FX Sets Fall Premiere Dates; When Does American Horror Story Return?

at .  Updated at . Comments

We're certain you haven't forgotten it's Tyrant Eve (Season 3 begins tomorrow!), but now we have even MORE FX news to keep you cozy.

That's right. One of the best kept secrets in Hollywood – the premise of American Horror Story – actually has a premiere date. 

Can you even believe something in this business can be kept secret that long? 

The Countess - American Horror Story

The real shocker is it's not waiting until October to come back. 

Buckle up kiddos, because American Horror Story premieres Wednesday, September 14 at 10/9c!!!

But, that's not all!!

The new comedy from Donald Glover (and starring Donald Glover) titled Atlanta will be premiering on Tuesday, September 6 at 10/9c

The "official" scoop from Atlanta follows, but I've seen the pilot, and trying to discern all of this stuff is not easy, which is good. It's HILARIOUS. 

In Atlanta, two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. “Earn Marks” (Donald Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground.

“Alfred Marks” (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life.

“Darius” (Lakeith Lee Stanfield) is Alfred’s right-hand man and visionary. “Vanessa” (Zazie Beetz) is Earn’s best friend and the mother of Earn’s daughter.

Glover serves as Executive Producer, along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment. Atlanta is produced by FX Productions.

We all know we've been missing (terribly) the presence of Louis C.K. on FX, but he'll be showing up as a co-creator and executive producer on Pamela Adlon's new show, Better Things, premiering Thursday, September 8 at 10/9c. Here's the official scoop!

Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles.

She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street.

Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well. Sometimes, heaping the love on when she feels guilty.

Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while.

Adlon serves as Executive Producer alongside Louis C.K., Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment. Better Things is produced by C.K.’s production company Pig Newton for FX Productions.

Tyrant returns TOMORROW and we'll have an interview up IN THE MORNING with creator Howard Gordon. What a great guy! He was at the ATX Festival a few weeks ago and sitting down with him was not only a privilege, but a joy.

I watched the entire series on Hulu in about three days. I'm not saying it's going to be easy to do it all by airtime tomorrow night, but it's doable.

The Strain returns Sunday, August 28 at 10/9c and I know you strainiacs are just waiting for that one to come back. So mark your calendars now!!

And You're the Worst, simply one of the very best comedies EVER PRODUCED (says me) returns on Wednesday, August 31 at 10/9c. If you haven't watched all of the seasons up to now, do yourself a favor. WATCH IT.
