NEW YORK, NY – December 9, 2019 – AMC is revving up for a fifth season of the popular motorcycle travelogue Ride with Norman Reedus, featuring The Walking Dead star and motorcycle enthusiast Norman Reedus as he hits the open road with a riding companion to explore different cultures and experience the best scenery, food, nature and local activities in the US and around the world. The renewal for season five, which begins production on six episodes in early 2020, comes ahead of the show’s season four debut on Sunday, March 8 at midnight ET/11c.
To thank fans for their strong support of the series, the network is giving them a chance to weigh in and select one of Reedus’ riding locations for season five with a special online poll. Fans can enter their votes on Ride’s official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for one of the following cities: Jackson, Mississippi, San Diego, California, Salt Lake City Utah, Seattle, Washington or Portland, Oregon.
“Ride not only gives me the chance to share my passion for motorcycle culture, but also the opportunity to explore new places around the world and meet some incredible people on the journey,” said star and executive producer, Reedus. “I’m so excited for fans to see this upcoming season and to get on the road for season five! And I can’t wait to see which location fans chose for me to visit next year.”
Ride season four, which consists of six episodes, features a The Walking Dead Dixon Brothers reunion with Reedus journeying through Alabama and Georgia with his former co-star, Michael Rooker.
