By now, superhero TV fans are more or less used to series not maintaining much connection with their cinematic peers, but FX and FOX’s X-Men two-fer of Legion and an untitled mutant series sparks hope anew. To wit, X-Men director Bryan Singer says Legion could take place in the movie universe after all, while both “will relate to future X-Men movies.”
Now that Amazon’s John Krasinski-starring Jack Ryan has a formal greenlight, it’s time to wonder what the new series brings to the table that decades of movies couldn’t. Krasinski himself offers a few hints, including movie-level budgets and stunts, and tackling a new ripped-from-the-headlines issue every year.
FX’s The Strain has tried out a few different promotional strategies for Season 3, and its new credits might be the clearest depiction yet. The Guillermo del Toro vampire drama takes a third stab at flashy new titles, looking a bit like The Walking Dead meets American Horror Story.
Ryan Murphy may be juggling a handful of projects at the moment, but his new anthology series ‘Feud’ is shaping up to have quite a fantastic cast.
The endless mystery approach to American Horror Story Season 6 has proven … trying, to say the least, but however it pays off, future seasons won’t use the same approach. So says creator Ryan Murphy, who also claims the story connections will “explode” in Seasons 7 and 8.
If ever a horror franchise seemed tailor-made for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, American Horror Story would be it. So it is, that this fall will bring us a new maze attraction based on select seasons of Ryan Murphy’s FX fever dream, scary clowns and all.
Even as former Community star Donald Glover graced FX with his presence at the TCA press tour panel, most Atlanta promos have cryptically placed the cast in a backwards scenario. At long last, Ernest “Earn” Marks steps forth with a formal trailer for the Twin Peaks-style series, making Donald Glover a family man.
Earlier this week, the mystery surrounding American Horror Story Season 6 got a bit more complex, as FX boss John Landgraf revealed that the majority of existing teasers have deliberately misdirected fans on the theme. Now, a new official promo points in an intriguing direction, but we have to ask – did FX shoot itself in the foot with this “misdirect” approach?
FX bosses have made clear that American Crime Story would plumb a broader criminal focus than The People v. O.J. Simpson, noting early on that Hurricane Katrina would form Season 2's main story. Now, we know the as-yet-untitled follow-up will take advantage of additional episodes, casting some of the nation’s most notable figures.
The moment American Crime Story indicated Season 2 would follow The People v. O.J. Simpson with a focus on Hurricane Katrina, we knew the series had a broad definition of “crime.” In fact, FX bosses don’t want to return future seasons to a courtroom anytime soon, nor would they revisit any of the famed O.J. Simpson participants. Sorry, Sarah Paulson.
