American Horror Story gets three more seasons and an old star

American Horror Story has been renewed for three more seasons, and is bringing back a fan favourite

There’s been a couple of news nuggets making the rounds for Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story this week.

The first is that that network FX has officially renewed the series for three more seasons, according to THR. Season 10 is expected to premiere latest this year, with Seasons 11, 12 and 13 following.

FX 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. 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.”

There was a while when viewers weren’t sure whether or not the long-running series would be renewed following Murphy’s departure from 20th Century Fox TV when he moved his overall deal to Netflix.

The second piece of news is that fans can expect the brilliant Sarah Paulson to return for Season 10, as reported by TheWrap.

The actress, who is also known for her work in Carol and Glass, first appeared in American Horror Story: Murder House (the show’s first season) as Billie Dean Howard. She starred in the following seven seasons, but was notably absent from the latest instalment, American Horror Story: 1984, so it’ll be good to have her back.
