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. "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, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

In its seventh season, AMC's popular unscripted series "Comic Book Men," takes another dive into the 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 "Luke Cage" star Mike Colter, Rosario Dawson, Burt Ward, Method Man, and Freddy Kruger himself, Robert Englund. 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.

The series premiere of "McMafia" airs Monday, February 26th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the premiere episode, after a tragic event, Russian exile Alex Godman (James Norton) is drawn into the murky world of global crime as he tries to protect his family from their dark past.

"McMafia" charts Alex Godman's (Norton) journey through a terrifying labyrinth of international criminals, money launderers, corrupt politicians and ruthless intelligence agencies. As the English-raised son of Russian exiles with a mafia history, Alex has spent his life trying to escape the shadow of his family's criminal past by building his own legitimate business and forging a life with his girlfriend. When his family's past murderously returns to threaten the life he has built, Alex is drawn into the criminal world and forced to confront his values to protect those he loves. What starts out as a story of survival and revenge becomes an epic tale of one man's struggle against the lures of corruption in the modern world and in himself.

The second half of "The Walking Dead" season nine finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group's rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it's unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.
