A Daryl and Merle Dixon spin-off series? I bet that got your attention. At this weekend’s Fan Expo Vancouver, Michael Rooker - who played the recently deceased older brother on The Talking Dead - talked about the possibility of a Daryl and Merle spin-off comic, revealing:

If me and Norman had any more scenes than we already had in that series, it would already be the Merle and Daryl show. Robert Kirkman has a lot of things on his plate, and I don’t know if that thought has ever crossed his mind, but he’s a busy camper, and I haven’t talked to him about it.

Forget a comic, I want to see a television series!

Daryl and Merle don't actually appear in the comics and with Merle now being very much dead on the show, a spin-off would probably have to focus on the beginning of the zombie outbreak and their journey from the mountains of north Georgia to Atlanta.

Here's the full clip of the Rooker Q&A for you to check out:

Would you like to see the Dixon brothers reunited again? Leave me a comment and let me know what ideas you have for a Merle and Daryl spin-off show.
