THEN LATE NIGHT, EXPLORE THE CULTURAL IMPACT OF RUN-DMC’S ‘ROCK BOX’ ON AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF AMC’S “HIP HOP: THE SONGS THAT SHOOK AMERICA”
This week on AMC Networks, all-new episodes of “The Walking Dead” and “Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America.”
“The Walking Dead” continues on Sunday, October 27th at 9:00 p.m. ET/CT. In the new episode, “Silence The Whisperers”, the Alexandrians are still paranoid and riled up over the threat of the Whisperers and take their fear out on Negan. Meanwhile, back at Hilltop, the group deals with an unexpected safety issue.
“The Walking Dead” is a story that started 10 years ago with one man trying to find his family. That family grew and gradually communities took shape. They fought and survived, thrived and gave birth to a new generation. It is a tale of humankind and there are more stories to tell. It is now Spring, a few months after the end of Season nine, when our group of survivors dared to cross into Whisperer territory during the harsh winter. The collected communities are still dealing with the after effects of Alpha’s horrific display of power, reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them, all while organizing themselves into a militia-style fighting force, preparing for a battle that may be unavoidable. But the Whisperers are a threat unlike any they have ever faced. Backed by a massive horde of the dead it is seemingly a fight they cannot win. The question of what to do and the fear it breeds will infect the communities and give rise to paranoia, propaganda, secret agendas, and infighting that will test them as individuals and as a society. The very idea of whether civilization can survive in a world filled with the dead hangs in the balance.
Following “The Walking Dead”, viewers can catch an all-new episode of “Talking Dead” hosted by Chris Hardwick at 10:04p.m. ET/CT, featuring “Breaking Bad” actor Matt Jones.
