THE WALKING DEAD: Is Daryl Dixon Gay? Robert Kirkman Says "It's Been Discussed"

While it appeared as if Daryl Dixon had found love with Carol a couple of seasons ago in The Walking Dead, comic book creator Robert Kirkman has commented on the theory that fan-favourite character Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) could in fact be gay. Read on for further details!

It didn't take long for Daryl Dixon to become one of The Walking Dead's most interesting and beloved characters, and the episodes focusing on him have been some of the best to date. Though he has come close to embarking on what appeared to be romantic relationships with Carol, and to a much lesser extent Beth, Robert Kirkman revealed in the latest issue of The Walking Dead comic book that there's every chance he could in fact be gay.

"All I can say is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing...we’ll tackle it in the show."

Given the upbringing he had with a brother like Merle, a story decision like this could prove to be fascinating and it would undoubtedly be a bold move for the AMC series. However, would the network allow it? "For the record, they absolutely would," Kirkman says.
