Norman Reedus is a busy man these days. Filming of The Walking Dead has already started, and though producers may not have wanted the public to know yet, the story broke last week. The cast is already in Georgia, which is where the show is filmed. In addition to his regular duties as Daryl, Reedus is starring in a new reality show airing this summer.
Ride with Norman Reedus will premiere on June 12. Robert Kirkman is working on a six-part documentary called Heroes and Villains: The History of Comic Books that will air in 2017.
The Walking Dead Season 6 ended in a cliffhanger, but a new clue may have surfaced inadvertently last week. It seems Steven Yeun was riding motorcycles last Thursday with Norman Reedus in Peachtree City, Georgia, when they happened upon a car crash. The two quickly proved they could be heroes in real life too, as they assisted the crash victims in getting out of their crumpled cars. KTLA 5 News reported no one was injured in the accident.
The Walking Dead stars waited for police and paramedics before taking off. Mikail Turan, a witness at the scene, took photos. Law enforcement officers confirmed that Reedus and Yeun were indeed present at the scene of the accident.
Warning: There are spoilers ahead!
Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun being spotted in Georgia may be a very good sign. Vine Report seems certain Reedus and Yeun (aka Daryl and Glenn) were on their way to the Walking Dead Season 7 set when they came up on the car accident. Of course, this is no guarantee that both of them survived the Season 6 finale, but it does give fans more hope.
The Walking Dead final scene of Season 6 has not been filmed yet. It was only audio in last season’s finale. None of the actors were present for the sound effects, and so even the actors did not know which one of them died. That scene will be re-enacted in full detail in Episode 1 of Season 7.
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman released yet another letter of explanation for his cruel cliffhanger that has angered a lot of fans and has buffs losing sleep trying to figure out who died in the final episode. Comic Book has the quote.
“We expected a big reaction. I will admit it’s possible this exceeded our expectations. I think you’re mistaking an explanation for an excuse or a justification. I personally liked it. Scott Gimple and I spent many months going over exactly how to stage it and how to adapt that scene. Many options were discussed. I do strongly believe that when you watch the season 7 premiere (if you do) you will see the two halves of the story and it will all make sense why we did what we did. But a whole heck of a lot of you folks are unhappy. I’m not kidding myself about that. Season 7 is very strong, we know what’s coming. If you stick around… you’ll like where we’re taking things.”
If fans will like it, then Daryl and Glenn must be safe. Otherwise, no amount of twisted logic could possibly make an outcome that would please fans.
AMC has many new shows coming out, and one features Norman Reedus. Another will be co-produced by Robert Kirkman.
Ride with Norman Reedus is an AMC original series focused on Norman Reedus as he rides across the United States with various guest stars, including Peter Fonda, Robert Rodriguez, and Balthazar Getty. The show’s bikers will explore custom bike shops, meet local bikers from different locations, and even visit tattoo parlors. Overall, it will be an exploration of all aspects of biker culture.
Norman Reedus isn’t the only one working overtime on a reality spin-off. AMC is already planning a new documentary series titled Heroes and Villains: The History of Comic Books.
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is the executive producer of Heroes and Villains. The show will air in 2017. Six one-hour episodes are being planned.
