Two spin-offs in The Walking Dead universe, Daryl Dixon and The Ones Who Live, and the television adaptation of Interview with the Vampire, will resume production following an agreement between AMC Networks and SAG-AFTRA. As part of interim agreements with AMC, the three shows will continue filming (H/T Deadline for the story). The deal is unique to the three shows instead of a collective decision between the guild and network. It is understood that AMC Networks green-lit the agreement.
“We greatly value the work of our creative partners and hope these disputes can be resolved as quickly and fairly as possible,” AMC Networks CEO Dolan said earlier in the month. “In the short term, the reality for AMC Networks is that we have a pipeline of finished shows that will allow us to continue to serve our viewers across all of our platforms for the remainder of this year and well into 2024.”
The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, according to an official synopsis via Comic Book, represents “an epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world. Kept apart by distance. By an unstoppable power. By the ghosts of who they were. Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built on a war against the dead… And ultimately, a war against the living.”
The Daryl Dixon spin-off takes Norman Reedus into the heartland of a post-pandemic Paris as he fights new variants of walkers that “change all the rules.”
Interview with the Vampire resumes production on Season 2. If it sounds familiar, then you’d be correct in thinking the series was adapted into the 1994 film with Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt, based on the 1976 novel by Anne Rice.
