Five seasons in, American Horror Story: Hotel has become something of a nexus point for the series, dipping back through multiple seasons and seemingly unifying some core characters. Now, it seems one of the Hotel residents will return for the finale as their Season 1 Murder House counterpart, and might raise a few eyebrows along the way.

The fun of American Horror Story (if there’s any left to be had) lies in charting the actors that resurface from year to year, some taking central roles in each installment, and others weaving intermittently. Coven and Freak Show star Emma Roberts apparently missed out on her chance for Hotel, but will likely return for another round in Season 6, it seems.
The second season of FX critical darling Fargo returned to 1979 to chronicle the “Sioux Falls Massacre” that an elder Lou Solverson mentioned in Season 1, while the Season 3 renewal had fans wondering which direction the next true crime story might travel. Wonder no longer, as Fargo Season 3 will return to the modern day, potentially spotlighting some familiar characters along the way.
FX and Ryan Murphy’s incoming American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson has kept us all delighted by its ridiculous photos and over-dramatized teasers, even if the prolific cast has been left to obscurity. Now, the court of FX has finally unsealed the full trailer for The People v. O.J. Simpson, and it is every bit the absurdity we expected.
Break out the Trash Juice, Gretchen and Jimmy are slowly eking their way out from under the garbage fire that is their relationship. FXX has officially renewed critical darling You’re the Worst for a third season in 2016, simultaneously signing creator Stephen Falk for an overall development deal of additional series.
It’s hard to believe that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be going strong through an eleventh season, its second now on FXX, but the Paddy’s Pub gang doesn’t appear to have lost any steps in the barrel-full of new promos. Check in with Charlie, Dee, Mac, Dennis and Frank with over half a dozen new looks at Always Sunny Season 11!
Fargo Season 2 may not garner quite the same ratings as its predecessor (despite critical raves), and showrunner Noah Hawley seems to have picked up a few other projects in the meantime, but you can bet that another homespun tale of murder and mayhem is on its way. FX has officially renewed Fargo for a third season in our future, don’t cha know?
Any surprise that Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter would dive right back into FX for medieval drama The Bastard Executioner was compounded by the series’ lackluster performance, quietly airing its season finale only last night. That “season” has notably, and publicly become “series,” as Sutter himself opted to announce its cancellation via a Hollywood Reporter ad.
Last November, Ryan Murphy revealed that every season of his American Horror Story anthology series was connected. So far the show has made minor call backs to previous seasons and reprised characters. But there have to be more clues that connect all five seasons in a bigger way, right? Right.
We’re barely halfway through November, and already FX and FXX are gearing up their winter wares for 2016. The cable network has set official premieres for the eleventh season of Always Sunny, as well as the premiere of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story, two comedies and more.
