American Horror Story
renewed through season 13
Great news for the Ryan Murphy
coven — American Horror Story
has officially been renewed three more times, securing the shelf life of FX’s hit anthology series until at least season 13.
The show, which finished its ’80s-slasher-themed ninth run
with American Horror Story: 1984
in 2019, was previously greenlit for season 10, set to premiere this year. The reveal of its newly prolonged life, as if by some seven wonders, was formally revealed during the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday.
FX Networks Chairman John Landgraf called AHS
creators Murphy and Brad Falchuk “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.”
He continued, “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 installment of American Horror Story
Previous seasons have taken us inside a haunted house, an insane asylum, a witch’s coven, a cult, a reality show in literal development Hell, and the end times. The theme for this year’s season 10 has yet to be unmasked, though we know from Murphy himself that the witches from season 3’s Coven will return
at least one more time in the future after their reprised appearance in season 8’s Apocalypse
brought back a number of AHS
veterans, including Billie Lourde, Emma Roberts, Leslie Grossman, Finn Wittrock, and Cody Fern, as well as some new anthology players like Pose
‘s Angelica Ross and Olympian Gus Kenworthy. Sarah Paulson, the ultimate AHS
veteran, sat this one out. Hopefully not for too long.
