American Horror Story Renewed

ahsAmerican Horror Story has been renewed for a fifth season after Freak Show’s premiere set a new ratings record in the US for it’s FX channel.

“The American Horror Story anthology has had the highest growth trajectory of any show in FX history, not to mention an unprecedented track record of success in awards recognition,” FX boss John Landgraf said in a statement.

“With Ryan Murphy and his partners, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto and Tim Minear at the helm, the show’s success is not surprising. AHS continues to deliver amazing stories, a brilliant troupe of actors led by Jessica Lange, and a visual style unlike any other on TV. With Nip/Tuck, Glee, The Normal Heart, and American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy has established himself as one of the most successful and prolific producers of this generation. We expect AHS: Freak Show and the next incarnation of AHS to further his legacy.”

Of course, season five will be missing one important element: star Jessica Lange, who has said season four will be her last with the series, but Murphy said he isn’t letting her go without a fight.

The newly ordered, 13-episode Season 5 will premiere in October 2015. AHS – Freak Show airs at 9.30pm, Mondays on Eleven.
