AMC has set official premiere dates for two of its returning series that both sound kind of like orders you’d yell at someone in very specific situations: Into The Badlands and Fear The Walking Dead. (It helps if you imagine they both have exclamation points at the ends of their titles.) The network—which renewed its flagship zombie series, the plain old, non-verb-based The Walking Dead, for a ninth season earlier today—announced that Fear will be back on April 15, with Badlands joining it a week later on April 22. That first episode of Fear The Walking Dead will air at 10 p.m.—the better, presumably to facilitate Lennie James’ Morgan and his movement from the parent show, which has its finale that night, to his new digs on the spin-off—before moving to 9 p.m. on subsequent weeks.

AMC has also tossed out the premiere dates for a few of its new shows, announcing that its new international thriller McMafia—created by Hossein Amini, whose screenwriting credits include Drive, 47 Ronin, and, uh…The Snowman—will hit screens on February 26. Ridley Scott’s naval drama The Terror, which stars Mad Men and The Crown favorite Jared Harris, arrives on March 26, and James Cameron’s docu-series AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story Of Science Fiction will debut on April 30.
