American Horror Story renewed for second season
Story by Jack Foley
IT HAS yet to start airing in the UK but American Horror Story, the new show from Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, has been renewed for a second season by F/X.
The show stars Friday Night Lights‘ Connie Britton and The Practice‘s Dylan McDermott and follows the fortunes of a family that moves into a haunted house where they become tortured by the spirits of the estate’s former residents.
It is designed to play as a metaphor for marriage and infidelity.
In announcing the early decision to renew, FX president and GM Jon Landgraf said: “It’s one thing to have the ambition and guts to re-invent a genre in a way that makes it captivatingly fresh for a broad audience – it’s something else entirely to have the craft to back that ambition up.
“Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have hit the trifecta with Nip/Tuck, Glee and now American Horror Story, which will be scaring FX’s viewers to death for many years to come.”
