It’s been almost a year since we heard the first details about the next season of Fargo, FX’s small screen riff on the Coen Brothers’ Oscar-winning 1996 movie. Last year, showrunner Noah Hawley cast Chris Rock as the lead of season 4, and today, the network has finally announced the other key members of the cast.
Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Paddington), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), and more are joining the show this season, which takes place in Kansas City in the 1950s. Discover the rest of the newly-announced cast (including a new personal favorite!) and find out who they’re all playing below. Read More »

When a show breaks narrative convention as much as FX’s Legion, in which entire episodes can take place during a split second, there’s only one way to possibly end it: by introducing time travel. Legion introduces Switch (Lauren Tsai) to help David Haller (Dan Stevens) conclude his journey.
Season three of Legion will be its last, but creator Noah Hawley is ending it on his own terms. David is seeking a time traveler to help him correct mistakes he’s made in the past, especially in his relationship with Syd (Rachel Keller), but also to stop Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) once and for all.
Lauren Shuler Donner, who brought the X-Men to the screen in 2000, produces Legion with Marvel Television. Shuler Donner spoke with /Film by phone about the final season of Legion, premiering tonight on FX.

FX has been developing a TV adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s acclaimed comic series Y: The Last Man for years, going as far as to commission a pilot that was picked up to series earlier this year. That seemed like great news, but the stumbles for this property continued: a few months ago, the series lost showrunners Aida Mashaka Croal and Michael Green due to “creative differences;” thankfully, FX decided to continue moving forward with it anyway.
The search was on to find a replacement, and now that search is over: Eliza Clark, who previously worked on Animal Kingdom and The Killing, has been hired to take over as the new showrunner. Read More »
Even though Dark Phoenix was the final installment of the X-Men franchise on the big screen, the legacy of the mutants, as they existed under the 20th Century Fox banner, still has one more breath to take.
The third and final season of the FX series Legion continues to the story of the mentally ill telekinetic mutant David Haller, who just might be the most powerful being on the planet. That’s a problem when he’s also mentally unstable, and the third season will bring his greatest challenge yet: fixing the past. Watch the Legion season 3 featurette to see how that will play out.

Elizabeth Banks will join her sisters in arms for equal rights in the FX limited series Mrs. America, which is (sadly) not a sequel to Mistress America. Banks joins the Mrs. America cast as Jill Ruckelshaus, a pro-choice, socially progressive Republican who was involved in the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment during the 1970s in FX’s nine-episode limited series from Emmy-winning writer Davhi Waller. But she’ll be butting heads with Cate Blanchett, who plays a prominent conservative who leads the unexpected backlash against the amendment.
