When Robert Kirkman revealed that Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) might be gay, the fans made a big commotion about it, whether for it or against it. Showrunner Scott M. Gimple told TV Line that Daryl’s orientation won’t be revealed this year, but he is happy to see that fans are still talking about it.

“We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven’t revealed. [But] we’re not holding back information on Daryl’s sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there’s still a question as to what Daryl’s orientation is in Season 5 absolutely speaks to Daryl’s character; he is a very guarded, very closed-off individual in a lot of ways. We have been able to see him ever so slowly open up and show the other characters aspect by aspect as to what makes him tick. That’s been a very satisfying journey for all of us on the creative side to portray. [And] he’s still on that journey.” He adds, “This is a character who is going to continue to grow closer to the other characters and let his guard down, and let them see just who he is, in every way.”

Although these pics were meant for Reedus to show off his silly side, these may be taken out of context.
