“American Horror Story” has been renewed for season 7 as confirmed by FX. But could this season be the last?
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s “American Horror Story” will return in 2017 for season 7 after the success of its previous installments.
FX Networks and Productions CEO John Landgraf confirmed the news as he lauded the two TV producers on their work for the award-winning show.
“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,” he said in a statement.
The FX boss added that “American Horror Story” has captured fans in the past six seasons through its storyline.
“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,” he said. “Each new installment is a cultural event, hotly anticipated for its theme, imagery, cast and twists. We thank the creators and their team, the cast and everyone who has continued to make AHS such an extraordinary series.”
For the past season, “American Horror Story” proved to be one of the highest-rating television series, with its season 6 premiere dubbed as the third-most-watched episode in franchise history, The Hollywood Reporter said.
The debut of the season has recorded 13 million viewers and was also the fifth-highest-rated episode in the demo.
“American Horror Story,” which is comprised of cast members Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Evan Peters, Wes Bentley and Lady Gaga, has already bagged 15 Emmy awards since its inception.
With the show’s success, are they planning to end “American Horror Story” after season 7?
For the FX head, the show’s end is not yet in the offing as they have not talked about it, E! Online said. He said that as long as Murphy and Falchuk come up with new ideas, they can “keep going.”
“It’s only the limits of [the] stories and imaginations that end the show. Only time will tell.”
“American Horror Story: Roanoke” airs on FX during Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
