Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon is a fan-favourite on AMC's post-apocalyptic zombie drama "The Walking Dead," and a number of hardcore fans have vowed to boycott the show if the character is killed off.

Like every other character on the show, Reedus is aware that his Daryl is also not safe, and recently when asked about his character's death, Reedus said he wouldn't want to die.

"I hope my character serves the story of the show. Nobody wants to go on the show, because it's really fun," Reedus told TheWrap's "Drinking with the Stars." "I think if they ever killed me on the show, I think I wouldn't want to die. I'd just want to walk up a hill, and walk down a hill. And as I get to the top, a little puppy would come out of the woods and follow me up and over the hill."

When "The Walking Dead" returns in October for season 6, fans will be introduced to two new characters Delvin and Tucker. Delvin is an African-American in his 20s who is said to be a cynic, while Tucker is a hardworking guy who values fairness.

It is not immediately known where Delvin and Tucker would fit in. They could either be Alexandria residents or members of a new group of survivors.

In the meantime, showrunner Scott Gimple revealed in a note to The Talking Dead that the next season would up the ante in regards to the threats faced by Rick Grimes and his group of survivors.

"Season 6 for a good while now, humans have been the bigger threat," he said in the note, reported Den of Geek. "At the start of our next season, that will change. I said the show reinvents itself every 8 eps, and we're doing it again, friendos. Now that these characters know they have what it takes to survive, what are they going to do with that power? How will they choose to live? Beyond answering those questions, we're currently putting into motion some of our most ambitious stuff yet, and things are going to get very big, loud, and scary."

"The Walking Dead" returns to AMC in October. Filming is scheduled to start in May.
