AMC announced its plans for spring programming at the Televisions Critics Association Press tour today.

First up, mind your zombies, as Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 is set to make its debut on Sunday, April 10 at 9/8c, followed immediately by a new episode of Talking Dead, which will air post FtWD all season long.

Taking a cue from its older sibling, Fear The Walking Dead will feature a split 15-episode second season, with eight episodes airing this spring and the additional seven later in 2016.
