American Horror Story will return with more scariness, darkness and societal statements, thanks to FX renewing the hit series for a sixth season.
The network announced the groundbreaking and award-winning anthology limited series’ renewal news today.
“With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television’s landmark series,” said John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions in a press release.
“From Murder House to Hotel, AHS has pioneered a new television form as well becoming FX’s highest rated show — while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity. This is even more remarkable because Ryan and co-creator Brad Falchuk tear up the playbook every year, challenging the entire creative team to come up with something even more spectacular, frightful and entertaining. You could not ask more of an artist, their team or a series and with every new installment they deliver.”
Seeing how the the first four installments of the American Horror Story have received a combined 71 Emmy Award nominations and 13 Emmy Award wins, including five Emmy awards for its fourth installment, American Horror Story: Freak Show, we don’t think this series will be going anywhere anytime soon.
The next new episode of the series airs tomorrow at 10pm and will find Ramona (Angela Bassett) and Donovan (Matt Bomer) enacting their plan for revenge against The Countess. Meanwhile, Liz Taylor will get her own love story and fans will finally find out what the thing in room 33 is (my guess is on The Countess’ monster baby, a la Murder House).
Although we aren’t shocked that the series was renewed for another season, we’re still very excited to know for sure that the show will return in 2016!
