FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - "The Name of the Rose," Sundance TV's limited series based on Umberto Eco's highly acclaimed novel continues with back-to-back all-new episodes on Thursday, June 6th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the fifth episode, both parties are finally present at the monastery and the long-awaited meeting is ready to commence. Meanwhile, William and Adso sneak into the library once again.
In the sixth episode, airing at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, the second session of the summit is about to begin when another corpse is found.
Set in Italy in 1327, the series follows the Franciscan monk William of Baskerville (John Turturro) and his novice Adso von Melk (Damian Hardung) as they arrive at a secluded monastery in the Alps. There they become witnesses to a series of mysterious murders. While Baskerville and Melk investigate and search for the killer, they are hunted themselves by the merciless inquisitor Bernard Gui (Rupert Everett), who prosecutes those who criticize the pope.
The final season of AMC's "The Son," continues on Saturday, June 8th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "Get a Shovel," the Comanches go to war in 1852, while in 1916, the McCulloughs' fight with Standard Oil reaches a breaking point. Eli takes a scalp.
Based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name, season two of The Son concludes the journey of the iconic "First Son of Texas." Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) will stop at nothing to secure his legacy against the backdrop of the nascent oil industry of 1917. His tools are deceit, fraud and murder -- weapons he wields with the effortless skill of the Comanche warrior he once was. But the biggest challenge he faces will be quelling a civil war under his own roof, triggered by his idealistic son Pete (Henry Garrett). Eli knows the ultimate prize of American dynasty is nearly in his grasp, and time is running out. Meanwhile, in 1851, young Eli (Jacob Lofland) is now married and a respected warrior among the Comanches, but tragedy forces him into a leadership position as the vast Comanche empire crumbles around him. Broadening the scope, a 1988 timeline is introduced, bringing the McCullough saga into the more immediate past. Here, at age 85, Eli's granddaughter Jeanne Anne McCullough (Lois Smith) is confronted with a long-buried family secret.
The long-awaited season five return of "Luther" continues on Sunday, June 9th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America. On the new episode, Luther must confront a demon from his past, as both the police and Cornelius converge on his home. With Halliday convinced that the body in the morgue isn't their killer, can Luther put his own troubles to one side and find the true murderer before he strikes again?
Season 5 of "Fear the Walking Dead" continues on Sunday, June 9th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this week's episode, "The Hurt That Will Happen," Morgan and Alicia meet a survivor and learn of a grave new walker threat. Meanwhile, the mission is put to the test when one of their own goes missing. Elsewhere, Strand makes contact.
In "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 5, the group's mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what's left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones (Lennie James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won't be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.
AMC's new supernatural horror series, "NOS4A2" continues on Sunday, June 9th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the second episode, "The Graveyard of What Might Be," Vic meets Maggie, a medium with more questions than answers, while Charlie Manx visits Haverhill to seek The Shorter Way and finds that Vic's school Janitor, Bing, is more than eager to help.
"NOS4A2" stars Emmy(R)-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto ("Star Trek," "American Horror Story") and rising star Ashleigh Cummings ("The Goldfinch"). Emmy(R)-nominated director Kari Skogland ("The Handmaid's Tale," "Sons of Liberty") directed the first two episodes of the series. The cast also includes Olafur Darri Olafsson ("Lady Dynamite"), Virginia Kull ("The Looming Tower"), Ebon Moss-Bachrach ("The Punisher") and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J). The series is executive produced by showrunner Jami O'Brien ("Fear the Walking Dead," "Hell on Wheels"), Lauren Corrao, co-president of Tornante Television, and Joe Hill. The series is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television.
Based on the 2013 novel by Joe Hill, "NOS4A2" introduces Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children and then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland - a twisted place of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims - without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
