‘American Horror Story’ Renewed For 3 More Seasons
If you were concerned that Disney taking over the Fox and FX brands might soften their content, fear not. FX Network in the US has just renewed ‘American Horror Story‘ for 3 additional seasons. That is on top of Season 10, which is due later this year.
Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk ‘American Horror Story’ is an anthology horror series, which sees each season move the twisted drama to a brand new setting. Since 2011, creators Murphy and Falchuk have redefined the horror genre. Through a creepy asylum, a coven of witches, a travelling freak show, a haunted hotel and the apocalypse itself, FX’s limited series has generated millions of shocks, scares and screams and inspired its legion of dedicated fans to guess what terrors the next chapter will hold.
Not only has the series gone down well with horror fans it has also been praised by critics. Over the course of its 9 Seasons so far it has been nominated for a staggering 429 awards, winning 94, from sacks full of Emmys and Golden Globes to Critics’ Choice Television Awards, BMI Film and TV Awards, Directors Guild of America Awards, and Horror Writers Association’s Bram Stoker Awards.
“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,” commented John Landgraf, Chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions at the TCA press event. “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 instalment of American Horror Story.”
‘American Horror Story‘ airs on Fox in the UK and FX in the US. Season 10 is due to premiere later in 2020.
