A big rumor has been flying around the Internet that "The Walking Dead's" Daryl Dixon might be gay, and that rumor only gets fueled when creator Robert Kirkman says cryptic things regarding it: “All I can say is that it’s been discussed."

Now, we finally know the reason why there's only speculation about Dixon's sexuality, and it has everything to do with who he is.

When talking to TV Line, showrunner Scott M. Gimple opened up on the topic:

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; he is a very guarded, very closed-off individual in a lot of ways.

Gimple went on to say that Dixon's sexuality isn't necessarily addressed in the upcoming season, but he is going to continue to grow closer to the other characters in the show, eventually "letting them see just who he is, in every way."

Additionally, the showrunner said there will be a gay character introduced to the show, but, in typical "Walking Dead" fashion, he would not reveal when.
