FX has announced premiere dates for its midseason slate, including the highly anticipated second season of “Atlanta,” the final season of “The Americans,” and Danny Boyle’s J. Paul Getty drama “Trust.”
“Atlanta’s” sophomore season, which is being titled “Atlanta Robbin’ Season,” will premiere Thursday, March 1 at 10pm. “Trust” will bow on March 25 at 10pm. And the final season of “The Americans” will start on Wednesday, March 28 at 10pm.
Inspired by actual events, “Trust” delves into the trials of the Getty family, beginning in 1973 with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Harris Dickinson) by the Italian mafia. His grandfather, J. Paul Getty Sr. (Donald Sutherland), refuses to pay the ransom, leaving his mother, Gail Getty (Hilary Swank), to negotiate with the increasingly desperate kidnappers. The cast also includes Brendan Fraser, Anna Chancellor, Norbert Leo Butz, Charlotte Riley and Luca Marinelli. Simon Beaufoy created “Trust” and serves as executive producer alongside Danny Boyle (who also directed the first three episodes) and Christian Colson. The show is produced by FX Productions, Cloud Eight Films, Decibal Films and Snicket Films Limited.
