The fifth iteration of FX’s American Horror Story hasn’t yet filmed enough Hotel footage for a proper trailer, but Ryan Murphy and the expansive cast took to TCA with plenty of new details on the fall premiere. Not only do we know what each character will be, we’ve also learned that past Horror Story characters will check in over time. Plus, free poster!

As fans of Louis C.K. and FX’s Louie have experienced since the third season, the revered comedian’s creativity and hectic schedule occasionally place longer gaps between seasons than fans would like. Bad news, we’re afraid, as Louie may take its longest “extended hiatus” yet, even as Louis C.K. remains in business at FX.
FX has released a flurry of news from the ongoing Television Critics Association press tour, between a renewed Strain and its hottest premieres, but the latest news might prove more worrisome. After six seasons, Archer will move to FXX (gaining a new companion series), while FX has officially granted Louie star Pamela Adlon her own series.
Now that FX’s TCA presence has fully gotten underway (infecting us all with a third Strain), some of the fall’s most anticipated releases have their official premieres. Not only does the hotly-awaited Fargo have a Season 2 date to slide into the ‘70s, but so too will the American Horror Story: Hotel open for business alongside The Bastard Executioner.
Whatever you make of FX’s Guillermo del Toro-adapted vampire thriller The Strain, the vampire apocalypse isn’t about to end with Team Eph’s current run. The network has officially infected the series with a Season 3 renewal, bringing more eye-worms and towering Strigoi to New York City streets in 2016.
Both Sons of Anarchy and True Blood have gotten far enough in the rear-view mirror that we’re looking ahead to Kurt Sutter’s FX Bastard Executioner on the horizon, but it seems the former two almost had an insanely weird crossover. Not only had True Blood couple Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin sought roles in the final ride of Sons of Anarchy, but with a much less healthy relationship than real life.
Per E! Online, Criss has entered negotiations to guest in the Hotel Halloween installment as Silver Lake hipster Justin, who books a stay at the titular hotel with his girlfriend in hopes of escaping trick-or-treaters, only to end up on Kathy Bates’ bad side for demanding too much of room service. Bates’ character heads the establishment, and in turn offers “a Halloween trick they will never forget.”
Kurt Sutter’s FX Bastard Executioner should prove one of the more interesting experiments of the fall (and not just by casting Ed Sheeran), and even after its first trailer, each teaser takes us a little closer into a world of medieval horror. Swords swing, blood flies, and supporting cast are all on display in a new round of Bastard Executioner teases.
Kurt Sutter’s FX Sons of Anarchy followup The Bastard Executioner has shown off a few bits and pieces in recent weeks, but for those worried the 14th century setting would rule out Sons’ taste in music, artists will at least be present in some form. Enter The Bastard Executioner’s newest arrival, Ed Sheeran! No, we’re not kidding.
Earlier this week, we were saddened to learn of the passing of Archer voice and original SNL castmember George Coe, at the age of 86. And while Coe (and his character Woodhouse)’s contributions often went unappreciated on the animated FX spy comedy, the network has compiled the late actor’s work to pay tribute.
