FX Reveals Premiere Dates for 'American Horror Stories,' 'The Bear,' 'Little Demon,' 'The Patient,' 'Reservation Dogs' and 'What We Do In the Shadows'

FX has today announced premiere dates for its summer lineup of programming - including the returns of American Horror Stories, Reservation Dogs and What We Do In the Shadows as well as the series debuts of The Bear, Little Demon and The Patient.

All 8 episodes of the first season for the comedy The Bear will be available on Thursday, June 23 exclusively on Hulu.

The comedy follows Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto, a young chef from the fine dining world, who comes home to Chicago to run his family sandwich shop - The Original Beef of Chicagoland - after a heartbreaking death in his family. A world away from what he's used to, Carmy must balance the soul-crushing realities of small business ownership, his strong-willed and recalcitrant kitchen staff and his strained familial relationships, all while grappling with the impact of his brother's suicide. The series is about food, family, the insanity of the grind, the beauty of Sense of Urgency and the steep slippery downsides. As Carmy fights to transform both The Original Beef of Chicagoland and himself, he works alongside a rough-around-the-edges kitchen crew that ultimately reveal themselves as his chosen family.

The comedy stars Jeremy Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce and Liza Colón-Zayas, with Edwin Lee Gibson and Matty Matheson recurring.

Christopher Storer created the comedy. He executive produces with Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai, Nate Matteson and Josh Senior. FX Productions and Super Frog produce.

The fourth season of comedy What We Do In the Shadows will launch on Tuesday, July 12 at 10/9c. with back-to-back episodes on FX. Episodes will be available to stream on Hulu the next day.

In the shocking Season 3 finale, Nandor, Guillermo and Nadja left Staten Island to go their separate ways while Laszlo stayed home to care for the creature that clawed its way out of the chest cavity of the deceased Colin Robinson - aka Baby Colin. This season, the vampires return to Staten Island to find their mansion on the verge of total structural collapse - and with no money to repair it. While Nandor's eternal search for love finally yields results, Nadja finally realizes her dream of opening the hottest vampire nightclub in the Tri-State Area. Laszlo struggles with the question of nature versus nurture as he tries raising Baby Colin to be anything other than an energy vampire. And even Guillermo finds himself on a powerful emotional track that touches on his love for his family, and for others.

With such terrifying locations as the secret supernatural Night Market, the Jersey Pine Barrens and a wedding altar, and with more strange beasts, surprising guest stars and tap dancing than ever, Season 4 continues to make the case for blood and comedy. And this time with just a touch of home renovation.

Abandoned by his closest friend, Bear seeks a male parental figure to teach him how to "be a man" - but his choice of uncles to emulate leaves a lot to be desired. Meanwhile, Willie Jack thinks everything in their town is falling apart because of the curse she cast on Jackie and she's determined to put that genie back in the bottle.
