Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story has been renewed for a tenth season on FX. “He asked for a 10th season of American Horror Story which we were happy to give to him,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf told Deadline. Though we know that a tenth season will happen, no information about the content of it has been released yet.
This renewal comes before the release of the eighth season that will be a mixture of the previous seasons of the series, “Murder House” and “Coven.” It will star Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates. Variety reported that Cody Fern of Assassination of Gianni Versace will play Michael Langdon who was revealed in an earlier season to be the antichrist.
When asked by Deadline if season 10 would be the last season for the lauded series, Landgraf said “I don’t know. A lot of that comes down to Ryan and whether he still feels inspired about it. I think the eighth cycle, which is currently in production, is awesome and crazy, and I think the fans will really like it. Part of what’s cool about American Horror Story is its anthology nature. So it comes down to whether Ryan and his collaborators, like (showrunner) Tim Minear, could come up with stories that they are excited about.”
Previously renewed for season 8 and 9, this news came as no surprise as American Horror Story is one of the most critically lauded and popular shows on FX. The Hollywood Reporter reported this comes at the same time as Murphy leaving his deal with 20th Century Fox Television to join Netflix. This move seems to have had little effect on the show or other FX projects of his like Pose.
The series premiere of the eighth season, American Horror Story: Apocalypse is September 12th.
