Ride With Norman Reedus has been renewed for a second season at AMC, the network announced Friday.
Season 2 will consist of six one-hour episodes featuring The Walking Dead actor and motorcycle enthusiast Reedus as he takes viewers on the open road, traveling to amazing places and sampling local cultures.
“The reaction to Ride has been incredibly positive,” Reedus said in the statement. “I am glad to be able to show audiences a different side of me and we have gotten a great response to the candid conversation and the fact that it’s obviously not scripted. I feel like we are just getting started and there are so many amazing places we have yet to go — the opportunities for the show are endless.”
Season 1 of Ride With Norman Reedus featured actors Balthazar Getty and Peter Fonda filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, Mastodon singer/guitarist Brent Hinds, artist Jake Lamagno, custom bike builder Jason Paul Michaels and artist/biker Imogen Lehtonen journeying to locales such as Death Valley, the Pacific Coast Highway, Appalachia, Louisiana, Texas and the Florida Keys.
Reedus and his guests took in the local flavor on their travels and went dune-buggying, rode a bike of the future, visited a moonshine distillery, met with a high voodoo priestess and raced Porta Potties
Reedus is best known for starring as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s worldwide sensation, The Walking Dead, which starts its seventh season October 23. Ride with Norman Reedus is produced by Left/Right Productions. Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Anneka Jones and Reedus serve as executive producers.
