FX has ordered up a lot more ‘American Horror Story’ with the show now renewed for three more seasons…
The scares aren’t going to stop at FX any time soon.
On Thursday, FX announced that ‘American Horror Story’ has been renewed through season nine, which will likely debut in 2019.
‘American Horror Story’ had already been renewed for season 7, which is expected to debut this fall on FX. Now the popular show created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk has been picked up for two more seasons.
“When Ryan and Brad came to us seven years ago with the idea for a horror series structured as an anthology, with a group of actors returning year after year, in different roles, settings and time periods, we were in awe of the sheer originality and ambition of their vision,” Fox Television Group co-chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said.
“They’ve since 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 multiyear pickup, and we are grateful to John Landgraf and our partners at FX for their extraordinary support.”
Ryan Murphy has become an FX darling in recent years not only as an executive producer on ‘American Horror Story’ but also as the creator behind ‘The People V. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story’, which cleaned up during awards season including several trophies at the recent Golden Globes.
Murphy will also produce the upcoming limited series ‘Feud’, which stars Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon, while also working on another season of ‘American Crime Story’ set to debut in 2018.
