THE BEST SHOWS TO WATCH ON AMC+
Here are four of the top TV shows on AMC+ to give you a taste of the wide-ranging content they have to offer.
‘THE WALKING DEAD’
The American horror series is no doubt one of the best zombie shows out there. And AMC+ has its own dedicated network to the show, so you’ll have 24/7 access to The Walking Dead’s past seasons and The Walking Dead Universe with instant access to all of the show’s spinoffs such as Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond).
There has never been a better time to get on board, as the franchise expands this year with The Walking Dead: Dead City coming out in 2023. Based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, the gritty drama has been on our screens for over a decade, and led the way for the zombie apocalypse genre.
It follows a group of survivors in America who travel in search of security, balancing brutal interpersonal conflicts with the deadly walkers that roam the country.

For fans of Better Call Saul, another great show available to watch on AMC, Lucky Hank is a new black comedy starring Bob Odenkirk as Professor “Hank” Devereaux Jr.
Hank is the unlikely chairman of an English department at an underfunded college who becomes increasingly unhinged navigating a mid-life crisis among the chaos of personal and academic life.
The gripping British crime drama set in a small Yorkshire town has received widespread critical acclaim and should be on anyone’s watch list who is a fan of the genre. The show follows Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire), a determined police sergeant who is tasked with investigating a series of violent crimes, but along the way she must confront her own demons, including the tragic death of her daughter.
Happy Valley‘s third and final season will be available on AMC+ starting in May.
Considered one of the greatest shows of all time, Mad Men first aired on AMC over 15 years ago and has received critical acclaim and numerous awards for its writing, acting and production values. It’s set in an advertising agency in the 60s, but really it is a show about so much more, illustrating the complexity of human identity and relationships. All with the backdrop of amazing 1960s style.
