Tyrant Season 3 Premiere Date

FX Renews Tyrant for Season 3

FX’s Tyrant has been renewed for Season 3. Or as they say in Abuddin: “FX’s Tyrant has been renewed for Season 3.”

“Tyrant’s second season took the show to a new level thanks to the skill and direction of Howard, Chris and Glenn and their creative team, the exceptional cast and a story steeped in family, loyalty and intrigue,” Eric Schrier, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions said in a statement. “We look forward to the next chapter and a sensational third season of Tyrant,” to run for 10 episodes sometime in 2016.

Tyrant in its sophomore season averaged 1.2 million total weekly viewers, which swelled to 2.47 mil with DVR playback folded in.

    This is good news!

  2. wrstlgirl says:

    YAY, I’ve been wondering about this.

  3. Ray says:


    Nice dig at the dearth of Arabic in Abuddin, too.

  4. tam says:

    Yes!!! Finally!!!

  5. ClearlyDemented says:

    I do like this story and am glad to see it continue, but I do find it distracting everyone almost always speaks English, even in tiny villages.

  6. dave2442 says:

    Show was definitely better in season 2, so good to hear

  7. Bill says:

    Season 2 was the best summer tv drama. It is only right that it be renewed. And I’m happy FX did the right thing.

      I so agree that it was the show I most looked forward to this summer… I figured it would get another year based on comments by the head of FX this summer.. And for FX it had OK ratings… Glad to hear… Be interesting to hear if Barry finds out about Molly’s hookup when she thought he was dead… my guess yes…

  8. Kayte CookWatts says:

    Love the show- but uncertain if they can maintain the intensity if the best character on the show is dead.

  9. Silvia Blanco says:

    This is very good news!!!!!!!!! Really enjoyed to where they have taken this show. Perosnally don’t like Molly’s character but there is definitely perfect.

    I don’t know how, but find someway to save Jamal. Yes he’s crazy as a hoot owl, but he makes the show interesting. Somehow, he’s got to discover the machinactions of his backstabbing disloyal wife. Let’s start a campaign, “WE NEED JAMAL BACK! WE NEED JAMAL”. Please don’t kill him off, let one of the Abbuddin miraculously save him!

  11. Georgia says:

    I liked the way the show ended last season and thought that was it. Interesting that they have renewed it with the main character killed off — hmmmmm — will they save him somehow!. Well, I will be watching this summer to find out

  12. Ninamags says:

    This is fantastic news!!

    I love this show. Now that crazy Jamal is gone, will the real “Tyrant” please stand up?

    I hope the son gets a new boyfriend in season 3 as well.

  13. Evie says:

    Wow I’m so happy to hear TYRANT will be back. I hope Jamal makes a total recover i would miss him not coming back. So thanks for a wonderful show.

  14. Grace says:

    Yes!!! SO HAPPY about this! I love this show. I really hope SPOILER isn’t dead though because I think SPOILER is the most interesting character on the show.

  15. Alice says:

    This is great news!!!! Thank you FX !!! Looking forward to the next chapter of Barry and Jamal….

  16. Heathers says:

    Yes! I hope Barry and family make their way back to the U.S. His wife does look terrible. I don’t know if she ‘s had a facelift, but definitely Botox and lip injections. She can barely move her mouth.

  17. Jean says:

    It won’t be the same without Jamal, unless by some miracle he pulls through. Ashraf Barhom was perfect in the role. He’s the main reason I turned in. No Jamal, no watch.

  18. Chris Hughes says:

    love tyrant great series

  19. Diane says:

    I am happy it is coming back I enjoy the show a lot. I hope they keep father and son front and center In season 3. Barry and Sammy really helped make season 2 as good as is was. They have renewed a lot of my summer shows, now it’s just the long wait for next summer.

  20. John Davis says:

    Or as they say in Abuddin: “FX’s Tyrant has been renewed for Season 3.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. Anyway, great news! I love the show.

  21. Geo says:

    One of the most improved shows of the last season. S2 was much better than S1. I’m sure they’ll find a way for Jamal to survive; I like the idea that each season finale has put a different brother in a seemingly inescapable situation (Barry sure seemed doomed last season); now they just have to figure out how to write them back out of it again.

  22. Ellinaras78 says:

    Hopefully they can end the show on a great note.

  23. Anyone have any idea why the abandoned the flashbacks of season 1? Really enjoyed getting that insight and it was missed in season 2.

  24. Susan says:

    Is Jamal coming back??? I can’t see the series without him. Please tell me he was wearing a bullet proof vest!!!!!

  25. Maggie says:

    We in the UK have not seen S2 which is coming on 4 November 2015. So excited & is looking so good!!!! As for S1 it was fantastic I was hooked from the very start. So pleased that there will be S3 next year. Many thanks

  26. Martine wicks says:

    Yay!! Greatest show ever!!!

  27. nzkum says:

    I’m really happy that it’s been continued. I hope it gets more interesting in this next season.

  28. Danford says:
