FX today announced they have given an unprecedented three-season renewal to their hit series, AMERICAN HORROR STORY!
FX is owned by Disney and the network has ordered installments 11, 12 and 13 of the series from 20th Century Fox Television. The deal was announced by John Landgraf, Chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions at the Winter TCA press tour.
The latest season 9, entitled, American Horror Story: 1984, just concluded its run this past November. Season 9 was heavily influenced by slasher films such as Halloween and Friday the 13th.
Each season has explored a different horror theme and setting, ranging from a haunted house, insane asylum, witches coven, traveling freak show, to a hotel with a dark and murderous history. Murphy and Falchuk have not yet divulged the theme or setting for the upcoming season ten.
FX Network chairman John Landgraf said, “Ryan and Brad are the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX’s highest-rated series,” said Landgraf. “We are grateful to them and Dana Walden and our studio partners for committing to another three years. AHS has showcased a wealth of award-winning actors since day one and we appreciate the contributions of everyone, including Ryan, Brad and fellow executive producers Tim Minear, James Wong, Alexis Martin Woodall and Bradley Buecker, the writers, directors, cast and crew for each new, unforgettable installment of American Horror Story.”
During the past nine seasons of American Horror Story, the show has been nominated for 95 Emmy Awards and has won 16.
