FX Renews ‘American Horror Story’ for Season Seven

Current Edition Opened to the Third Most-Watched Episode of Any Series in FX History

Three episodes into the current season of anthology “American Horror Story” and FX has issued a renewal to Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk for season seven. “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 FX Networks and Productions CEO John Landgraf in a statement. “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.”

The pickup comes three episodes into the sixth season of the drama, “AHS: Roanoke,” which premiered on Sept. 14 a combined linear and non-linear audience of 13 million viewers, making it the third most-watched episode of any series in FX history (behind only the debuts of “AHS: Freak Show” and “AHS: Hotel”).

  1. So underwhelmed with Season 6, I exited 15 minutes into episode 3. Looking forward to sampling “Feud” when it arrives.
