In April, reports were doing the round that the producers had fired Reedus from the show after a tiff, but that information too turned out to be fake.
"Shortly after the airing of the fourth season finale of AMC's popular zombie-themed TV drama The Walking Dead on 30 March 2014, an event that drew an estimated audience of 15.7 million viewers, word began to circulate that actor Norman Reedus, who portrays the character of Daryl Dixon in that show, had just been fired after a disagreement with producers and would be replaced in his role by another actor in the upcoming season," Snopes.com reported.
But the site also added that the news is not true and it might have originated with an April Fool's prank on social networking site.
