A Ride with Norman Reedus season 3 renewal is coming, and perhaps most impressive, it’s coming before the second season of the show even premieres later this fall.
This week, AMC officially greenlit a third batch of episodes featuring the Walking Dead star as he travels around to various locales via motorcycle, learning about bike culture and also seeing more of what the world has to offer in the process. CarterMatt has learned that season 2 will begin “in Spain alongside The Walking Dead castmate Jeffrey Dean Morgan and a few hundred thousand fans. Additional episodes this season follow Norman hitting the Low Country of Savannah, Georgia with comedian Dave Chappelle, taking on his home turf of New York City with famed chef Mario Batali, and much more.” The show has a vibe that is reasonably similar to Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, where you get to see a lot of travel through the lens of a very specific pastime. With that show, it’s food; here, it’s biking.
In a statement confirming the news about the third season, Reedus had the following to say:
“There’s not much I love more than riding my bike on an open road with good friends … The fact that I get to do that as my job is a dream come true. I’m super stoked for people to watch the upcoming season and can’t wait to start shooting three soon.”
The first season of Ride with Norman Reedus was a favorite at CarterMatt for its presentation of different walks of life, and it was also interesting if you were a fan of The Walking Dead for seeing how so many people reacted to seeing Norman rolling into town. The fact of the matter is that he’s a star on one of the most popular cable series ever, and we like that the show doesn’t steer clear of that. It feels more authentic that they present him as he is, both interacting with fans and also still getting some intimate experiences. We also like that he will spend some time in New York City, given that it has an underground bike culture of its own.
Also, Dave Chappelle! Who doesn’t love the fact that Chappelle now has an Emmy win thanks to his gig hosting Saturday Night Live? The more that they pair Reedus with interesting people who share an enthusiasm for some of what he likes, the more likely that it will in turn that they create interesting moments that viewers want to go back and watch again. This show’s about culture, but it’s also about creating a memorable experience. This is why shows like Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee have such tremendous value in re-watching.
