FX Renews American Horror Story For Eighth And Ninth Seasons

FX has decided to greenlight the network’s anthology series American Horror Story for an additional 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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
