For the first time ever, AMC will launch a fourth night of original programming on Tuesdays beginning this April with the debut of the highly-anticipated miniseries event The Night Manager, which is described as a contemporary interpretation of John la Carre’s espionage drama.

The second half of the current season of The Walking Dead debuts on Sunday, February 14 at 9PM and the second season of Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul begins on Monday, February 15 at 10PM.

Fear the Walking Dead will air its second season of 15 episodes in two parts, beginning with the first of seven episodes on Sunday, April 10th at 9:00PM ET/PT. The remaining eight episodes will air later in 2016. The series delivered the highest-rated first season of any series in cable history.

Fear the Walking Dead began production on season two last month in the Baja peninsula in Mexico at Baja Studios. Season one left off with Madison, Travis and their extended family taking temporary shelter in Strand’s gated estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Beginning Tuesday, January 26th, the complete first season of Fear the Walking Dead will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu.

Immediately following Fear the Walking Dead on Sundays at 10:00PM ET/PT will be Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick, which will continue its tradition of welcoming cast, producers and celebrity guests to the couch to talk about the newest episode of Fear the Walking Dead.
