PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead is to premiere April 10 and will be followed each week by the analysis program Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick, AMC announced.
Fear is a Los Angeles-set spinoff of the Virginia-located, zombie-apocalypse drama The Walking Dead. It stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Ruben Blades, Mercedes Mason, Lorenzo James Henrie and Colman Domingo.
The cable-television network also said The Night Manager, its eight-part espionage drama starring Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander, Elizabeth Debicki and Tom Hiddleston, is to debut Feb. 22.
"A contemporary interpretation of John le Carré's espionage novel, The Night Manager follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine, who is recruited by intelligence operative Angela Burr to infiltrate the inner circle of international businessman Richard Onslow Roper and detonate the unholy alliance he has ministered between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade," a news release said. "To reach the heart of Roper's vast empire, Pine must withstand the suspicious interrogations of his venal chief of staff, Major Corkoran and the allure of his beautiful girlfriend Jed. In his quest to do the right thing, Pine must first become a criminal himself."
