Some fans criticised the zombie drama's sophomore run, but Reedus told Entertainment Weekly that certain viewers "are going say whatever they're going to say".
"If we killed a zillion zombies last season everyone would say, 'There's no storyline, they don't talk enough' - so f**k 'em!" said the actor, who plays Daryl Dixon.
"I've been trying to get into Game of Thrones. I can't tell if it's the future or the past, but those motherf**kers talk the whole time. Do I gotta bitch about it, or am I going to watch it and enjoy? I'm going to watch it and enjoy."
However, Reedus did admit that the pace has "definitely [been] amped up" for The Walking Dead's next season.
"You have to talk to tell a story - it's not a cartoon," he insisted. "[But] the pace this season is definitely amped up. We're just talking faster."
The Walking Dead exec Glen Mazzara has also hinted at a "relentless", "very adrenalised" third season.
The series airs on FX in the UK and on AMC in the US.
