‘American Horror Story’ Renewed by FX for Season 7

FX has renewed “American Horror Story” for a seventh installment to air 2017.

The news is no surprise given the franchise’s status as a tentpole of FX’s schedule. The most recent incarnation of the 20th Century Fox TV anthology drama, “American Horror Story: Roanoke,” has averaged a total of 13 million viewers across linear and non-linear platforms since its Sept. 14 debut.

“AHS” creators/exec producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk ignited the current mania for recurring anthology series with the convention-busting success of the first edition in 2011.

“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 FX Productions CEO John Landgraf. “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.”

FX noted that various episodes of “AHS” installments account for 12 of FX’s top 15 highest-rated telecast of all time. The series has also collected 15 Emmy Awards over the years, including two for “AHS” regular Jessica Lange.
