SEASON TWO OF AMC'S CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED DRAMA, "HUMANS" CONTINUES WITH ALL NEW BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES MONDAY, MARCH 13TH AT 10:00PM ET/PT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - An all new episode of the #1 show in all of television among adults 18-49, AMC's "The Walking Dead," airs Sunday, March 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On "Bury Me Here," keeping with the routine supply drop-off, a group of Kingdommers delivers goods to The Saviors. Things don't go as planned.

In the second half of the season, Rick's group finds out yet again that the world isn't what they thought it was. It's much bigger than anything they've seen so far. While they have a singular purpose - to defeat Negan - it won't come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.

Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" reigns as television's most watched drama for Adults 18-49 for five consecutive years. "The Walking Dead" tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

Immediately following the new episode, viewers can catch the live after-show, "Talking Dead," featuring series stars Lennie James (live via Skype) and Michael Rooker, joined by executive producer Scott Gimple and a surprise cast member at 10:07 p.m. ET/PT.

An all new episode of "Comic Book Men" airs at 12:12 a.m. ET/PT. On "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Stash," Walt steps into the ring with a customer over an original Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots game. A rare piece of original Sal Buscema art comes in.

In its sixth season, AMC's popular unscripted series "Comic Book Men" takes another dive into world of geekdom by following the antics in and around master fanboy Kevin Smith's New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Leading the team behind the shop's counter are Walt, Bryan, Michael and Ming, who geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Special guests this season include Cassandra Peterson, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark; The Bionic Woman, Lindsay Wagner; and makeup artist extraordinaire Robert Kurtzman. Whether it's buying and selling memorabilia or embarking on wild adventures away from the store, The Stash cast shares all the juicy details with Kevin during their hilarious podcast, which is woven throughout the series.

Two all-new episodes of AMC's critically-acclaimed scripted drama, "Humans," air back to back on Monday, March 13th beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the fifth episode, written by Emily Ballou and directed by Francesca Gregorini, Mia risks falling into the wrong handswhile Odi struggles to find purpose in life. Hester and Leo stake out the Silo but with a fatal outcome. On the sixth episode, written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and directed by Francesca Gregorini, Athena discovers Milo's real plan. Mia's return has ramifications for the Hawkins and while Mattie reconnects with Leo, Max begins a new community of synths.

The second season picks up several months after the events of season one, with Niska (Emily Berrington) still at large and in possession of the consciousness code. Her synth family, Mia (Gemma Chan), Leo (Colin Morgan) and Max (Ivanno Jeremiah), unaware of her location, are each trying to find their place in the world while Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) and Laura (Katherine Parkinson) attempt to mend their marriage. As unconfirmed reports of synths behaving inexplicably surface, the ripple effect of one simple yet seismic decision sees the past return dramatically and surprisingly to the door of the Hawkins house. Joe, Laura and the entire family are faced with a difficult choice that will put the family under an intense spotlight. As an emerging form of intelligent life - the synths - and an established one - humanity - fight for their places in the world, a thrilling multi-stranded narrative evolves which continues to ask: who has the right to determine what it means to be alive?

Carrie-Anne Moss joins the cast as Dr. Athena Morrow, a pre-eminent Artificial Intelligence expert who is driven by her own motives to create a new kind of machine consciousness. Additional casting includes, Sam Palladio as Ed, a struggling café owner trying to breathe life into his family business; and Marshall Allman as Milo Khoury, a young Silicon Valley billionaire, founder and CEO of a leading technology company; intent on changing the world.
