It looks like Netflix has a new licensing deal with AMC because a number of AMC shows are reportedly coming to the streaming platform in the future. More on this below.

First, we must start off by saying that this is a rumor. Neither Netflix nor AMC has spoken about a new licensing deal they have in place. We've learned this information from What's on Netflix. On June 15, the news outlet reported that five AMC shows will be landing on Netflix US soon. Those shows are Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire, Preacher, Fear the Walking Dead, Into the Badlands and Monsieur Spade.

However, What's on Netflix was unable to provide any Netflix release dates for these shows. That's why we're going to take this information with a grain of salt. If these AMC series really do end up landing on Netflix, you'll definitely be the first to know. But for now, don't go getting your hopes up.

Below, we shared what each AMC show is about and who stars in them.
