FX and Hulu Set Summer Premiere Dates For New and Returning Series

FX and Hulu - Reservation Dogs, What We Do In The Shadows, The Old Man

FX has revealed the eight new and returning shows that will be airing this summer on both the network, and via Hulu.

The new shows run the gamut from thrillers to comedy, with some animation and reality shows mixed in, plus three fan-favorites are returning for new seasons.

Here are the shows and their premiere dates:

The Old Man

June 16 is the premiere for “The Old Man,” starring Jeff Bridges as a former CIA operative living off the grid and John Lithgow as the FBI official tasked with tracking him down. Amy Brenneman also stars. It will kick off with two episodes then go weekly on the FX Network.

What We Do In The Shadows

July 12 sees the return of the vampire-comedy “What We Do In The Shadows” for its fourth season, with a two-episode premiere. According to the press release, season 4 finds them returning to their mansion, which is now “on the verge of total structural collapse.” Nadja opens a vampire nightclub, Nandor finds love, and Lazlo struggles trying to raise baby Colin to be anything other than an energy vampire.

American Horror Stories

July 21 is the date for installment two (they’re not calling it a season) of the anthology horror series, “American Horror Stories.” No word on what each of the stories will be about, but I’m hoping none of them will be more Murder House. The FX series will air on Hulu, not on the network.

Season 2 picks up with Bear seeking a male role model, Willie Jack concerned about the side effects of the curse she put on Jackie, and Cheese reuniting with “his grandmother who isn’t his grandmother.” It will kick off with two episodes, then go weekly on Hulu.
