AMC Networks has announced second season renewals for two series in the expanding Walking Dead Universe, including “The Walking Dead: Dead City” and “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon.” The announcement was made this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. The renewal for “Dead City,” starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, comes just ahead of the show’s season one finale, which will premiere on Sunday, July 23 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC and AMC+. The highly anticipated debut of “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon,” starring Norman Reedus, is set for September 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC and AMC+.

“This next chapter in the Walking Dead Universe continues to thrive with a terrific inaugural season for ‘Dead City’ and highly anticipated new journey for fan-favorite character Daryl Dixon coming in September,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. “We can’t wait to bring ‘Dead City’ fans back to the epicenter of Manhattan for more zip-lining action with Maggie and Negan. And, ahead of its debut, we’re thrilled to double down on Daryl as we bring the apocalypse to France, transforming Notre Dame, Pont du Gard, and other iconic locales into an apocalyptic landscape unlike anything we’ve seen before.”

The six-episode first season of “The Walking Dead: Dead City” follows the popular Maggie (Cohan) and Negan (Morgan) characters traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.

In “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon,” Daryl (Reedus) washes ashore in France and struggles to piece together how he got there and why. The series tracks his journey across a broken but resilient France as he hopes to find a way back home. As he makes the journey, though, the connections he forms along the way complicate his ultimate plan.

Also in the Walking Dead Universe, the second half of the eighth and final season of “Fear the Walking Dead” returns this Fall, and, “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live,” the Rick and Michonne series starring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira, is set to premiere in 2024.
