Norman Reedus, who plays The Walking Dead’s fan favorite Daryl, the motorcycle riding, arrow-shooting, badass with a heart of gold, is now set to star in AMC’s new nonfiction motorcycle series ‘Ride’.
The series, which will air in six-one-hour episodes, will follow Reedus and a different riding companion in a different city each week as they explore the motorcycle culture of each destination. The series will highlight some of the best and brightest motorcycle craftsmen, Collectors and mechanics from around the country. ‘Ride’ will premier some time in 2016.
“I’m incredibly excited and thankful to AMC for giving me the opportunity to share a passion of mine with our fans, and hopefully a whole new audience.” Reedus continued in a statement released by AMC “I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows.”
Of course, Walking Dead fans are going to go a little crazy with the news that Reedus has signed on for another show. Once they realize there is plenty of time for him to film the series during the The Walking Dead’s seasonal filming breaks, they should feel more at ease. I look forward to seeing Reedus in the unscripted series, where his true personality can shine.
