Terry Crews says he'd love to do a 'Walking Dead' show with Carol now that Melissa McBride isn't doing the Daryl spin-off anymore

  • Terry Crews has an idea for a "TWD" spin-off with Melissa McBride who plays Carol.
  • He told Insider that maybe their characters can pair up since she's no longer attached to the Daryl spin-off.
  • Crews, who stars on "Tales of TWD," says he could see Joe and Daryl Dixon mixing it up, too.

If Carol and Daryl can't have a "Walking Dead" spin-off together, Terry Crews, the newest member of the "Walking Dead" universe, will gladly take Daryl's place.

"She may not be in this Daryl spin-off as they originally planned," Terry Crews told Insider over Zoom while discussing his involvement in the latest spin-off, "Tales of the Walking Dead." "But what would be welcoming is if there was some way she could do something — if I come back and we do some more things."

"I'm already seeing it," added Crews, who plays a doomsday planner named Joe on "Tales" during the early days of the apocalypse. "It's so, so amazing."

First announced in September 2020, the former untitled "Carol and Daryl" spinoff was announced as a series that would further explore the deep bond between Carol (McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus).

In April, AMC confirmed to Insider in a statement that McBride was departing spinoff, which will now be set and filmed in Europe.

According to AMC, "relocating to Europe became logistically untenable for Melissa at this time."

Reedus told fans during the "TWD" panel at July's San Diego Comic-Con that "the Carol/Daryl story isn't over yet," suggesting there are plans for something else down the line. 

If there is, that appeared to be news to McBride. Seated next to Reedus during the panel, the "TWD" star gave a few quizzical looks at the mention of their story continuing.

One of the only surviving "TWD" characters from the show's pilot, if anyone deserves a spin-off, it's McBride whose character was originally supposed to be killed off the show years ago

Crews spoke highly of McBride and her portrayal of Carol Peletier, telling Insider he'd be upset if her character doesn't survive the final eight episodes of "TWD," airing this fall.

"I would be devastated if something happened to her," Crews said of McBride's character. "The way she was an abused wife and then she found her strength and became a super leader. It was like, wow. Your personality isn't permanent."

"It's a beautiful arc. I would hate if anything happened to her," he added.

If Carol survives "TWD," maybe she should team up with Crews' Joe. Crews told us he hopes his character could be related to Tyreese (Chad Coleman) who Carol spent a lot of time with on the series while split up from the group.

Crews believes his episode of "Tales" probably takes place around the Governor's reign of terror in between seasons three and four. If Joe stayed in Michigan, he's not too far from Carol's current location at the Commonwealth in Ohio.

If a Joe and Carol series isn't in the cards, Crews has other ideas.

"I love this character. I love who he is and I would just love to see him somehow mixed up in the actual flagship world of 'The Walking Dead,'" Crews told Insider of his "TWD" universe character Joe.

"Listen, just meeting Norman Reedus, I was like, 'Man, we could get down,'" Crews said, adding, "We can do some real damage."
