This week on AMC Networks, all-new episodes of "The Walking Dead" and "Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America."

"The Walking Dead" continues on Sunday, November 3rd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the new episode, "What Always Is", valuable supplies go missing from Hilltop and Ezekiel holds a secret. Meanwhile, Negan is idolized by an Alexandrian.

"The Walking Dead" is a story that started 10 years ago with one man trying to find his family. That family grew and gradually communities took shape. They fought and survived, thrived and gave birth to a new generation. It is a tale of humankind and there are more stories to tell. It is now Spring, a few months after the end of Season Nine, when our group of survivors dared to cross into Whisperer territory during the harsh winter. The collected communities are still dealing with the after-effects of Alpha's horrific display of power, reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them, all while organizing themselves into a militia-style fighting force, preparing for a battle that may be unavoidable. But the Whisperers are a threat unlike any they have ever faced. Backed by a massive horde of the dead it is seemingly a fight they cannot win. The question of what to do and the fear it breeds will infect the communities and give rise to paranoia, propaganda, secret agendas, and infighting that will test them as individuals and as a society. The very idea of whether civilization can survive in a world filled with the dead hangs in the balance.

Following "The Walking Dead", viewers can catch an all-new episode of "Talking Dead" hosted by Chris Hardwick at 10:08 p.m. ET/PT, featuring "The Walking Dead" actress Eleanor Matsuura and "This Is Us" actor Chris Sullivan.

AMC's in-depth documentary series "Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America," continues with an all-new episode Sunday, November 3rd at Midnight ET/PT. In the fourth episode, "Elevators: 1996" Hip hop's southern voice breaks through with an unsuspecting song that redefines rap's cultural and geographic boundaries. Guest stars in this episode include Big Boi, T.I., Pharell, Ludacris, Jermaine Dupri, La La Anthony and Greg Street.

Artists, their collaborators and other influential musical and cultural figures deconstruct compositions, revisit the impact the song had on them personally, and dissect the socio-economic and cultural conditions that inspired the landmark work and gave voice to a generation. "Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America" is part of AMC's Visionaries series from Oscar and Emmy-winning Jigsaw Productions in association with Two One Five Entertainment. In addition to Thompson, Trotter, and Gibney, the series is also executive produced by Shawn Gee, Stacey Offman, Richard Perello, and Shea Serrano. Angie Day, Erik Parker and One9 also serve as co-executive producers.

Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, Alex Gibney serve as the show's executive producers, and Erik Parker and One9 are the directors.
