Sep 23, 2016  •  Post A Comment

AMC has ordered a second season of a show featuring one of the stars of “The Walking Dead.” Deadline.com reports that the cable channel picked up “Ride with Norman Reedus.”

The travel series tracks Reedus — “Walking Dead’s” Daryl Dixon — as he hits the road on his motorcycle and samples various cultures.

Said Reedus: “The reaction to ‘Ride’ has been incredibly positive. 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.”

Deadline notes that the show’s six-episode first season averaged 800,000 in Nielsen Live+7 figures.
