1st Logo (199?-200?)

Logo: On a lush moving gradient green background, the letters "AMC" moves from the right to the middle as a diamond seen behind the letters scrolls back. As the "AMC" letters position themselves, a silver circle outline grows behind the diamond. The "AMC" and the diamond rest inside the circle, forming the AMC logo used from 1993-2002. As the company name and diamond form the logo inside the circle, the words "ORIGINAL" and "PRODUCTION" appear inside the outline of the circle.

Technique: The "AMC" text moving along, the circle growing, the company name and diamond scrolling back inside the circle, "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" appearing inside.

Music/Sounds: A lush orchestrated theme.

Availability: Extinct. Appeared on Behind the Screen and may have appeared on other shows AMC produced.


2nd Logo (October 31, 2010-March 31, 2013)

Logo: A green rectangle is seen that has "aMC" on the left in a smaller rectangle and "STUDIOS" is on the right side.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme to the show or silence.

Availability: Appeared on the first two seasons of both The Walking Dead and Talking Dead. It may be preserved in syndication, Netflix streaming and the Anchor Bay Entertainment DVD and Blu-ray releases of the show.

3rd Logo (October 14, 2012-October 23, 2016)

Logo: There is what appears to be several gold bars. A small part of one slides down and it says "aMC" in the style of the previous logo. "STUDIOS" is to the right in white.

Technique: The sliding of the gold bar. Done by Troika.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show or silence.

4th Logo (May 22, 2016-July 13, 2020)

Logo: A gold background is seen with a corner of a black rectangle on the left and a "ST" on the right. It zooms in a bit, then bounces back, revealing a black rectangle with the "aMC" from the previous two logos in a bright grayish-gold color, with "STUDIOS" to the right of it. The rectangle has a golden outline which shimmers.

5th Logo (October 4, 2020- )

Logo: On a black background, we see a thin rectangle zooms out, and moves, rotates to the left to reveal the "a" and "C" moves to the left and right between the "M" to form "aMC" from the 2nd logo and the rectangle stops rotating, with the word "STUDIOS" appear and moves to the right very slowly.

Technique: The rectangle zooming out, moving and rotating. This was designed by Trollbäck+Company.
