AMC is developing a series of zombie spinoffs like that the Walking Dead comes to an end. A spinoff has now lost its showrunner. Angela Kan |flagship series showrunner, the Walking DeadHe no longer acts in the same position for the Daryl and Carol spin-off.
In addition to Fear the walking deathAMC announced an anthology series entitled Tales of the Walking Deada series set in New York City Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohanand an untitled project in which Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride will reprise their legendary roles as Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier.
However, because the Daryl and Carol spinoff was being filmed in Europe, McBride was forced to withdraw from the show as she was unable to relocate. That claim sparked a lot of internet anger from the show’s fans, who blamed Reedus for making the decision to film in Europe. These followers blame Reedus for allegedly wanting to be closer to his family by including the German-American actress Diane Krueger.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan who plays Negan AMC’s The Walking Deadhas come to Reedus’ defense and blasted fans for causing internet anger without having access to all the facts.
“Attack the norm [Reedus] for crap he has NOTHING to do? Melissa made a call that was hers alone,” Morgan said. “She wants/needs a break. Respect that. Factors involved that are nobody’s business. Norm who gave you all more than anyone else. Just SHIT.”
Now the new Daryl and Carol — or let’s just call it the Daryl series, has taken another hit, eh meeting has reported that showrunner Angela Kang is quitting. Kang will be replaced by longtime “ER” showrunner David Zabel. Kang will continue to serve as executive producer on the series, but she will turn her attention to other AMC-related projects.
Without Carol, the focus of the series will be on Daryl. Zabel will be responsible for the creative adjustments currently being made to focus the show on Daryl without Carol. The show is scheduled to shoot this summer and premiere in 2023.
It’s unclear if this was due to fan anger at McBride’s departure, or if Kang made the ultimate decision to film the program in Europe. But the news of another blow to a series that has faced several difficulties from the start.
