Wait, what? AMC has given ‘The Walking Dead’ star Norman Reedus his very own reality show… but what does it have to do with Daryl Dixon?
Sorry, The Walking Dead fans, but Ride With Norman Reedus is NOT going to be a spin-off featuring his lovable redneck character, Daryl Dixon. But yes the shows are still connected, because we’ll get to see Norman doing his favorite thing on both: riding motorcycles!
“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,” Norman said in a statement once the reality series was announced, reports E! Online. “I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows.”
Even though it’s not a spin-off featuring the trials and tribulations of life as Daryl Dixon, this is still very exciting. After all, it means we get to see more Norman on the network that made him a household name!
However, if you’re a Walking Dead fan, you probably can’t help but wonder if that means Daryl’s death is imminent in season six so Norman can focus on his new series. Although HollywoodLife.com can not confirm or deny any of these speculations, by the looks of Norman’s statement he’s already filmed his first season of the reality series… which means he can totally balance both shows, and likely plans to do just that!
