American Horror Story will be returning for Season 5 after the fourth season premiere broke records for FX.

Variety confirmed that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s show has been picked up by FX for another season after the first episode of Freak Show smashed previous record holders, including AHS‘ third season Coven and the biker gang drama Sons Of Anarchy.

This isn’t a huge surprise but the question remains: Will Jessica Lange return? Murphy recently spoke about how he hopes to convince her to return in some capacity, even if it’s not as the star.

American Horror Story: Freak Show begins on 21 October on Fox in the UK. Keep up with the latest genre TV news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
