‘American Horror Story’ Renewed for Seasons 8 & 9 on FX
Are you a fan of FX’s American Horror Story? If so, you’ll be glad to know the series has been renewed for two more seasons. American Horror Story, which just finished up its ten-episode sixth season last November, will debut its seventh season in September, 2017. But the renewal expands beyond 2017, taking AHS into 2019 with Seasons 8 and 9.
American Horror Story was created by Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, premiering in 2011 on FX.
“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,” said Fox Television Group CEOs, Dana Walden and Gary Newman at the Television Critics Association today.
The series features a wide range of celebrities, actors, and artists such as Lady Gaga, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett. Series regulars, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Denis O’Hare have each been in at least 60 episodes since Season One.
American Horror Story has won two Golden Globe awards, one for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Lady Gaga), and the other for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television (Jessica Lange).
AHS was nominated for six other Golden Globes, and has won 15 Emmy awards. In total, American Horror Story has been nominated for 270 industry awards.
