The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus declares the fans keep him in the series, after several cullings throughout The Walking Dead.

Norman Reedus, who plays the ass-kicking crossbower, Daryl Dixon, in AMC’s hit television series The Walking Dead has declared that the writers and showrunners are keeping him in the series because the “fans keep Daryl alive.”

“Because we’re in a zombie apocalypse and anyone can go at any time, it sort of keeps us fresh and on our toes.”

Reedus spoke to the Associated Press over the weekend and had quite a lot to say regarding Daryl’s status on The Walking Dead.

Reedus commented, “You see series and they last a long time and sometimes the writing gets lazy or the acting gets lazy. Because we’re in a zombie apocalypse and anyone can go at any time, it sort of keeps us fresh and on our toes.”

But, could Daryl be heading for the chopping block?

Glenn Mazzara recently spoke out about how Carol and Carl had been on the “chopping block” for when they wrote season 3, but it appears as though Daryl will definitely be staying for the remainder of season at the very least.

Reedus confirmed he will be alive and hopefully well come the end of season 3 as Reedus commented, “[They’re] keeping me on the show.”

If Daryl Dixon were to die though, it appears as though Laurie Holden would love to pick up the role in a next life. Holden jokes, “I want to be Daryl Dixon in my next life. He’s sexy and he’s got the rugged thing going on.”

Fans were out in force in their “If Daryl dies we riot!” t-shirts at Paleyfest, and with that continuing backing, we hope that Norman Reedus continues as Daryl Dixon, one of the most integral characters within The Walking Dead.

Would you riot if Daryl were to be killed off? And, who do you think might be the next character to be killed off in The Walking Dead?

The Walking Dead returns this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC with the episode, “Arrow on the Doorpost,” where Daryl looks set for another nail-biting episode.

    I wouldn’t mind too much. It would make things interesting. And to be honest, I want Carl to die. He’s caused a lot of trouble for people.

      But now he’s stopped and he’s turning into a badass, so I don’t see your point.

        Not really. Now he goes around killing anything that’s not his group. He’s gone psycho and it’s going to cost the group.

    I would definitely be a little less interested in the show if Daryl were to be killed off. Though, I am sort of a glutton for the shock factor. But, since Carl got Dale killed, he’s already dead to me, so I’m fine with him being the next to go. It’s getting hard, though, because aside from him, I’m pretty attached to everyone who’s left in the group!

    i really dont get the fascination. MIchonne is much more of a Bad-A character.

    I can’t say that I’d watch if Daryl died, but that’s to each their own really. Everyone has their own reasons for watching and while I love the show as a whole, Daryl has my proverbial heart on TV (for this show anyway, I do adore Tiggy on SOA too).

    • Clare

      Yea I totally agree o.o he is an important character tho he does have the lead rule in my eyes he is the best

  • Matt VanSplinter

    i wouldn’t watch the show anymore if daryl died he’s the best on the show and yes i would riot! and i think carol will be the next to die. she doesn’t carry a knife or gun!

  • 7Starrchasers

    I don’t know how I would feel about the show if Daryl dies…

    I say if Daryl or Glen died I would be a very unhappy person

  • Mike

    I’m a huge Daryl fan, and I think he’ll stay on for the next couple of seasons but I think in the last season he will die sacrificing himself for someone :( At least it’s heroic, T-Dog style
