Variety reports it’s the first time a TV show has premiered on Tumblr, now owned by Yahoo, and it also marks the first time AMC has screened an episode early via social media. The episode will be available until May 31st, the day before it debuts on TV. 

Indiewire caught the premiere at its SXSW screening in March and gave it an enthusiastic response. There’s more to come on the hotly anticipated new series, but for now head over to the Tumblr page or AMC’s website to see the show for yourself.
