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.

3 Netflix shows we can’t wait to see in August
Two people stand in a field in A Good Girl's Guide to Murder.

It's nearly August, and there's a sense that summer is already winding down. The start of school looms over children's minds while adults no longer have to worry about where to vacation.

August is typically a slow month across the board, but nobody told that to Netflix. The streamer will still be cranking out the hits next month, and I've picked three under-the-radar shows that I believe are worth your attention. One takes a familiar IP into interesting directions, while the other two are foreign imports that are just as exciting as anything made in the USA.

It's the summer on Netflix, meaning several blockbusters are coming to the streaming service. The beginning of the month marked the arrival of Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, the fourth film in Eddie Murphy's action comedy franchise. Another new legacy sequel on Netflix is Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the fifth film in the Ghostbusters franchise.

These two massive titles will remain on Netflix for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, several movies will be departing the streamer at the end of the month. There are only a few days left in July, so watch these five movies before it's too late. Our picks include two terrific sports dramas and a hysterical romantic comedy.
