"Tyrant" will return to FX for a third season, the network announced Thursday.
The series, from Emmy Award-winning producer Howard Gordon ("24," "Homeland"), follows an American family drawn into the inner workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Cast members include Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan and Ashraf Barhom.
FX said it will air the 10-episode third season in 2016.
The "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, co-president of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement. "We look forward to the next chapter and a sensational third season."
