FX spinoff network FXX may still seem like the pasture for less favorable shows, but its September lineup of premieres should put plenty of eyes in focus. Not only will the final season of sports fantasy comedy The League premiere this coming September, but also the second run of critical breakout You’re The Worst.

Whether or not the 2015 Emmy nominations reflect it, FX’s anti-romance You’re The Worst burst onto the comedy scene as one of the better series of the year, soon continuing its greatness with a second run on FXX. We don’t yet know its September premiere date, but the first Worst Season 2 teasers are all we need to destroy what remains of romantic love.
FXX’s surrealist Jay Baruchel dating comedy Man Seeking Woman hasn’t drafted as much attention as some of its cable brethren, but lives to fight another day. The network has officially announced that Josh’s outlandish quest for the right girl will continue on into 2016, giving Man Seeking Woman a Season 2 renewal.
FXX’s epic Simpsons marathon of all 522 episodes took a lengthy chunk out of all our lives, but fans soon noticed the landmark binge taking something else: whole sections of the screen to accommodate older 4:3 episodes into an “improved” widescreen format. Now, we old men need no longer yell at clouds, as The Simpsons will return to their original 4:3 glory on FXX’s Simpsons World app.
We’ve not yet crossed Thanksgiving into December, but the rapidly-approaching 2015 slate of FX and FXX’s returning series has us ready for the new year. The cable networks have officially scheduled the season 6 premiere of ‘Archer,’ as well as the sixth and final season premiere of ‘Justified’ for January 2015, along with a third year for ‘The Americans,’ 10th for ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ and more.
A few weeks ago saw 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' delivering its highest-concept promos to date, launching the Paddy's Pub gang into orbit for our first look at season 10, but why wait until 2015 for any actual footage? See what horrible misadventures Charlie, Dennis, Dee, Mac and Frank get up to with our first season 10 clips, and some a-Peele-ing new guest stars along the way!
Granted 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' the Paddy's Pub gang might feel a little cooler this year as the long-running FX-FXX comedy debuts its tenth season in January 2015, as opposed to its usual fall airdate. Still red-hot however, is the first teaser trailer for season 10 of the well-aged comedy, which sends Mac, Charlie, Dee, Dennis and Frank into orbit, Michael Bay-style.
'The Simpsons' have been all over the internet this past week, perhaps even moreso than usual, as FXX continues on with its 12-day marathon of all 522 episodes of the landmark animated series. If you thought that America's favorite family would take a break however, wait until you see how FXX plans to parse out its library of 'The Simpsons' episodes five nights a week, presumably until the end of time.
Everyone is getting in on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, including Homer Simpson! We've already seen Marvel, 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and 'Game of Thrones' stars heed the call, but now watch your favorite TV dad from Springfield join the ranks.
A few weeks ago saw Warner Bros. unleashing its full docket of Comic-Con 2014 panels, but 20th Century Fox and the fine folk at FX are certainly no slouches.
