How he met his new series.
AMC also announced renewals for three more series: Both "Better Call Saul" and "Fear the Walking Dead" were renewed for their fifth seasons, with "McMafia" renewed for Season 2. "The Terror" had already been renewed, and announced with a new setting.
Back to Jason Segel. He both created and will star in "Dispatches From Elsewhere," which follows "a group of ordinary people who stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life" and "come to find that the mystery winds far deeper than they ever imagined."
Jason Segel: "I am thrilled to be telling this story at AMC. I truly could not imagine a better team and a more perfect home for this material."
AMC programming president David Madden: "AMC has a proven history of finding shows that rise above, in every sense, and we think 'Dispatches from Elsewhere' will be an incredible addition to that club. This is a very special project based on a truly unique premise and peopled by vivid characters, all driven by Jason’s wildly creative vision. We’re thrilled for audiences to see this bold, witty and enthralling series."
And now we have another show to look forward to watching ... whenever it's ready to be dispatched!
Meanwhile, "Better Call Saul" Season 4 premieres Monday, August 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. "Fear the Walking Dead" will return for the second half of Season 4 on Sunday, August 12.
