Eric Schrier, Entertainment President at FX, said: "We couldn't be more excited about our roster of new and returning shows slated through next year.
"It has been an extraordinary time for FX over these past three months with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business. We believe the continued strength of our original series coupled with the growing awareness of FX on Hulu as our streaming platform will make the FX brand stronger and more relevant and accessible than ever before."
