FX’s American Horror Story franchise produced by 20th Century Fox TV, has been very successful with 15 Emmy Awards and dominating FX’s top telecasts of all time. In adults ages of 18-34, 12 of the top 15 most watched FX telecasts ever are American Horror Story telecasts. In adults 18-49, the last five installments of American Horror Story have ranked among cable’s top 5 scripted series when they were aired.
This September AHS will be kicking off its eighth season titled Apocalypse as part of it’s two season pickup by FX. But it looks like the network is ready for a longer commitment with Ryan Murphy’s hit horror anthology drama. In an interview with Deadline, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf has confirmed that it been picked up for an additional tenth season, “Ryan asked for a 10th season of American Horror Story which we were happy to give to him.”
As previously reported, Ryan Murphy has recently moved to Netflix in a big overall deal. But despite that Landraf said that he has remained committed to his FX slate. The question is could this be the last season of American Horror Story?
“I don’t know,” Landgraf said. “A lot of that comes down to Ryan and whether he still feels inspired about it. I think the eighth cycle, which is currently in production, is awesome and crazy, and I think the fans will really like it. Part of what’s cool about American Horror Story is its anthology nature. So it comes down to whether Ryan and his collaborators, like (showrunner) Tim Minear, could come up with stories that they are excited about.”
How many more stories could the creative team for AHS have? For now we know that there are at least three, one which we’ll get to see in September. It will be interesting to see if they can keep viewers attention for another 3 seasons and beyond if they choose to keep going.
