SEASON TWO OF AMC'S CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED DRAMA, "HUMANS" CONTINUES MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH 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, February 19th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On "New Best Friends," on the search for a missing Alexandrian, Rick and his group encounter a mysterious collective, its inhabitants unlike any they have come across. Critics raved about the mid-season premiere, including Noel Murray of Rolling Stone, who said, "A return to action - including an ingenious way of killing walkers by the dozens - highlights a surprisingly strong start into Season 7's back half."

The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.

Rick's group will find 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.

We'll meet new survivors in incredible places. We'll see Rick and the group tested in ways we've never seen before. We'll see treachery from people we trust. 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. "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.

Following the mid-season premiere episode, viewers can catch an all new episode of the live after-show, "Talking Dead," featuring series star, Seth Gilliam, comedian, Chris D'Elia and a surprise cast member at 10:06 p.m. ET/PT.

An all new episode of "Comic Book Men" airs at 12:10 a.m. ET/PT. On "Bats Ahoy!" the Batboat docks in Red Bank, and the boys prepare for an adventure at sea. Batman's first appearance lands on the counter of the Secret Stash.

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.

An all new episode of AMC's critically-acclaimed scripted drama, "Humans," airs Monday, February 20th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the second episode, written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and directed by Lewis Arnold, Laura decides whether to help Niska. Karen and Pete learn about a synth sold on the black market. Leo faces a new mission. Mia takes a risk for Ed. Critics are already raving about the series, including Jen Chaney of Vulture, who said, "'Humans' is the best robot show on TV."

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.

Additional returning cast includes: Lucy Carless as Mattie Hawkins, Theo Stevenson as Toby Hawkins, Pixie Davies as Sophie Hawkins, Neil Maskell as D.S. Peter Drummond and Ruth Bradley as D.I. Karen Voss.

HUMANS is written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks: The Greater Good) with Joe Barton, Charlie Covell and Iain Weatherby. The series is produced by Kudos in association with Matador Films. Executive producers are Derek Wax (The Hour, Capital) and Chris Fry (The Smoke, Spooks) for Kudos; Vincent and Brackley; and Henrik Widman and Lars Lundstr�m for Matador Films. The series is produced by Paul Gilbert and directed by Lewis Arnold (Broadchurch), Carl Tibbetts (Black Mirror: White Bear), Francesca Gregorini (The Truth About Emanuel) and Mark Brozel (Dickensian).
