We can all sigh with relief as AMC has officially announced the premiere dates for “Mad Men” and “Better Call Saul.” Unfortunately, “Mad Men” is heading into its final season but at least we have the series premiere of the “Breaking Bad” spinoff to keep us whole.
“Mad Men” will premiere the first half of their final season on Sunday, April 13. “Better Call Saul” focuses on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he became Walter White’s lawyer. Unfortunately the official date for the series has not been confirmed.
The upcoming spy thriller, “Turn” will premiere on Sunday 6. It follows the untold story of America’s first spy ring during the Revolutionary War
In June, AMC will premiere of “Halt and Catch Fire,” which captures the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s, during which an unlikely trio – a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy – take staggering personal and professional risks in the race to build a computer that will change the world. Later in the summer will bring the season four roll-out of the AMC western “Hell on Wheels,” which grew to an average audience of 3.3 million viewers in its move to Saturday nights in 2013.
On the unscripted side, “Game of Arms,” will premiere on Tuesday, February 25 at 10PM, followed by May launches of the third season of “Small Town Security” and second season of “Freakshow.” The network also announced the season five pick-up of “The Talking Dead.”
“We are extremely excited about the 2014 line-up,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s President and General Manager. “Both the returning and new series reflect our commitment to serving passionate audiences with compelling, character-driven story-telling.”
“The Walking Dead” will return for season 5 in October. The second half of season four of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday, February 9 at 9PM.
Premiere dates for “Halt and Catch Fire,” season four of “Hell on Wheels,” season five of “The Walking Dead,” and “Better Call Saul” will be announced at a later date.
