AMC will revive “Fear the Walking Dead” in the spring, giving fans an unbroken string of zombie apocalypse drama stretching from February — when “The Walking Dead” returns — through May.

The second season of “Fear” will premiere Sunday, April 10, a week after the season finale of “The Walking Dead.” The new season will run for 15 episodes, with the first seven set for spring and the remaining eight airing later in 2016.

A new season of “Fear the Walking Dead” also means more “Talking Dead,” which will again follow “Fear” at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

AMC will also debut two more shows in the spring: Miniseries “The Night Manager,” starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, premieres Tuesday, April 19 — a new night of originals for the channel. Season 3 of “Turn: Washington’s Spies” debuts Monday, April 25, taking over the 10 p.m. Monday spot from “Better Call Saul.”
