Life for Norman Reedus is pretty sweet. Not only does he get to play Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, a character designed just for him, he gets to ride his motorcycle around the country and film that for his other AMC series, Ride with Norman Reedus.
The rest of his life is really awesome too, but we have to say that we’re incredibly excited for what’s on the horizon right now as far as his career goes. If we had to guess, we’d say he’s extremely excited too; especially after news that broke earlier today.
We’ll see Norman riding back onto our television screens on November 5th at 11 pm – on AMC – and the first guest we’ll see him with? Jeffrey Dean Morgan himself. News broke earlier this year that the pair had filmed an episode together and it was confirmed just weeks ago. Fans wondered how long they’d have to wait to see the pair take on the open road together and we’re thrilled that Norman decided to kick off the season with it.
Even though their characters are enemies on The Walking Dead, the two have become fast friends. In fact, they’re more like family now. Their dynamic together is awesome and fan stories from those lucky enough to have met the two while they’re out together are always great.
The two will be biking through Spain to meet thousands of Walking Dead fans during their episode and Norman revealed earlier today that he was ‘super stoked’ about the upcoming season and that he couldn’t wait to get started on season 3.
‘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.’
Towards the end of 2016, Jeffrey spoke about the shared love of motorcycles between himself and Norman, and it’s also been documented on social media. Which we totally appreciate.
‘Norman and I go for long motorcycle rides. This year, we drove to Nashville and took all these mountain roads. We just take off and go for these beautiful rides. That’s how we both unwind. Now, I’ve found a guy that does exactly the same thing I do and loves all the same things I love.’
We can’t wait to see Norman and Jeffrey kick off the second season soon!
