FX Renews American Horror Story For Eighth And Ninth Seasons
The announcement, which was reported by Comingsoon.net, came from none other than the network’s CEO John Landgraf. Describing the effect the show had on limited series’ as a “revolution”, Landgraf praised the show as “vital” and voiced approval of producers Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy to continue working with FX on the program. The show’s last season, entitled Roanoke, ranked as #1 for Limited/Mini-series in cable among both Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34, while the series itself has garnered no less than 15 Emmy Awards during its now-six year run.
The renewal is even more noteworthy as the show’s seventh season has yet to air, demonstrating how confident FX is in the program’s ability to continue performing well for the foreseeable future. No plot details have been offered for either newly-announced season.
Also commenting on the network’s decision were Fox Television Group CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman, who offered the following statement about the series:
“When Ryan and Brad came to us seven years ago with the idea for a horror series structured as an anthology, with a group of actors returning year after year, in different roles, settings and time periods, we were in awe of the sheer originality and ambition of their vision,” commented Fox Television Group Chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman.
