FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 4 continues on Sunday, May 13th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "Laura," the arrival of a wounded visitor in John Dorie's life forces him to change his ways.

In its fourth season, "Fear the Walking Dead" viewers will see the world of Madison Clark and her family through new eyes - the eyes of Morgan Jones, who joined the story from the world of "The Walking Dead." The characters' immediate pasts mix with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes and threats. They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; and the heroic, mercenary and craven, all crashing together toward a new reality.

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 Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia, along with new series regulars Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Grace and Lennie James.

Season three of AMC's "Into the Badlands" continues on Sunday, May 13th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the fourth episode, "Blind Cannibal Assassins," Sunny and Bajie face off a deadly new foe with a dark connection to Sunny's past, while Chau enlists her brother in the fight against Pilgrim.

Season three of "Into the Badlands" finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil's death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie (Nick Frost) and journey back into the Badlands, where The Widow (Beecham) and Baron Chau (Matsuura) are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda (Ally Ioannides) or Waldo (Stephen Lang), The Widow must find new allies in Lydia (Orla Brady) and in Nathaniel Moon (Sherman Augustus) - the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season 2. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay) arrives in the Badlands on a mission to restore Azra and usher in a new era of "peace," old enemies must band together to defend the Badlands.

"Into the Badlands" was created by showrunners/executive producers/writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and executive produced by Oscar(R)-nominated producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg, director David Dobkin, fight director Stephen Fung and star Daniel Wu. The series stars Daniel Wu (Tomb Raider) as Sunny; Aramis Knight (Enders Game) as M.K.; Emily Beecham (Daphne) as The Widow; Orla Brady ("Fringe") as Lydia; Ally Ioannides ("Parenthood") as Tilda and Nick Frost as Bajie (Shaun of the Dead). This season, they will be joined by new series regulars Lorraine Toussaint ("Orange is the New Black"), Sherman Augustus ("Westworld"), Babou Ceesay ("Guerilla") and Ella-Rae Smith (Clique), as well as new recurring guest stars Dean-Charles Chapman ("Game of Thrones") and Lewis Tan ("Iron Fist").

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" star Jenna Elfman and actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

An all-new episode of "The Terror" airs Monday, May 14th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT titled "The C, The C, The Open C." Hope comes in strange forms, and the question of what the men are willing to do to survive begins to be settled in both noble and horrifying ways.

"The Terror" is a suspenseful thriller that follows a British Royal Naval expedition as they set sail in search of the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope, fear of the unknown and attacks by a mysterious predator, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. The series is speculative fiction based on the lost voyage where more than 120 crew members inexplicably disappeared. Their fate is one of the enduring mysteries of the age of exploration. This epic series features distinctive imagery and landscapes, with a visual quality that is emblematic in scale and scope of a Ridley Scott production.

The ten-episode series stars Jared Harris (The Crown, Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier, Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames, Ciar´┐Żn Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin, Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Harry Goodsir, Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey, Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence and Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky.

"The Terror" is executive produced by Ridley Scott, David Kajganich, Soo Hugh, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert and Guymon Casady and is produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios.

Also, on Monday, "AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction," continues with an all-new episode at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the new episode, "Monsters," James Cameron asks the question: what makes us afraid - and why do we like it so much? Science fiction monsters allow us to explore the dark parts of ourselves - parts that we may not want to admit even exist. This episode includes cinematic works such as Godzilla and Jurassic Park among others. Guests this week include: Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, Gareth Edwards, Roland Emmerich, Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, Paul W.S. Anderson, Dean Devlin, Caleb McLaughlin, Jeff Goldblum, Veronica Cartwright, Sigourney Weaver, Peter Capaldi, Keith David, Milla Jovovich, Nnedi Okorafor and Jack Horner.

AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction is a uniquely intimate, insiders' look at the origins of the genre that has become a cornerstone of popular culture. Throughout each episode of the six-part television series, Academy Award(R)-winning writer, director and producer James Cameron explores science fiction's roots, futuristic vision and our fascination with its ideas through interviews with A-list storytellers, stars and others whose careers have defined the field, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Will Smith and Sigourney Weaver, among some 100 other series' participants. Cameron takes us on a journey of discovery and exploration, helping us understand where science fiction's ideas came from - and where they're taking us
