While FX and Hulu technically are considered different entities under the Disney umbrella of entertainment brands, FX’s lack of stand-alone streaming service means audiences tend to mentally mix the two together. Disney’s own choice to pair them at the Television Critics Association winter press tour probably doesn’t help either, as it meant the news about both dropped at once. However, while Hulu does have some British shows of its own (like Extraordinary), the bulk of new U.K.-based show premieres concerned FX, including a new season of Welcome to Wrexham and The Veil.

Extraordinary Season 2 will debut on March 6, 2024, with all eight episodes, an announcement that came out before the TCA panels. Hulu also confirmed We Were The Lucky Ones, an eight-episode globe-trotting World War II period piece based on Georgia Hunter’s New York Times bestselling novel starring American actors Joey King and Logan Lerman, and British actors Henry-Lloyd Hughes, Amit Rahav, and Sam Woolf, was confirmed for March 28, 2024, with a three-episode debut followed by one a week.

However, the more significant announcements were from FX, with the surprise announcement that Welcome to Wrexham would debut Season 3 on April 18, 2024. The new season didn’t include how many episodes it would be, only that it would debut with a single episode and run one a week. The new season boasts that “with the team taking their place in the EFL, Welcome to Wrexham’s cameras will have unprecedented access on the pitch, bringing viewers inside the locker room and alongside the players, while the action is unfolding in some of the biggest matches Wrexham AFC has ever played.”

Meanwhile, FX’s other major British title debuting for Spring 2024 is the Steven Knight six-part miniseries The Veil, the first image of which was also released along with the premiere date of April 30, 2024. Like We Were The Lucky Ones, this is another globetrotting series with an international cast, though contemporary-set rather than a period piece, and written and produced by a U.K. team rather than an American one. Here’s the synopsis:

FX’s The Veil explores the surprising and fraught relationship between two women who play a deadly game of truth and lies on the road from Istanbul to Paris and London. One woman has a secret, the other a mission to reveal it before thousands of lives are lost. In the shadows, mission controllers at the CIA and French DGSE must put differences aside and work together to avert potential disaster.

The Veil stars American actors Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Lebanese actor Yumna Marwan (Little Birds), and French Dali Benssalah (No Time To Die). The series will be executive produced by Knight and Moss alongside Di Novi Pictures’ Denise Di Novi.

So to recap:

  • Extraordinary Season 2 debuts on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, on Hulu with all episodes.
  • We Were the Lucky Ones debuts with three episodes on Thursday, March 28, 2024, on Hulu with three episodes, one a week to follow.
  • Welcome to Wrexham Season 3 debuts on FX on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at 10 p.m. ET, streams the next day on Hulu, and airs/streams weekly.
  • The Veil debuts on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, exclusively on Hulu under the FX banner with two episodes, one a week to follow.
