FX Announces 2015 Mid-Season Premiere Dates

FX is amping up the volume and striking a new chord this summer, with all-new and returning blockbuster series. Created by and starring Denis Leary (Rescue Me), the bold new comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll headlines the mid-season lineup on FX, along with the return of the season’s most anticipated riveting dramas, Tyrant and The Strain, and fan-favourite comedy, Married.

Please see below broadcast details for FX’s 2015 mid-season premiere dates.

Tyrant: Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning Tuesday, June 16
**Season 2 Premiere**
Tyrant is the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the inner workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Bassam "Barry" Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) is forced back into the treacherous familial and national politics of his youth, reluctantly assuming the role of confidante and counselor to his temperamental brother Jamal (Ashraf Barhom), Abuddin's new President. While his American wife and kids struggle to understand his reasons for staying, Barry has become a powerful force within the government, fueled by visions of bringing humanitarian freedoms to his homeland. Meanwhile, Jamal's wife Leila (Moran Atias) revels in her new role as the First Lady of Abbudin, and has grand plans to introduce her nation onto the world stage as a land rich in history and cultural treasures. Having been betrayed by the West, Jamal sets his sights on the East, developing an alliance with China that he hopes will make Abbudin a global power – only Barry continues to be a thorn in his side.

Sunday, July 12:

The Strain:Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning Sunday, July 12
**Season 2 Premiere**
The transformation has begun. It can no longer be denied – New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil – the Master (Robert Maillet) – and failed. Now, Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi's entire history... and possibly a way to kill them. Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, sending new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures after the team. They need to find a way to defeat him before the transformation has become widespread, irreparable... before they become monsters themselves.

Created by and starring Denis Leary (Rescue Me), Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is a single-camera comedy centered on Johnny Rock (Leary), a middle-aged rock ‘n roller who desperately wanted to be rich and famous, but so far, is zero for two.

Married: Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning Thursday, July 16
**Season 2 Premiere**
Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina (Judy Greer) Bowman can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance. But every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded of what drew them together in the first place – they're best friends. Plus, Russ and Lina’s friend AJ (Brett Gelman) is recently divorced and pretending he’s over his wife, and their other friend Jess (Jenny Slate) is married to a much older man who can’t keep up with her.
