‘American Horror Story’ Renewed for 3 More Seasons

At Thursday’s Television Critics Association winter press tour, FX revealed that American Horror Story has been renewed through season 13. Though the network’s hit horror anthology series had already been renewed for a historic tenth season, the future beyond that was previously up in the air.

There was some talk of the show being offered to Netflix once its ten season contract ended, but it seems that American Horror Story has a comfortable home at FX. Co-creator Ryan Murphy has already teased reuniting fan favorite actors for the show’s tenth season, but right now—in typical AHS fashion—we don’t know anything about what that season will look like. And we probably won’t know anything for a while, though fans have already started theorizing about its theme and setting.

Thirteen seasons for any show is certainly historic. For a horror series like this, which tries to reinvent itself every season—with mixed results—it’s unheard of. Whatever your feelings might be, the show has launched careers, featured talented ensemble casts, and provided us with years of memorable, if wacky and gruesome, plots. Fans will be eager to see what American Horror Story has in store for the next four seasons.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, FX Networks Chairman John Landgraf praised creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, calling them “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.”

That definitely bodes well for the series’ longevity. What do you think, AHS fans? Excited about the renewal news? Or are you burnt out on American Horror Story? Share your thoughts in the comments!
