Late last year we learned the saddening, if expected news that Louis C.K. would step back from Louie once again, perhaps taking a Curb Your Enthusiasm approach with periodic returns. It doesn’t seem as if a few months have changed the comedian’s mind, as both he and FX “just don’t know” if and when Louie will return.

Yesterday saw a bit of bad news for one of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men TV series, as FOX’s Hellfire lost its showrunners, and now FX’s Legion has a minor caveat as well. Progress on Legion has advanced, though the series itself won’t be set in, or connect to the same X-Men universe of the films.
American Horror Story has fallen into a pattern (among other things), alternating between period and contemporary settings, so leave it to Ryan Murphy to switch things up in Season 6. The next Horror Story will indeed return to the past, but also keep one foot firmly planted in the present as well. Confused yet?
Centering around a Season 1 character seemed practically a footnote against the brilliance of Fargo Season 2, but Season 3 will certainly continue the tradition. FX confirms at least one character from past seasons will return for the 2010-set return, itself airing in 2017.
The Americans Season 4 has seemed a bit more heavily redacted than usual, owing to a later 2016 debut date than in past years. Now, we at least have a firm March premiere date, along with a gorgeous new poster espousing Philip and Elizabeth’s complicated relationship.
It’s been some time since Tracy Morgan first started putting together an FX comedy, a development process tragically marred by his infamous accident, though FX heads insisted they’d wait for the beloved SNL star. Now, Morgan has finally set a new FX comedy to producer and star in, joined by Key & Peele alum Jordan Peele.
Inexplicable Golden Globe-winner American Horror Story: Hotel still has one episode remaining in its run, but it won’t be long before Season 6 starts gearing up for pre-production. We know Lady Gaga has been invited back, but series creator Ryan Murphy seems to say Angela Bassett has already confirmed a return.
The moment that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association first announced the 2016 Golden Globe nominees, American Horror Story: Hotel star Lady Gaga raised a few eyebrows with a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Miniseries. Welp, guess who ended up taking home the award!
Even as the first season of FX’s American Crime Story seems to distance itself from its horrific predecessor with a focus on The People v. O.J. Simpson, it was always the series’ intent to focus on a new crime with future seasons. Now, we know that a potential Season 2 would focus on victims of Hurricane Katrina, per executive producer Ryan Murphy.
The X-Men franchise surprised fans with news that the Marvel-ous mutants would spawn not one, but two TV series, the more developed of which will see Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley taking on Charles Xavier’s son Legion. Now, our first official star has arrived, tapping Fargo Season 2 face Rachel Keller for a potentially rogue role.
