confided in the site TheWrap on the future of their characters in their spin-off which does not yet have a title.
The end of the series is still far in the mind of Melissa McBride, it has not yet been shot. “We still have a lot of episodes to do and I don’t really think about it“confides the actress.
Difficult indeed for Melissa McBride to project herself on this end, while her adventure in The Walking Dead universe will continue alongside Norman Reedus in a spin-off. No information has yet filtered out about this project, other than that it will focus on both of them. Presumably other The Walking Dead characters will make an appearance there, but it’s far too early to know which ones.
Norman Reedus, however, gives some clues about the contours that the series is starting to take:
When we come back I think it will be different visually. It will be another series, with a different sensitivity.
While a certain tension has settled between Daryl and Carol since the end of season 10, Melissa McBride wishes to calm any concerns. “These two are so loyal to each other that anything can happen. They don’t have to tell each other everything. There is just a great unspoken understanding between the two of them and a loyalty that doesn’t have to be explained or justified.“she told the site.
And to conclude on an optimistic note: “It’s just cool. And that’s what I like about them. And I hope it will always stay that way.”
