The question of Daryl Dixon's sexuality in The Walking Dead has come up more than a couple times as fans of the series have speculated there might be something with Daryl and Carol, most recently Daryl and Beth, and now it's a possibilty the character might even be gay.
As Daryl has yet to hook up with anyone on the show, a reader of The Walking Dead comic book asked creator Robert Kirkman if there is a chance Daryl is gay in the TV series.
Kirkman responded mentioning it's been discussed.
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.
Kirkman then reponded if the network, AMC, would be okay with Daryle being gay.
For the record, they absolutely would.
