Studios around the world have been shut down for months due to COVID-19, raising questions about how many new releases we’ll see—or rather won’t see—for the rest of 2020. But FX is already looking ahead to 2021. The network announced its original programming lineup from now through next year, a slate that includes all new shows, docuseries, and TV movies, along with some returning favorites.
It also includes some things that had been originally scheduled for this year. No word on when/if those things will shift to next year. FX is particularly vague on the “when” of everything.
FX shared their 2021 original lineup on Twitter. They include:
A Teacher: a ten-episode limited series starring Kate Mara and Nick Robinson. It “explores the story behind the mugshot of a female high school teacher caught in an affair with her male student, revealing the complexities and consequences of these illegal relationships.”
The Old Man: a drama starring Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, and Amy Brenneman. The movie follows “a former CIA officer, living off the grid” who “finds himself on the run from people who want to kill him.”
Y: The Last Man: starring Diane Lane and based on Brian K. Vaughn’s graphic novel, the series is “set in a post-apocalyptic world” and follows Y, the last surviving male human on the planet.
