FX Renews AMERICAN HORROR STORY for 3 More Seasons; Delays Season 2 of ATLANTA to 2018


A few months ago FX renewed AMERICAN HORROR STORY for a seventh season, but now the cable channel has renewed the show for an additional two seasons — bringing the total to at least 9 seasons.

“AMERICAN HORROR STORY launched the modern limited series revolution and — as evidenced by the most recent installment, Roanoke — it remains as vital today as when Murder House stunned audiences six years ago,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. “Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot.

In addition, there’s a bit of bad news for ATLANTA fans — the new Golden Globe winning show won’t be returning for a second season until 2018. Star Donald Glover’s busy schedule means that new episodes will be airing next year.
