Good news keep on coming for American Horror Story fans! After the announcement that Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have been confirmed to return to season 7 of AHS, during the Television Critics Association’s press tour, the show’s producers announced the show has been renewed for two more seasons.
As season six, AHS: Roanoke – wrapped up over the fall, the seventh season had been long announced. And now without having season 7 on the air at least, FX announced that the show has been picked up for season 8 and 9.
This is a statement from FX CEO John Landgraf:
“‘American Horror Story’ launched the modern limited series revolution and — as evidenced by the most recent installment ‘Roanoke’ – it remains as vital today as when ‘Murder House’ stunned audiences six years ago. Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot.”
And more information from FX Television Group Chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman:
“When Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk 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. They’ve since delivered six fantastic installments which have rightfully attracted millions of viewers, critical raves and dozens of awards.”
This is a really good thing in a world where shows we love get cancelled way too much. Thank you, FX!1 of 1
