'Walking Dead', 'Mad Men' and 'The Killing' Premiere Dates Announced


AMC will attach a new reality series to 'Walking Dead' and add extra hour to the premiere of both 'Mad Men' and 'The Killing'.

AMC has announced the return dates of its prime series, "The Walking Dead", "Mad Men" and "The Killing". The apocalyptic series will go on air first, continuing the second half of the second season on Sunday, February 12 with the episode "Nebraska".

Immediately after "Walking Dead", AMC will air a new reality show called "Comic Book Men" at 10 P.M. ET/PT. The series is set in Kevin Smith's iconic comic shop Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, and captures the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture. The season consists of 6 one-hour episodes.

Like lead star Jon Hamm said last week, "Mad Men" season five will debut on Sunday, March 25, and AMC just confirmed that it would be a two-hour premiere beginning 9 P.M. ET/PT. The award-winning series has been on hiatus for over a year due to stalled contract negotiations between creator and showrunner Matt Weiner, AMC and Lionsgate.

Written by Matthew Weiner and directed by Jennifer Getzinger, the premiere episodes will also be available on amctv.com the Monday after air. The show would return to its regular slot on Sundays at 10 P.M. on Sunday, April 1.

Mystery drama "The Killing" will also have a two-hour premiere on Sunday, April 1 at 8 P.M.ET/PT for its second season. It will be back to its regular timeslot at 9 P.M. ET/PT the following week. "I can confirm the killer will be revealed in the Season 2 finale," the network's programming chief Joel Stillerman said during recent TCA press tour.
