AMC has announced a series of scripted original marathons to close out 2016, beginning with a series-long showing of Breaking Bad beginning Monday, December 26th at 12:00 p.m. The critical darling, which closed its much vaunted run with sky high ratings and consecutive Outstanding Drama Series Emmy wins, will run through Thursday, December 29th.
British co-production Humans, centering on a world with anthropomorphic robots called “synths,” will have its entire first season ran beginning Friday, December 30th at 9:00 a.m. Currently airing in the UK, the second season of Humans will begin Monday, February 13th at 10:00.
Fellow AMC sophomore Into the Badlands will also have its first season shown in advance of a second go-around, with its marathon set for Friday, December 30th beginning at 5:00 p.m. From Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville, The Shannara Chronicles), the series follows a warrior and a young boy who journey toward enlightenment.
Finally, ratings juggernaut The Walking Dead will have a three-season marathon beginning Friday, December 30th at 11:00 p.m. Season four through six of the series are set to run through Sunday, January 1st at 1:15 a.m.
