‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 Spoilers: One Of The Men Will Be Gay, But It Won’t Be Daryl? [VIDEO]
After rumors have been going around on the possibility of Daryl being gay on The Walking Dead, it looks like that won’t be happening- at least not for Daryl.
On Tuesday, TV Line mentioned that someone on the show will be coming out of the closet and it will be a male. There’s no word yet on which male or when it will happen, but it can give fans something to think about for a while especially since Daryl is likely out of the picture.
“We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven’t revealed,” showrunner Scott M. Gimple said. “[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.”
Gimple went on about the type of person Daryl is, and whether or not he ends up leaning towards a specific gender, he’ll likely be opening himself up more either way.
“He is a very guided, very closed-off individual in a lot of ways,” the showrunner said. “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.”
The Walking Dead Season 5 is expected to premiere on Sunday, October 12 on AMC.
