The fall will be busy for FX Networks, as September brings the premieres of Mayans M.C., American Horror Story season 8, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13, and the new series Mr. Inbetween. Between FX and FXX, there’ll be plenty to tune in for, as it not only marks the return of Kurt Sutter to the network with the Sons of Anarchy spinoff, but it also means a sooner-than-expected start for the new season of It’s Always Sunny, which finds a clever way to adjust to Glenn Howerton’s schedule now that he’s the lead of A.P. Bio over on NBC.
The new season also means that even though Ryan Murphy is moving to Netflix, his hit series American Horror Story is still coming back for an eighth season. This time around, Murphy and Co. are doing a crossover season, merging Murder House with Coven in what will be a storyline that full of subtlety and nuance for sure. Rounding out the fall premieres is the new series Mr. Inbetween, an Austrailan-set half-hour drama written and starring Scott Ryan as a criminal for hire trying to balance also having a normal life on the side.
With two returning series and a spinoff of one of FX’s biggest hits, Mr. Inbetween sounds a though it may have the toughest road to climb. Though, given that its an Australian co-production and also co-stars former Justified actor Damon Herriman (Dewey Crowe), it might wind up being the shiny new offering that audiences are looking for. Check out the premiere dates and synopses below:
“Mayans M.C., the next chapter in Kurt Sutter’s award-winning Sons of Anarchy saga, premieres Tuesday, September 4 at 10 PM ET/PT on FX.
Set in a post-Jax Teller world, Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo) is fresh out of prison and a prospect in the Mayans M.C. charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Now, EZ must carve out his new identity in a town where he was once the golden boy with the American Dream in his grasp. The series also stars Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, and Danny Pino. Recurring stars include Emilio Rivera, Frankie Loyal, Joseph Lucero, Vincent Rocco Vargas, Maurice Compte, Gino Vento, Tony Plana and Ada Maris. Mayans M.C. was co-created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. Norberto Barba directs the first two episodes. The series is executive produced by Sutter and Barba, with James as Co-Executive Producer. The 10-episode first season is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns with its 13th season on Wednesday, September 5 at 10 PM ET/PT on FXX.
The Gang Returns... mostly.... in the 13th season of the FXX original comedy series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito) return to their duplicitous, scheming ways at Paddy’s Pub, while Dennis (Glenn Howerton) takes on the new role of father in North Dakota. Last season, the Gang experienced new highs - Mac acknowledged his sexuality and Charlie convinced The Waitress, his longtime target of affection, to move in with him – and the lowest of lows - Frank became the official beverage sponsor of a terrorist group, Dee helped a man reach rock bottom, and Dennis was investigated for murder. Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history – an Eagles Super Bowl victory. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was created by Rob McElhenney. He also serves as executive producer along with Charlie Day, Michael Rotenberg, Nick Frenkel, Tom Lofaro, David Hornsby, and Megan Ganz. The show is produced by FX Productions.
American Horror Story, the groundbreaking anthology series from Ryan Murphy, returns for its eighth installment on Wednesday, September 12 at 10 PM ET/PT on FX.
Mr Inbetween, the new half-hour drama series created by and starring Scott Ryan, will premiere in September on FX.
In Mr Inbetween, Ryan plays “Ray Shoesmith,” a father, ex-husband, boyfriend and best friend: tough roles to juggle in the modern age. Even harder when you're a criminal for hire. The six-episode season, written by Ryan and directed by Nash Edgerton, stars Ryan, Damon Herriman, Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Jackson Tozer, Nicholas Cassim, Chika Yasumura and Matt Nable. The series was shot in Australia and is produced by Blue-Tongue Films and Jungle Entertainment, in association with FX Productions, Screen Australia and Create NSW. Ryan, Edgerton and Jason Burrows are Executive Producers and Michele Bennett is Producer.”
FX cheated a little by not releasing the exact date Mr. Inbetween will premiere, but perhaps there is a trailer in the works that will answer that question before too long. And, unsurprisingly, there’s no synopsis for American Horror Story, which is pretty much par for the course at this point in the series’ run. After the past few seasons have gotten by with limited marketing with regard to what the actual storyline will cover, it seems safe to say that FX is relatively confident just knowing the crossover is happening will be enough to entice fans of the long-running series to check out this eighth installment.
Mayans M.C., American Horror Story, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Mr. Inbetween will all premiere in September on FX and FXX.
