“American Horror Story” will continue on for another round of spookiness and other insanity. FX announced this afternoon that Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy’s anthology series would be getting a fourth 13-episode season on the network — unsurprising news, given the current third season of the series, “Coven,” has been the highest rated yet, with the first two episodes being the highest-rated single telecasts for adults 18-34 in FX’s history.
“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” said FX’s John Landgraf. “Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall and the entire production team and cast responsible for the American Horror Story franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”
“American Horror Story: Coven” has focused on the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America, with an impressive cast the includes Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Jamie Brewer, Alexander Dreymon, Josh Hamilton, Patti LuPone and Danny Huston. The show’s produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
