The #2 drama on cable, and #4 cable series overall, “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero, and produced by AMC Studios.

In season four of “Fear the Walking Dead,” we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), joining the story from the world of “The Walking Dead.” The characters’ immediate past mixes with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes and threats. They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; the heroic, mercenary, and craven, all crashing together towards a new reality for “Fear the Walking Dead.”

About “Into the Badlands”
Season 3 Premieres Sunday, April 22 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
“Into the Badlands,” AMC’s post-apocalyptic, visually stunning drama series, is a story of survival and dominance set in a future feudal society. Within the territory known as the Badlands, a variety of clans struggle for supremacy over one another; these clans have been formed by the destruction of familial bonds and skirmishes over power. The show’s interwoven themes of martial arts, love and redemption are highlighted by what the show is best known for: its stunning cinematography, and striking fight sequences.

Season three of “Into the Badlands” finds Sunny (Daniel Wu of Tomb Raider) living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil’s death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie (Nick Frost of Shaun of the Dead) and journey back into the Badlands, where The Widow (Emily Beecham of Daphne) and Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura of Wonder Woman) are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda (Ally Ioannides of “Parenthood”) or Waldo (Stephen Lang of Avatar), The Widow must find new allies in Lydia (Orla Brady of “Fringe”) and in Nathaniel Moon (Sherman Augustus of “Westworld”) — the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season two. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay of “Guerilla”) arrives in the Badlands on a mission to restore Azra and usher in a new era of “peace,” old enemies must band together to defend the Badlands.

The series also stars Aramis Knight (Enders Game) as M.K., Lorraine Toussaint (“Orange is the New Black”) as Cressida, Ella-Rae Smith (The Commuter) as Nix, Lewis Tan (“Iron Fist”) as Gaius and Dean-Charles Chapman (“Game of Thrones”) as Castor.

From AMC Studios, “Into the Badlands” was created by executive producers, showrunners and writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (“Smallville”) and is executive produced by Oscar®-nominated producers Stacey Sher (Django Unchained) and Michael Shamberg (Contagion), along with David Dobkin (The Judge), Stephen Fung (Tai Chi Zero), Michael Taylor (“TURN: Washington’s Spies”) and Wu. “Into the Badlands” closed its second season as a top-ten scripted series on ad-supported cable, averaging 3 million viewers per episode.
