This is a big night for Norman Reedus. First, Daryl Dixon will "meet his match" -- or so says AMC -- in his big fight with Beta in The Walking Dead Season 9 episode "Chokepoint." That will be followed by Talking Dead, but that will be followed by Reedus' reunion with The Boondock Saints co-star Sean Patrick Flanery on Ride With Norman Reedus. Fans are pumped for Flandus to ride again. Check out the teaser for the March 10 episode:
Yes! If you can believe it, it has been 20 years since The Boondock Saints was released in 1999, introducing MacManus brothers Connor (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus). The sequel The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was released in 2009. It seems like we should get a sequel every 10 years, so now that it's 2019 maybe Flandus can update fans with news on the long-awaited third movie? There was also talk about a prequel TV series. We're due for some Boondock updates is the point.
The Ride With Norman Reedus episode is called "Lone Star State with Sean Patrick Flanery," as the two ride through the heart of Texas to hang out with influential tattoo artist Oliver Peck in Dallas.
Ride With Norman Reedus Season 3 has been packed with reunions. The season started in February 2019 by reuniting Reedus with Andrew Lincoln, who left The Walking Dead earlier in Season 9 (but will continue in his own Rick Grimes movies). Ride continued with Steven Yeun, whose Glenn Rhee is missed every week. TWD's ratings took a massive dive after Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) killed Glenn, which was just following Robert Kirkman's comic book story. But still.
The third episode of Ride was a Caryl fest bringing The Walking Dead's Carol queen Melissa McBride out on the road to delve into her Scottish ancestry. Last week saw a Daryl and Dwight reunion, with Norman Reedus hanging with his former on-screen enemy Austin Amelio, who is now playing Dwight over on Fear the Walking Dead.
It's exciting to think of what could happen from here. Maybe Diane Kruger will join her real-life love on the road? You know Bethyl fans would love to see The Walking Dead alum Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) reunite with Norman Reedus. And maybe Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene Rhee) could find some time between taping episodes of Whiskey Cavalier.
Since Ride With Norman Reedus doesn't start airing until midnight, technically it airs Monday morning, not Sunday night. But whatever. Either way, watch Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery Sunday, March 10/Monday, March 11 on AMC. Keep up with everything that's airing in midseason 2019 with our handy premiere date schedule. And get yourself up-to-date on The Walking Dead's big fair to understand why they keep mentioning it and what it could mean going forward.
