FX Networks
FX’s fall premiere dates for American Horror Story: HotelThe Bastard Executioner, and Fargo are here. FX’s lineup will introduce us to fresh stories as medieval epic The Bastard Executioner debuts and both Hotel and Fargo add new installments to their respective anthology series.

First up will be the two-hour premiere of the 10-episode first season of Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 10/9 c. Set in the 14th century, the story will follow Wilkin Brattle (Lee Jones), a warrior who becomes — you guessed it — an executioner. The cast also includes FX’s Sons of Anarchy alum Katey Sagal, Stephen Moyer, and Flora Spencer-Longhurst, as well as uber-popular British pop singer Ed Sheeran in a recurring role.

Next to air will be American Horror Story: Hotel on Wednesday, Oct. 7, also at 10/9 c. The 13-episode 5th season will explore creepy chaos at a mysterious hotel. As usual, Hotel features an impressive cast, including Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock, and even Lady Gaga as the hotel owner.

Fargo’s next installment comes shortly thereafter, airing on Monday, Oct. 12 at 10/9 c. The 10-episode second season of the Noah Hawley-created series will remain in the Fargo universe we know and love, yet bring us back to the ’70s. A younger Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) will investigate what turns out to be a huge crime problem in his small area of the Midwest. Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and Ted Danson also star.

We’ll excuse you while you go mark your calendar and set your DVR now.

American Horror Story: Hotel reserves room for another familiar face

Now checking into American Horror Story: Hotel is Naomi Campbell. The British supermodel will be joining the FX horror anthology for a muti-episode arc, according to TVLine.

Fresh off a recurring role on Fox's Empire, she'll start shooting Hotel next week. Campbell's role fits nicely with her years of modeling experience, as she'll play a fashion editor. Unfortunately, it looks like her character won't have a very pleasant stay at the hotel; TVLine reports that she'll pay "the ultimate price for her critiques."

The first Fargo season 2 trailer takes us to a new era, introduces new cast
fx premiere dates fargo season 2

The first trailer for Fargo season 2 is here, and even though the series has moved to another time and place, it will still be jam-packed with blood, tears, punches, and cops. Along with the violence, the video weaves in the dark humor that the FX comedy-crime drama does so well.

"Do yourself a favor. Lock the door," is a major takeaway from the trailer (as well as the video's description on FX Network's YouTube channel), because it's clear that things are going to get dicey. Now set in 1979 and focusing on Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Luverne, Minnesota, in addition to Fargo, the plot lines will remain connected to the larger Fargo universe. Patrick Wilson will play a younger version of police officer Lou Solverson, who was played by Keith Carradine in the first season, while Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons star as Peggy and Ed Blomquist.

Lady Gaga makes her American Horror Story: Hotel debut in new teaser
american horror story hotel lady gaga new details

Lady Gaga is just one of many stars that we'll see in the upcoming American Horror Story: Hotel, but she's one of the most anticipated. By checking into Hotel, the singer is set to take on her first major TV role. A teaser released by FX Networks Monday offered the first look — albeit a short one — at the Mother Monster checking into the hotel on which the series focuses.

At just 10 seconds long, the teaser isn't exactly the most informative, but we do see Gaga's silver hand (complete with long fingernails and attached to her heavily ornamented arm) as she rings the check-in desk's bell for service. From the look of it, the lounge singer she plays is just as into sartorial flair as the pop star herself is. American Horror Story executive producer Ryan Murphy admitted that he couldn't help but make fashion part of her role during a Comic-Con panel on Sunday. "You want Lady Gaga to look a certain way. The designers have been coming out of the woodwork with looks for her," he added.
