Fans of horror-themed histrionics can breathe easy, as Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s anthology series American Horror Story has been renewed by FX for a sixth season.
Currently in its fifth season, Hotel, the series has consistently – and successfully – reinvented itself every year. While we would argue that it hasn’t quite matched the creative heights of second season Asylum, it’s still a landmark series in television, and we’re happy to see that it’s carrying on.
“With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television’s landmark series,” said FX Networks CEO John Landgraf. “From Murder House to Hotel, AHS has pioneered a new television form, as well as becoming FX’s highest-rated show, while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity.”
He added, “This is even more remarkable because Ryan and co-creator Brad Falchuk tear up the playbook every year, challenging the entire creative team to come up with something even more spectacular, frightful and entertaining. You could not ask more of an artist, their team or a series and with every new installment they deliver.”
