Embracing our interconnectedness from home, AMC is launching a refreshing new weekly series titled Friday Night In with The Morgans, a half-hour video-chat-based show hosted by Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead) and his wife Hilarie Burton Morgan (One Tree Hill) from their farm in upstate New York.

Friday Night In with The Morgans premieres Friday, April 17 at 10:00pm/9c on AMC. Guests include Christian Serratos (Selena: The Series, The Walking Dead), Sarah Wayne Callies (Council of Dads, Unspeakable, Colony, The Walking Dead), Mark Duplass (The League), and Katie Aselton (The League, Legion).

Alright folks. Gonna try something here…. very much, with your help, going to figure this out as we go! Premiers April 17 on AMC at 10pm. @jensenackles and his better half @danneelackles512, and my hugely talented costar, the beautiful @christianserratos (I thought she was next week… NOPE! She’s in #1!!!) will be joining myself and MY better half @hilarieburton. I will be throwing out a bunch more information as I get it… but the plan is to maybe smile and laugh in a time that has been very hard to smile, much less laugh. We will be interacting with fans and I’m sure, NOT fans as well, which is always a good time! I now need to figure out some hashtags… hold while I do some thinking… xoxojd @amc_tv @amcthewalkingdead @themischieffarm @hilarieburton @amctalkingdead

The special guests also include Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) and his wife Danneel Ackles (One Tree Hill), the couple who introduced the Morgans, as well as family friend and local physician Dr. Sharagim Kemp.

Each episode will have a free-flowing, raw feel featuring unfiltered conversation about how we’re all getting through this unprecedented moment, as this charismatic couple connect with friends, neighbors, animals and the broader community of fans. Each week they will come together for conversations about how they are handling life in quarantine, practically helping communities, finding joy and even humor in these unprecedented times, entertaining themselves, and others, while in isolation – all done via video chat.

“We have been a part of the AMC family for a long time and are honored to create this comforting space with them,” said Morgan and Burton.

“From our home here at Mischief Farm, we look forward to shining a light on those who are doing good in the world, catching up with old friends and connecting with the awesome fan base we’ve gotten to know over the years.”

Friday Night In with The Morgans

“As a lot of production has come to a screeching halt across our industry – and as we all are figuring out how to get through each strange day – we loved the idea of experimenting with the wonderful Mr. and Mrs. Morgan aka Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton,” said Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks’ Entertainment Group and AMC Studios.

“And this really will be an experiment – it’s the antidote to the overly rehearsed, overly manicured glimpse into somebody’s perfect life – it will be full of heart, messy conversation, hardworking humans who are on the frontlines, and guests who might reveal some previously unknown talents. Ultimately, it’s a shot at some raw and real entertainment that will uplift and connect with our audiences.”

Friday Night In with The Morgans is executive produced by Michael Davies, Tammy Johnston, Brandon Monk and Steve Markowitz for Embassy Row, along with Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton Morgan.
