FX isn’t playing around when it comes to ‘American Horror Story,’ and while Ryan Murph’s new projects are all tied to Netflix, it isn’t stopping the creator to continue work on his current work. With Season 8 having only recently entered production of the series it is almost a surprise to hear that it has already been renewed through the tenth season.
Of course, the show has always done well with ratings and that doesn’t seem to be likely to change with American Horror Story: Apocalypse‘ bringing back characters from both the “Murder House” and “Coven” story arcs in this upcoming crossover season.
The news came from FX CEO John Landgraf who doesn’t want one of their highest watched shows going anywhere in the near future. The last order for the show had a Season 8 and nine pickups tied together, and this new one will extend the hit horror anthology series through 2020.
We know that FX had already renewed Murphy’s other live-action series ‘Pose’ for a second season with no word on ‘American Crime Story’ continuing at this time. Still, fans of ‘American Horror Story’ can rest easy knowing that Murphy will continue to work on the show through at least 2020 and perhaps beyond if it gets picked up again.
I do have to say that I’d love for whatever ends up being the final season of ‘American Horror Story’ to find a way to fully tie together every one of the story arcs to date. We’ve already seen hints of ways that they exist in the same world including crossover characters but to fully integrate them into a single cohesive story would be fun to see play out.
Are you surprised that FX picked up ‘American Horror Story’ for another season? How long do you think FX will continue to do this as Ryan Murphy delved further into producing shows for Netflix? Will we get another crossover season in either seasons 9 or 10? Share your thoughts below!
