FX has unveiled the debut date for Kurt Sutter’s “Mayans M.C.” The cable channel has also set the returns for “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “American Horror Story.”
Comedy “Mr Inbetween” does not yet have a specific date, but it will start in September, FX said. So will all these other ones.
In “Mr Inbetween,” Scott Ryan plays “Ray Shoesmith,” a father, ex-husband, boyfriend and best friend: tough roles to juggle in the modern age. It’s even harder when you’re a criminal for hire, per FX’s teaser description.
The six-episode season, written by Ryan and directed by Nash Edgerton, also stars Damon Herriman, Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Jackson Tozer, Nicholas Cassim, Chika Yasumura and Matt Nable. “Mr Inbetween” was shot in Australia and is produced by Blue-Tongue Films and Jungle Entertainment, in association with FX Productions, Screen Australia and Create NSW. Ryan, Edgerton and Jason Burrows are executive producers and Michele Bennett is producer.
“Sons of Anarchy” spinoff “Mayans” will debut Tuesday, September 4 at 10 p.m.
Kurt Sutter’s new story is set in a post-Jax Teller world. Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo) is fresh out of prison and a prospect in the Mayans M.C. charter on the Cali/Mexi border, per FX. Now, EZ must carve out his new identity in a town where he was once the golden boy with the American Dream in his grasp.
The series also stars Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, and Danny Pino. Recurring stars include Emilio Rivera, Frankie Loyal, Joseph Lucero, Vincent Rocco Vargas, Maurice Compte, Gino Vento, Tony Plana and Ada Maris.
“Mayans M.C.” was co-created by Sutter and Elgin James. Norberto Barba directs the first two episodes. The series is executive produced by Sutter and Barba, with James as co-executive producer. The 10-episode first season is produced by Fox 21 TelevisionStudios and FX Productions.
“Always Sunny” returns Wednesday, September 5 at 10 p.m. Here are the specs on this coming run, straight from FX’s announcement:
The Gang Returns… mostly…. in the 13th season of the FXX original comedy series “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.” Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito) return to their duplicitous, scheming ways at Paddy’s Pub, while Dennis (Glenn Howerton) takes on the new role of father in North Dakota. Last season, the Gang experienced new highs — Mac acknowledged his sexuality and Charlie convinced The Waitress, his longtime target of affection, to move in with him — and the lowest of lows — Frank became the official beverage sponsor of a terrorist group, Dee helped a man reach rock bottom, and Dennis was investigated for murder.
Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history — an Eagles Super Bowl victory.
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” was created by Rob McElhenney. He also serves as executive producer along with Charlie Day, Michael Rotenberg, Nick Frenkel, Tom Lofaro, David Hornsby, and Megan Ganz. The show is produced by FX Productions.

“AHS” Season 8 begins Wednesday, September 12 at 10 p.m.
As per usual, creator Ryan Murphy is being quite cagey with details on his anthology show’s new run. We think we’ve got some here.
