Aw jeez! The second season of Fargo will be a family affair.
At the Television Critics Association fall previews on Monday, Fargo creator Noah Hawley announced the time period for the second season. "If you were paying attention to Season 1, we made a lot of reference to Sioux Falls, [South Dakota]. That was not an accident," he said. "It will take place in 1979 and take place around ... Luverne, Minnesota and Fargo and Sioux Falls."

As any longtime fan of Sons of Anarchy might expect, the final season of FX's flagship drama is going to be a bumpy ride.
The show's swan song, which kicks off Sept. 9 at 10/9c, picks up 10 days after the end of last season, when Jax (Charlie Hunnam) was found in his home cradling the corpse of his brutally murdered wife Tara (Maggie Siff). Although the new season begins with Jax behind bars, he's eventually freed and sets out to punish the person responsible for Tara's death.

"Jax is in a very schizophrenic state," Hunnam told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall previews Monday. "He's obviously very sad and vulnerable and broken with this huge amount of revenge and anger in his heart."
There's just one problem....
Ever since FX's new vampire drama The Strain debuted, some fans have wondered why Corey Stoll — who plays Ephraim Goodweather, an epidemiologist tasked with uncovering the truth about the mysterious vampirism virus — is forced to wear a somewhat distracting wig. The cast and executive producers Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse were on hand at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Monday to answer that mystery and provide a few other little-known facts about the series:
Cowabunga! Get ready to Simpsons-ize your life.

Sons of Anarchy will kick off its final season on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 10/9c, the network announced Thursday.
Warning: The Strain might not be for everyone.
FX's new vampire drama isn't a melancholy love story about the undead cursed to walk the earth for eternity and forced to hide their true nature. Instead, these vampires are fierce, blood-hungry killing machines with basically one goal: spread the strain of vampirism around the world.
Based on the novels from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the horror story follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control, whose team is called in to investigate a mysterious "dead" plane that lands at JFK. Every passenger, save for four, have mysteriously died from an unknown virus that will soon turn them into vampires — cogs in the ultimate war in which vampires will take over the world.

Demian Bichir, Diane Kruger
FX's border drama The Bridge has undergone a reboot of sorts in its second season.
While the show's first season followed Detectives Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) and Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) as they hunted for a serial killer in Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, Season 2 casts a much wider thematic net. Now left completely to its own devices rather than following the Scandinavian show on which it was based, The Bridge has shifted its focus to examine how political and corporate corruption on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border permeates issues like the drug trade, immigration and human trafficking. But make no mistake — it's actually more twisted (and bloody) than ever.
"It is a radically different show, and I mean that in the best sense of the word," creator Elwood Reid tells TVGuide.com. "It's trying to tell a bigger story, but the way we're trying to tell a bigger story is not to shovel a bunch of facts at you. We're telling it through characters, through things that affect people's lives."
Adds Reid: "[Police procedurals] can be empty calories. I'm going to set the table, I'm going to serve you some appetizers, and then I'm going to serve you a real rich four-course meal of weirdness, and let's see how that goes, instead of just that constant sugar rush of hunting the serial killer every week."
