.... unpredictability keeps viewers on the edge of their seats and the shows' stars in a constant state of alertness.
"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," Norman Reedus told The Associated Press Friday.
Fans lined up around the block to watch a panel discussion with Reedus and his co-stars at Paleyfest, the annual Southern California TV celebration. Many in the crowd showed their support for Reedus' crossbow-wielding character, Daryl Dixon, with their "If Daryl dies we riot!" T-shirts.
The 44-year-old actor says his vocal fan base is responsible for his character's impressive longevity in a series that seems to have no qualms in axing its most popular characters.
"Hell yes. Oh my god, yes," he said. "(They're) keeping me on the show."
"The Walking Dead" focuses on a rag-tag band of surviving refugees, including unruly brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon, who were not part of the series' comic book origins.

If Daryl dies, I cancel my cable.
I'm tiring of the "governor" and want to see that psycho killed off as soon as possible and let the prison group move on down the road to a new adventure.......
Thanks for following the rules.
Chuck Norris has nightmares about Daryl Dixon.
Hehe Good one!
Daryl is my favorite character on the show. It’s the ONLY thing my wife and I make it a point to watch on TV at all. Our entire family loves it.(even the kids)
If only they could combine Walking Dead with Justified.
The showdown between Raylan and the Governor would be epic.
SO...how long do the zombies wander around after they are zombified.
It couldn’t be much longer than it would take for a dead body to decompose,right?
That’s why I’m staying in the north for the zombie apocalypse. They’ll keep longer but you would have all winter for foraging. Plus during the winter you could clear large areas by knocking the heads off the frozen meatcicles.
I want thta black moddy looking woman to go, she can;t act, hardly ever speaks, and just stands there looking all mooody with a pissed off face.
Infact one of the worst actors I have ever seen on TV, why they have her is beyond me and as for the Gov, I agree I’m getting tired of the fool.
If Daryl goes then I stop watching, he makes the show and is the kind of guy you want in this situation , not a girlie boy pansy
my oldest boy and my wife and I all love to watch it.
Daryl goes then this family goes.
Get rid of the moody black woman who can;t act and the Gov is getting boring.
Need Daryl to go out and see him hunt more and maybe fish, show the country what is needed
Gee, didja ever think that was the character created for her by the writers? Nah, probably not.......
As I understand it Michonne is pretty true to the character as written into the comic book.
you picked only a few words I said, why?
She can;t even do what she does very well, that was the point.
Again she is awful, can;t act no wonder they don;t give her much to say and hopefully Rick sorts her out or the walking dead do.
If that's what yer lookin' for then maybe you need to be watchin' the Bass Masters or Outdoor Life Network..............
But, but what about Merle...(sniff)
The Guv wouldn’t even clear leather.....
Just what the hell are you about? Have you been drinking or something?
Just wondering why you are writing what you are over an opinion over a TV show.
Yes I;d like to see Daryl get out there more hunting etc for the crew, you don;t like what I like then so be it but stop being foolish and wise up.
The Gov has lost it, I think he;s on his way out soon and the blond woman takes over. Forget her name now.
After Raylan said something cool like, “Didn’t your mamma ever tell you not to play with guns. You might put an eye out.”
you’re a barrel of laughs
Just tuned in,and got my popcorn. Merle is my favorite. Then again I always pulled for Vader in all the Star Wars episodes. Lol.
I hope Daryl dies a long and painful death and that all the tee vee herd goes over the cliff in insanity. : )
Michonne is one of the best characters on the show. She doesn’t follow along and questions why. I’m getting tired of Andrea. For all of the mouthing off she does about not wanting to be treated like a woman, she sure is acting like one.
If Daryl dies, I cancel my cable.
I don’t know about cancelling cable, but I’d be highly pissed off. Daryl should continue living and make a major contribution to surviving humanity’s gene pool.
Indeed. I watched S1 & 2 on Netflix and got hooked. Then I tried waiting on S3, but couldn’t do it. I upped my pkg to include AMC so I could watch it on TV. and yes, I know I could watch it on the ‘net but it was so unappealing to me, I just got the channel. :)
I view Andrea as a typical liberal. I think in the comics she was a civil rights lawyer before the zombie apocalypse happened, so maybe that explains some things about her. ;)
Wow now there’s a surprise I wasn’t expecting. I figured that guy was long dead.
is that the guy from the first episode
Yeah. The son is missing.
On the wall was written “Zach turned” . Was that his sons name?
And we thought Rick was going loony.
Is this a bit like the Twilight fandom??
No kidding! Under the circumstances, can ya blame them.
Vampires are pansies.
For some I think when it comes to Daryl. Lol.
Vampire Zombies are coming! :p
I wonder if they’re going to run into the guy they left on the road again?
Well. There’s room in the car for him.
LOL well there’s that question answered.
Lol. I saw the backpack on the side of the road. However,why did they stop on the side of the road just before the end of the show?
They had to pick up the backpack.
I think Morgan’s son’s name is Duane.
Ahh. That makes sense. Thanks.
Thanks. I figured the reason for his actions was he had lost his son.
Time to green light "Zombie Bass Masters".
