This week on AMC Networks, season two premiere of "This Close," plus all-new episodes of "Fear the Walking Dead," "Lodge 49," "The Terror: Infamy," and "Preacher."
"Fear the Walking Dead" season five continues on Sunday, September 8th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this week's episode, "Leave What You Don't," Logan's motives are revealed. Sarah, Dwight and Luciana negotiate for the sake of the mission. Meanwhile, Strand and Alicia race to the aid of a new survivor in a familiar place, and a dangerous threat emerges.
In the second half of season five, after successfully proving their way can work, our heroes gain momentum, rescuing survivors, and spreading the message of hope along the way -- until foes both familiar and unexpected arise, forcing the group to question whether their brand of altruism can really make a difference in a world filled with death and decay.
"Preacher" season four continues on Sunday, September 8th at 10:05 p.m. ET/PT. On the seventh episode, "Messiahs," Tulip and Cassidy tear across the world, hell-bent on making God pay for the latest bloody twist in His plan. Elsewhere, an old friend presents Jesse with a unique opportunity that could change everything.
"Preacher" stars Dominic Cooper, Academy Award(R) nominee Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun, along with series regulars Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, Noah Taylor, Mark Harelik and Tyson Ritter. As the series inches closer to the finale, God's endgame for the universe begins to click into place. Trapped between heavenly prophecies, hellish prisons, and all-out nuclear war, Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy make their bloody way to the Most High. Whether they can reach God in time - or whether all this carnage is part of His divine plan - will soon be revealed as "Preacher" barrels towards the end of the world.
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by executive producer and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad") and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("Sausage Party," "This is the End," "Superbad"). The series is also executive produced by James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Michael Slovis, Mark McNair, Garth Ennis, Ken F. Levin and Sara Goodman.
"The Terror: Infamy" continues on Monday, September 10th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT with an episode titled "Shatter Like a Pearl." The Japanese Americans are forced to undertake a humiliating exercise that divides the community. Chester comes face to face with a man who forces Chester to question his very nature. Luz, stricken by grief after tragedy, is forced to make an important choice.
"The Terror: Infamy" centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese American community, and a young man's journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible. In addition, the series is one of the first depicting the internment of Japanese Americans on such a massive scale - complete with authentically recreated camps in scope and scale as post-WWII.
The series stars Derek Mio, Kiki Sukezane (Lost in Space), Cristina Rodlo (Miss Bala), Shingo Usami (Unbroken), Naoko Mori (Everest), Miki Ishikawa (9-1-1) and renowned actor, producer, author and activist George Takei (Star Trek), who also serves as a consultant.

Season two of this modern fable set in Long Beach, CA centers on likable "Squire" and ex-surfer Sean "Dud" Dudley (Wyatt Russell), whose beloved fraternal order -- the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx -- is suffering under new rule by an ill-suited leader. Despite his "Knight" and mentor Ernie's (Brent Jennings) lost faith, and his twin sister Liz's (Sonya Cassidy) struggle with their past, Dud believes he is the key to restoring the Lodge to its former grandeur and putting the rightful king on the throne. In addition to Russell, Jennings and Cassidy, this season's cast includes Linda Emond (Connie), Eric Allan Kramer (Scott) and David Pasquesi (Blaise).
