Yeah, Ryan Murphy and FX like sticking to the anthology format. It definitely works. American Horror Story has thrived for almost seven years now.

The series will debut Sunday, March 5 at 10/9C.

Additionally, FX also announced that Archer would make the transition to FXX on Wednesday, April 5 at 10/9C. 

Also, Donald Glover has inked an overall production deal with FX productions. This comes as no surprise when you consider the breakout success of Atlanta.

The show won a Golden Globe award on Sunday for the Best TV Series Comedy or Musical. Glover serves as the series star and creator of the show. 

He also took home the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a TV Comedy or Musical. 

“Donald is a remarkable artist, effortlessly shifting from actor to writer, producer, director and musician to create one amazing project after another,” Nick Grad said.

Atlanta FX

“Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city. We’re proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television.”

With all of the good news, there is some bad. 

Atlanta will not be returning until 2018 due to Glover's rigorous production schedule. He is set to appear in an upcoming Star Wars movie about Han Solo.
