“American Horror Story” has been renewed for a seventh season. Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions announced today that the next installment in the anthology series is set to debut next year.
“Ryan, Brad and their team of remarkable writers have done an amazing job of keeping ‘American Horror Story’ endlessly inventive, shocking and entertaining and we are honored to move ahead with them on the seventh installment,” said Landgraf. “The sustained success through six installments only proves how intensely the series resonates with fans. ‘AHS’ confronts our deepest fears with unmatched suspense and style. Each new installment is a cultural event, hotly anticipated for its theme, imagery, cast and twists. We thank the creators and their team, the cast and everyone who has continued to make ‘AHS’ such an extraordinary series.”
Season 6, “Roanoke,” premiered last month and became FX’s third most-watched telecast in the network’s history. The sixth season of the Emmy Award-winning series stars Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Even Peters among others, with Lady Gaga as a special guest.
The franchise has won 15 Emmy Awards to date and has been praised by critics and viewers for its ever-evolving storylines.
Among Murphy’s other current projects are Fox’s “Scream Queens,” “American Crime Story” and the upcoming series “Feud.”
“American Horror Story: Roanoke” airs Wednesday nights on FX.
