This week on AMC Networks, all-new episodes of "Riviera," "Top Gear," "NOS4A2" and "Fear the Walking Dead."

Season two of Sundance Now's "Riviera," continues on Thursday, July 11th. On this week's episode, Georgina prepares to launch her exhibition with Jeff (Will Arnett) and Noah (Grégory Fitoussi) at her side, while Irina (Lena Olin) draws closer to the truth about Adam (Iwan Rheon). Irina and Georgina have a heated conversation that has the potential to change the future of the Clios family.

"Riviera's" highly anticipated return picks up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive first series finale, where the Clios family is faced with the tragic death of one of their own. Only this time, the blood is on the hands of our female protagonist, Georgina (Juila Stiles).

As Georgina tries to find a way to live with her crime, secrets from her past wash up on the sandy shores of the Cote d'Azur that force her to explore her turbulent childhood against her will. Following an unprecedented and unavoidable visit to her childhood home, Georgina returns with a refreshed sense of self to re-establish her power and position in the family alongside her charismatic confidant, uncle Jeff (Arnett).

Georgina very quickly becomes acquainted with the Eltham family, an English dynasty that sail in to the Cote d'Azur providing its shores with a dose of new money and glamour. She goes on to form relationships with the whole family, some that appear genuine from the outset and others that unravel around her as secrets, old and new, become exposed. Juliet Stevenson takes on the role of Lady Cassandra Eltham and is joined on the Riviera by her children, the impossibly stylish Daphne (Poppy Delevingne) and the brooding Nico (Jack Fox) and Daphne's husband Raafi (Alex Lanipekun).

Elsewhere in the Riviera, the rest of the Clios family is still reeling from Constantine's death. Christos (Dimitri Leonidas) is on the brink of losing everything, Adriana (Roxanne Duran) loses herself in a dangerous affair and Irina struggles to find her lost son, Adam.

The Riviera has never been so tempestuous. Torn between her past and her present, can Georgina navigate her way to safer waters or will she lose her place in a world that she has grown to control?

Season 27 of "Top Gear" premieres on Sunday, July 14th. Featuring new hosts Freddie Flintoff, Paddy McGuinness and returning host Chris Harris, the premiere episode sees the trio reliving their first car experiences in Ethiopia. Freddie, Paddy and Chris are tasked with buying a fine example of their own first car, and drive their purchases to the Danakil Depression - the hottest year-round place on Earth. Moreover, Chris takes to the track in the McLaren 600LT and Ferrari 488 Pista in order to determine which track-day supercar is the best. Suffice to say, Europe's tire manufacturers were kept in business for another few years.

The new season sees Paddy, Freddie and Chris tackling the fastest, hottest, toughest Top Gear challenges to date: pushing their cars, and themselves, to the very limits of endurance. From the brutal heat of the Ethiopian desert to the pedestrianized shopping district of downtown Mansfield in England, Top Gear is going bigger than ever before - all brought from the world-famous Top Gear test track, where a fresh batch of celebrities will demonstrate their driving prowess, or lack thereof, in the Reasonably Fast Car as well as being put through a new challenge which will be set by the presenters each week.

Season five of "Fear the Walking Dead" continues on Sunday, July 14th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this week's episode, "Still Standing," Strand and Charlie seek safety as Dorie helps Dwight on his quest. Morgan stays focused on the greater mission while elsewhere, Alicia refuses to give up.

In "Fear the Walking Dead" Season five, 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, July 14th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this week's episode, "Scissors for the Drifter," Vic finds herself stuck in the real world. When Manx runs into trouble, he calls Bing for 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.
