Fate’s unending cruelty has pushed Season 4 of FX’s The Americans as far as March 2016, even as the network has un-redacted our first official promos. People point silencers, and film trickery make it looks like they’re shooting each other, so lets relentlessly over-analyze our first look at The Americans Season 4!
The second season of FX powerhouse Fargo ended about as spectacularly as we’d hoped, closing a ribbon on the 1979 thriller with few overall deaths, but plenty of surprises all the same. That said, Season 2’s timing called into question if Season 3 could reasonably premiere within the span of 2016, while creator Noah Hawley confirms we’re more likely looking at a 2017 return to Fargo.
After only ten short weeks, Fargo has once again shoveled out the closing chapter of its blood-soaked story, as Season 2’s Sioux Falls massacre claimed yet more victims. Season 3 will be well on the way soon enough, but in the meantime, who won’t be taking in another Fargo sunrise after tonight’s “Palindrome?” And what familiar Season 1 characters put in surprise returns?
An unfortunate announcement for those familiar with Rose Siggins and American Horror Story: Freak Show, as the notable actor behind one of FX’s most memorable AHS characters has passed away. The real-life amputee and mother of two was remembered as a proud participant in the Ryan Murphy production as “Legless Suzi,” also documented in Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Extraordinary People.
We’re just days away from the Fargo finale to end all finales, as Season 2 wraps its bloody ‘70s-set Sioux Falls massacre, but one can’t help looking forward to the already-confirmed Season 3, set to return to modern-day. Now, showrunner Noah Hawley opens up on the appeal of a modern approach, as well as when we might expect Season 3 to premiere.
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.
