AMC premieres the new Walking Dead spinoff show Fear the Walking Dead this weekend. Set at the beginning of the zombie outbreak in Los Angeles, Fear centers on two families, the Clarks and the Manawas. Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) has moved in with Madison Clark (Kim Dickens), and their respective kids don’t get along, so the zombies are seemingly the least of their problems.
The cast and producers of Fear the Walking Dead gave a panel for the Television Critics Association last month. During the panel, show runner Dave Erickson answered common questions about the series. Fear won’t catch up to Rick waking up from his coma for at least two seasons, for example. And no, cast members from the Georgia-set Walking Dead won’t show up in Fear.
After the panel, I got some one on one time with Erickson to find out some of what we will see on Fear the Walking Dead. Read More »

We’re still a few weeks away from the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, the companion series to AMC’s hit horror drama The Walking Dead. but the spin-off series was recently given a 15-episode order for a second season, as recounted in our TCA coverage.
And along with news of that second season order, a new teaser promo for the series premiere has arrived. There’s no footage from the actual show used, but it’s a pretty cool teaser showing a time lapse of the zombie outbreak from a distance as it wreaks havoc on Los Angeles. Parts of the city begin losing power and going up in flames. The City of Angels clearly isn’t safe anymore.

Better Call Saul surprised a lot of people in 2014. How could a spin-off prequel show featuring a side character from a TV show, even one as excellent as Breaking Bad, tell a viable story? Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, with Bob Odenkirk to play Jimmy McGill, showed everyone how to do it, and Better Call Saul became a hit with audiences and critics alike, scoring seven Primetime Emmy Awards nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.
The producers are bringing the show to AMC’s panels at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, and we’ll likely have more news from that later today. For now we’ve got two Better Call Saul S2 first-look photos (one featuring creators Gilligan and Gould) taken from the set of the show as it films in Albuquerque, NM. Read More »

Back in March, we got our first look at AMC’s forthcoming sci-fi drama series Humans. The new series is based on the Swedish show Äkta människor, or Real Humans, and takes place in a world where humanoid robot servants are helping people in their everyday life. But as we’ve seen many times before, these creations won’t stay our servants for long.
Now a better look at the forthcoming series has arrived with a little bit of footage from the show that hits AMC in June. It’s nothing we haven’t seen from similar stories before, but with a cast that includes William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Gemma Chan and more, hopefully AMC has another hit show on their hands.
