FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - "Fear the Walking Dead's" Season four mid-season premiere airs on Sunday, August 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "People Like Us," Morgan tries to help Alicia and the fractured group of survivors as a storm brews. The episode is written by Anna Fishko and directed by Magnus Martens.

The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be...together. In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now - as individuals and as part of the greater group - and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries - human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope. The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero, and produced by AMC Studios. The series stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman.

Produced by AMC Studios, "Fear the Walking Dead" is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero. This season stars Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia, along with new series regulars Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Grace and Lennie James.

"Preacher" season three continues Sunday, August 12th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the eighth episode, "The Tom/Brady," Annville, Angelville and The Grail team up to steal souls in New Orleans and Osaka in a last-ditch effort to satisfy Gran'ma and save the world. The episode is written by Mary Laws and Kevin Rose and directed by Wayne Yip.

In Season three, Jesse Custer's quest for God takes him back to the place he's been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends -- and a few enemies -- Jesse will need to escape his past... because the future of the world depends on it.

"Preacher" stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, Malcolm Barrett and new series regulars Betty Buckley ("Supergirl," "Split") and Colin Cunningham ("Blood Drive," "Falling Skies"). Jeremy Childs ("The Last Castle," "Nashville"), Liz McGeever ("Star, Nashville"), Jonny Coyne ("Turn," "Alcatraz"), Adam Croasdell ("Reign") and Prema Cruz ("Mozart in the Jungle") are recurring guest stars.

The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by executive producer and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad") and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("Sausage Party," "This is the End," "Superbad"). The series is also executive produced by James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Michael Slovis, Mark McNair, Garth Ennis, Ken F. Levin and Sara Goodman.

Following the episode, viewers can catch an all-new episode of "Talking Dead" hosted by Chris Hardwick at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, featuring "Fear the Walking Dead" stars Danay Garcia, Maggie Grace and actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

Season four of "Better Call Saul" continues on Monday, August 13th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the second episode, "Breathe," Jimmy seeks new employment, while Gus navigates the fallout from Hector's collapse and Kim endeavors to support Jimmy in the wake of Chuck's death. This episode is written by Thomas Schnauz and directed by Michelle MacLaren.

In "Better Call Saul's" fourth season, Chuck's death catalyzes Jimmy McGill's (Bob Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer - and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) - in jeopardy. Chuck's (Michael McKean) death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.

Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive's newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It's a volatile time to be in Gus Fring's employ, as Hector's collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos - tearing apart both Gus and Nacho's well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.

The critically acclaimed drama is executive produced by Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison. The series recently garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over three seasons, has earned 23 Emmy(R) Award nominations, three Golden Globe(R) Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics' Choice Awards, a Television Critics Association Award and two AFI Awards for "TV Programs of the Year," among many other Guild nominations. Created by Gilligan and Gould, the series stars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando and Giancarlo Esposito.

AMC's new original series "Lodge 49" continues Monday, August 13th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the second episode, "Moments of Truth in Service," Dud becomes acquainted with the Lodge while Ernie battles with his fellow Lynx regarding Larry's declining health. The episode is written by Jim Gavin and directed by Randall Einhorn.

"Lodge 49" is a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell), who's drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud serendipitously finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge, where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and "Luminous Knight" of the order, Ernie (Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may - or may not - put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he's lost. Jim Gavin (Author, Middle Men) serves as creator, writer, and executive-producer alongside showrunner Peter Ocko (Pushing Daisies, The Office). Additional executive producers include Paul Giamatti ("Billions," Sideways, Outsiders, Hoke), Dan Carey (Outsiders, Hoke, John Dies at the End, All Is Bright) and Jeff Freilich ("Halt and Catch Fire," "Grace and Frankie").
