'Walking Dead' Creator Finally Confirms If Norman Reedus' Character Daryl Is Gay Or Straight

Fans have been wondering about Daryl Dixon’s sexuality on The Walking Dead for months now as the character (played by Norman Reedus) has some amazing chemistry with Carol (Melissa McBride), and nothing has ever happened!

After the mid-season finale aired last night, comic book creator Robert Kirkman revealed the answer to the big question on The Talking Dead – and Carol and Daryl fans can rejoice!

“We play Daryl Dixon as being somewhat asexual on the show. He’s a very introverted character and I think that’s some of his appeal. I do have to clear something up, though: in the letter column of the comic book that I do, I mentioned that there was a possibility early on about making Daryl Dixon’s character gay,” Robert said. “It caused quite a hubbub online and I just wanted to clarify that the possibility is there and that I would have been fine with it, the network would have been fine with it, but we ultimately didn’t do that. I can make it official: Daryl Dixon is straight.”

Robert also added that a “very prominent gay character from the comics” will be introduced later in season five.

    It never occurred to me that Darryl might be gay. I’m glad he’s not.

    It’s the end of the world. Zombie’s are out there. Bad people are out there. I’m glad that the guy who has my back isn’t gay (wink wink)….I’m glad he’s not gay. I hate it when they add things to characters just for the sake of adding them. I also don’t want Daryl to be with someone because that will get him killed. Daryl just keep being Daryl…
