FX Network Sets Fall Premiere Dates for Donald Glover's 'Atlanta' + 'American Horror Story' Season 6


FX today announced the premiere dates for the network’s 2016 fall line up.

Of note, Donald Glover’s much-anticipated “Atlanta” will make its premiere on Tuesday, September 6 at 10pm; and the next installment of the “American Horror Story” franchise (which we know Angela Bassett is returning for) will debut on September 14, a Wednesday, at 10pm.

Still no word on what next season’s “American Horror Story” story and setting will be; Glover’s “Atlanta” will unfold over a 10-episode first season, each a half-hour long, revolving around two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene whose opposing views on art versus commerce, success and race, will make their quest anything but easy.

Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Lee Stanfield and Zazie Beetz all join Glover in the series.
