Don’t own a motorcycle? Completely clueless about engines? Don’t worry, you can still tune into “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus’ new AMC series.
Fans know Norman Reedus as crossbow-wielding, motorcycle-riding survivor Daryl Dixon on “The Walking Dead.” But while the hit zombie series is on hiatus, viewers will get to stay in the loop with the actor as he hosts the new nonfiction show “Ride With Norman Reedus.” Six one-hour episodes will air this summer, exploring “local motorcycle culture and history.” But according to Reedus, you don’t have to be already part of the motorcycle world to appreciate the show.
“It’s not a gearhead show where we’re talking about this and that,” the 47-year-old actor told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s a little bit of that, but it’s more of a journey. I take a person and we go on a journey, and we experience things together. They show me their town on motorcycles, and we explore new towns on motorcycles. It’s been a real gypsy-esque adventure that’s just a ton of fun.”
The series will also introduce other famous faces as a way to attract viewers. Reedus teased to the outlet in January that his first guest is a “surprise” and a “big one.” According to the Hollywood Reporter, some of his big-name guests will include “Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” actor Peter Fonda, as well as “Pee-Wee Herman” star Paul Reubens. “Born to Die” singer Lana Del Rey was photographed filming with Reedus in February.
Mastodon member Brent Hinds also shared a photo from the set a few days ago, revealing that he’ll be featured in the season 1 finale of the show.
“Ride With Norman Reedus” premieres on AMC this June.
