Fans have been worrying that Daryl Dixon’s days were numbered on The Walking Dead. This was started with reports that actor Norman Reedus had put his Atlanta home up for sale.
In a recent interview Reedus squashed these rumors by admitting “that’s not even my house. It’s a rumor.” So fans can rest easy that Daryl’s death isn’t imminent, or at least as imminent as they were thinking.
The Walking Dead is set to begin filming season 6 next week and will premiere in October. Look for the companion series Fear The Walking Dead later this summer.
Over the past couple of weeks, The Walking Dead creator has revealed a few bits and pieces about the series.
First he dispelled a fan theory about the series. Some fans think that Rick Grimes is still at the hospital in a coma, and that the entire series has been a sort of a dream sequence. Kirkman was quick to dispel this theory.
Another fan theory is that fan favorite character Daryl Dixon is homosexual. There have been reports of this since summer, but Kirkman has put an end to it. ” 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”. He explained. So there is something of note there, I guess we will just have to wait and see.
Lastly, many fans thought we got a glimpse at the next big villain Negan early in this season. This was quickly explained to not be the case. Kirkman went on to say that we still have a while to go until we see Negan, and that it will not be during this season. I expect we might hear of him or get a glimpse of him in the later end of next season, but my prediction is that Negan wont become a major character in the show until season 7. What do you think?
