FX has set the premiere date for “American Horror Story: 1984,” as well as the returns of “Mayans M.C.,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Mr Inbetween.”

Below are their respective premiere dates, in chronological order.

“Mayans M.C.” Season 2: Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 10/9c.

“Mr Inbetween” Season 2: Thursday, Sept. 12 at 10/9c.

“American Horror Story: 1984”: Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10/9c.

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s” Season 14: Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 10/9c.

In classic “AHS” fashion, we don’t know much about “1984.”

“I will tell you nothing, except that I think it’s awesome,” executive producer Tim Minear told TheWrap last month. “I think it’s gonna be really scary but a lot of fun, like it always is. And that if you have a taste for ’80s horror, you’re in for a treat.”

When we asked if the decision to do a slasher-themed season was related to that particular brand of horror’s recent resurgence, thanks to movies like last year’s “Halloween” sequel and 2017’s “Happy Death Day,” Minear said probably not.

“Generally, Ryan [Murphy] is ahead of the zeitgeist as opposed to following it,” he told us. “So what I would say is that this has been an area that Ryan has talked about since I’ve known him and it’s just a real sweet spot for him. And I think it was time for him to do it.”
