AMC is handing out ALL the renewals!
Fear the Walking Dead may still be in the middle of its critically controversial Season 4, but AMC announced today that it's officially been picked up for Season 5. In more renewal news, Better Call Saul has also been given a fifth season renewal just ahead of the Season 4 premiere on August 6. Bob Odenkirk actually came out on stage at the Television Critics Association summer press tour to celebrate the announcement by showing reporters his "new tattoo," a large Better Call Saul heart tattoo on his butt with the August 6 premiere date atop it.
Joining in on the good fortune is AMC's new series McMafia, which has been renewed for a second season. This renewal comes just months after the show was embroiled in a bit of legal trouble thanks to a breach of copyright claim against BBC by a British writer, Wilf Varvill. It appears those legal troubles haven't stopped AMC from moving forward with McMafia.
Fear the Walking Dead returns Sunday, August 12 on AMC.
Better Call Saul returns Monday, August 6 on AMC
