AMC has announced a return date for the largely revamped Fear the Walking Dead.
The prequel series will kick off Season 4 (under new showrunners) on Sunday, April 15 at a special time, 10/9c. The following week it moves back to 9 pm, where it will lead into the Season 3 premiere of Into the Badlands.
As previously reported, The Walking Dead‘s Lennie James will be crossing over to Fear TWD as a series regular and leaving the parent series behind. As such, the story of Madison Clark and her family will now be told from the perspective of Morgan Jones. The official logline reads as follows:
In season four of Fear the Walking Dead, we will see the world of Madison Clark and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones, 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.
AMC has also announced that McMafia, its new international thriller based on Misha Glenny’s best-selling book of the same name, will arrive on Monday, Feb. 26 at 10/9c. The hour-long drama, co-produced by the BBC, tells the story of Alex Godman (Happy Valley‘s James Norton), the English-raised son of Russian exiles who finds himself thrust into the world of organized crime. All eight episodes will be available immediately to AMC Premiere subscribers following its linear debut.
Last but not least is the six-part docuseries AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, premiering Monday, April 30 at 10/9c.
