FX has revealed the premiere dates for several shows in its highly anticipated summer 2021 slate, including American Horror Stories, American Horror Story: Double Feature, Archer Season 12, What We Do in the Shadows Season 3, Y: The Last Man, and more. The network announced the dates in a series of tweets, as well as a press release with more in-depth synopses for each series.

These shows begin arriving in July and stretch into September. Here's the full list of upcoming FX summer release dates, some of which will air first on the network or on FXX and stream on Hulu the following day, while others are streaming exclusively on Hulu:

  • American Horror Stories: Thursday, July 15 exclusively on FX on Hulu
  • Reservation Dogs: Monday, August 9 exclusively on FX on Hulu
  • American Horror Story: Double Feature: Wednesday, August 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX
  • Archer Season 12: Wednesday, August 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FXX
  • What We Do in the Shadows Season 3: Thursday, September 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX
  • Impeachment: American Crime Story: Tuesday, September 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX
  • Y: The Last Man: Monday, September 13 exclusively on FX on Hulu
  • Untitled B.J. Novak Anthology Series: Thursday, September 16 exclusively on FX on Hulu

Among the most highly anticipated of these, for us, are the two American Horror Story dates. The first, American Horror Stories' July 15 arrival, will be the first AHS spin-off, described as "a weekly anthology series that will feature a different horror story each episode." Then, on August 25, the AHS Double Feature will bring the tenth season of the main show to air.

Of course, we can't forget What We Do in the Shadows Season 3 on September 2. Season 2 earned GameSpot's award for the best TV show of 2020; we're expecting great things from the addictive vampire comedy's third season. Here's the official synopsis:

"After the shocking season two finale, we find the housemates in a panic about what to do with Guillermo after discovering that he is a vampire killer. This season, the vampires are elevated to a new level of power and will encounter the vampire from which all vampires have descended, a tempting Siren, gargoyles, werewolf kickball, Atlantic City casinos, wellness cults, ex-girlfriends, gyms and supernatural curiosities galore. Plus, Colin Robinson is turning 100. And Nandor, faced with his own eternal-life crisis, tries to inject his life with more meaning. Will he find love or is he destined to be an immortal bachelor with 37 ex-wives?"

Of the new shows premiering, we're especially excited about the long-awaited adaptation of the Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra comics series Y: The Last Man. The series follows the last two male mammals left on earth. Here's the description from FX:

"Y: The Last Man traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event decimates every mammal with a Y chromosome but for one cisgender man and his pet monkey. The series follows the survivors in this new world as they struggle with their efforts to restore what was lost and the opportunity to build something better."

Elsewhere on the list, Reservation Dogs is "a half-hour comedy that follows the exploits of four Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma who steal, rob and save in order to get to the exotic, mysterious and faraway land of California," created and executive produced by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi; Archer Season 12 will present the titular spy and his crew with "a new threat: a spy conglomerate known as IIA (International Intelligence Agency);" Impeachment: American Crime Story will tackle the Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton scandal of the '90s; and the untitled B.J. Novak anthology is described as "a daring and ambitious new half-hour anthology series about people figuring out timeless moral questions in unprecedented times."
