FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - An all-new episode of AMC's original scripted drama series "The Son" airs Saturday, June 3rd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on both AMC and SundanceTV. The series is based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel of the same name, and stars Pierce Brosnan. Consisting of ten one-hour episodes, "The Son" traces the transformation of Eli McCullough (Brosnan) from good-natured innocent to calculating killer. He loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. The series deftly explores how Eli's ruthlessness and quest for power triggers consequences that span generations, as the McCullough's rise to become one the most powerful family dynasties in Texas.
In the penultimate episode, "The Prophecy," Young Eli is forced to trust a strange ally to survive in 1849. In 1915, Eli's past guides him to a choice that puts him at odds with Phineas.
"The Son" is executive produced by showrunner Kevin Murphy ("Defiance"), co-creators Philipp Meyer, Brian McGreevy ("Hemlock Grove") and Lee Shipman ("Hemlock Grove"), director Tom Harper ("War & Peace," "Peaky Blinders") and Sonar Entertainment's Jenna Santoianni and Tom Lesinski. In addition to Brosnan, cast members include Jacob Lofland ("Justified," "Texas Rising," Maze Runner), Henry Garrett (Beauty and the Beast, "Poldark"), Paola Nunez ("Amor en Custodia"), Carlos Bardem (Assassin's Creed), Zahn McClarnon ("Fargo"), Jess Weixler ("The Good Wife"), David Wilson Barnes (Capote, The Bourne Legacy), Sydney Lucas (Fun Home), James Parks (The Hateful Eight, "Deadwood") and Elizabeth Frances ("Love"). The series has been renewed for a second season and will return to AMC in 2018 with 10 new episodes.
Season three of AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" returns with back-to-back episodes on Sunday, June 4th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the premiere episode, "Eye of the Beholder," the Clark family find themselves in a dire predicament. They must work together to discover a path to safety. On the second episode, "The New Frontier," following a harrowing journey, the Clark family arrive at their new home. Strand faces resistance as he attempts to hold power over his domain. A marathon of season two airs beginning Sunday, June 4th at 5:45 a.m. ET/PT leading into the season three premiere.
As "Fear the Walking Dead" returns for season three, our families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent region formerly known as the U.S.-Mexico border. International lines done away with following the world's end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but family as well. Madison has reconnected with Travis, her apocalyptic partner, but Alicia has been fractured by her murder of Andres. Madison's son is only a few miles from his mother, but Nick's first action as a leader saw him and Luciana ambushed by an American militia group - the couple escaped death, Luciana was shot, and Nick no longer feels immortal. Recovering both emotionally and physically, Strand has his sights set on harnessing the new world's currency, and Ofelia's captivity will test her ability to survive and see if she can muster the savagery of her father.
Heading into its third season, "Fear" has solidified itself as the #2 drama in ad-supported cable among adults 25-54. The series is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Colman Domingo as Strand and Danay Garcia as Luciana. Joining the cast as series regulars for season three are Dayton Callie ("Sons of Anarchy," "Deadwood"), Daniel Sharman ("The Originals," "Teen Wolf") and Sam Underwood ("The Following"), who will play the Otto family, founders of a survivalist organization who prepared for the fall of democracy, but didn't anticipate the rise of the dead, as well as Lisandra Tena ("Chicago P.D.") as Lola Guerrero.
Immediately following the second episode, series stars Cliff Curtis and Alycia Debnam-Carey and Executive Producer Dave Erickson sit down with Chris Hardwick on AMC's "Talking Fear" at 11:10 p.m. ET/PT
"Better Call Saul" season three continues with an all-new episode on Monday, June 5th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the new episode, "Slip," Jimmy is pushed to desperate measures. Nacho picks up a new skill, and Mike explores an alliance. Kim stands up to Hamlin.
A prequel to the award-winning series "Breaking Bad," the series follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother's shadow and make a name for himself. Saul's acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers: Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck (Michael McKean) staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy's confession to a felony. When Mike (Jonathan Banks) set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.
