Story by Jack Foley

AMERICAN Horror Story has been renewed by FX for a further three seasons.

The renewal takes the Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk-produced fan-favourite drama through to its 13th season and arrives as work on season 10 gets underway for a 2020 premiere.

Announcing the news, FX chairman John Landgraf said: “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.

“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 instalment of American Horror Story.”

AHS has averaged 9.8 million total viewers per episode throughout its nine seasons so far, and when factoring in all linear and non-linear platforms (per FX).

Collectively, the network says its total audience is more than 1 billion viewers across its 103 episodes.

The show has also proved to be an awards darling, earning 95 Emmy nominations and taking home 16 wins.

A theme and premiere date for season 10 have not yet been announced.
