AMC announced today from the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour the network’s 2016 spring premiere dates for new and returning original series.
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.
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 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The remaining eight episodes will air later in 2016.
The series began production on season two last month in the Baja peninsula in Mexico at Baja Studios.
Launching a new night for AMC originals is the six-part miniseries event The Night Manager, premiering on Tuesday, April 19th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
A contemporary interpretation of John le Carré’s espionage drama, the series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), who is recruited by intelligence operative Angela Burr (Olivia Colman) to infiltrate the inner circle of international businessman Richard Onslow Roper (Hugh Laurie) and detonate the unholy alliance he has ministered between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade.
TURN: Washington’s Spies premieres its third season on Monday, April 25th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
The Revolutionary War spy thriller, starring Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull and executive produced by Craig Silverstein and Barry Josephson, returns with an epic 10-episode season that builds towards one of the most notorious moments in American history – the treasonous defection of Benedict Arnold (Owain Yeoman).
TURN: Washington’s Spies is based on the book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose.
