The Walking Dead Spoilers: Daryl’s Sexuality Confirmed, New Gay Character Set To Debut When Show Returns

Despite rumours to the contrary, straight girls who are in love with Daryl can rest easy. Norman Reedus’ character on the AMC drama has been confirmed to be straight.

The news was confirmed by the show’s creator Robert Kirkman on last night’s episode of Talking Dead.

“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,” Kirkman explained. “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.”

Kirkman also confirmed that a “prominent” gay character from the comics would appear in the second half of the show’s fifth season. Many are speculating that it will be Aaron from the Alexandria Safe-Zone.
