‘American Horror Story’ Renewed For Two More Seasons!
According to The Hollywood Reporter FX is extending American Horror Story, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that, it had added two more seasons of the anthology from creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. In addition to the previously announced seventh season, this will take the series through a ninth season and likely to 2019. The seventh season of AHS returns this year. However, the renewals do not necessarily mean that the interconnected franchise will conclude with season nine.
“American Horror Story launched the modern limited series revolution and — as evidenced by the most recent instalment, Roanoke — it remains as vital today as when Murder House stunned audiences six years ago,” FX CEO John Landgraf said. “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.”
American Horror Story ranks as FX’s most-watched series and has collected 15 Emmy wins during it’s run. It’s most recent season, Roanoke, was up 5 percent vs. Hotel which is impressive given that the premise and cast were shrouded in mystery and was not marketed traditionally.
We can expect Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters to return for American Horror Story Season 7 which is set to premiere sometime in 2017. Season 7 was announced three episodes into Roanoke the sixth season of the show. Murphy confirmed the return of Paulson and Evans at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour. The network promised at the press tour that the seventh season would also unfold in a unique fashion, much like the sixth season which was kept the plot, cast and season subtitle a secret until the premiere. Murphy would only drop a few breadcrumbs about upcoming season seven saying that the seven season seven will be a “modern-day story.”
CEO John Landgraf said Thursday “Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot,” FX CEO John Landgraf said Thursday. “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.”
