It looks like FX is staying in the business of delivering shocks and scares. As reported by Variety, the network has renewed “American Horror Story” for two more seasons. That’s in addition to the seventh season, which was announced in October. This new order of episodes will take “American Horror Story” through season 9.
CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions John Landgraf made the big announcement ahead of FX’s presentation at the winter Television Critics Association press tour. “‘American Horror Story’ launched the modern limited series revolution and — as evidenced by the most recent installment ‘Roanoke’ — it remains as vital today as when ‘Murder House’ stunned audiences six years ago,” said Landgraf. “Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot. We are thrilled that Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the entire creative team will continue to deliver the groundbreaking, celebrated ‘American Horror Story’ for years to come.”
Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman added to Landgraf’s statement, saying that the team behind “American Horror Story” has “delivered six fantastic installments which have rightfully attracted millions of viewers, critical raves and dozens of awards. Ryan and Brad are to be congratulated on this remarkable multi-year pickup and we are grateful to John Landgraf and our partners at FX for their extraordinary support.”
Debuting in 2011, “American Horror Story” is an anthology series that tells a new, season-long horror story set in a new location (and sometimes even time period) with returning actors playing different characters. Following the initial “Murder House” season, subsequent seasons have been titled “Asylum,” “Coven,” “Freak Show,” “Hotel” and “Roanoke.” Among the show’s many cast members are Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Lady Gaga and more.
