Ever since American Horror Story: 1984 wrapped up back in November, we've been casually (slash obsessively) waiting for news on the long-term future of our favorite buck-wild horror anthology series. This morning, FX announced they're renewing the show for not one, not two, but three more seasons of blood-soaked fun.
The show had already been renewed for season ten, so this renewal means that AHS will be with us through season 13 (yikes, gotta imagine that season's going to be extra cursed). This news is a particular relief since Ryan Murphy freaked us all out last year with the news that AHS's cast is only contracted through season 10.
“Ryan and Brad are the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX’s highest-rated series,” John Landgraf, Chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement. "We are grateful to them and Dana Walden and our studio partners for committing to another three years. AHS has showcased a wealth of award winning actors since day one and we appreciate the contributions of everyone, including Ryan, Brad and fellow executive producers Tim Minear, James Wong, Alexis Martin Woodall and Bradley Buecker, the writers, directors, cast and crew for each new, unforgettable installment of American Horror Story.”
Season 10—which is "about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back," per Murphy—is scheduled to air later this year.
