In an interview with IGN, the fan favorite actor was asked about his feelings on the uproar that resulted after the finale's closing credits, saying: "Yeah! I mean, the truth of it is that it's very precious to us, what we're doing, and it's our thing we're doing out in the woods. It would almost be doing it a disservice to us to go around blabbing about it, because we put so much work into it, and it's so personal to us that we almost don't want to talk about it too much, because it's private and personal, and you'll see it."
Reedus continued, promising that fans will be satisfied.
"It's well worth the wait, that cliffhanger, I will say that. This season that we're doing now is going to answer every question, and it's well worth the wait -- well worth the wait."
As for fans reactions to the finale, he kind of sees all the discussion as a positive thing.
"Well, I mean, everyone's got an Instagram and a Facebook and a Twitter, and everybody wants to know everything right now. 'We deserve to know everything right now!' You know, cliffhangers have been happening ever since television started. And I like that there's so much enthusiasm for this show. Everybody's so invested in it, and we are too, but you make art sometimes to start conversation, and having people talk about what you did is kind of a compliment no matter what they're saying. So I get it. I mean, I like watching television and being pissed off and wanting to throw something through the TV too, but that's part of the excitement! I like that kind of thing. So I'll say it again: It's well worth the wait. You'll get it, and you may wish that you... [Laughs] You know what I mean. Sometimes you want things to happen, you don't want things to happen, and they happen, and you're like, 'DAMN!' So, you know, just be ready."
The critically acclaimed series returns later this year.
