FX has renewed “American Horror Story’ for a third season. Many actors including Jessica Lange are said to return for the forthcoming season.
The horror anthology series will return for a 13-episode season next fall, John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks announced Thursday. Production of the untitled “AHS” is slated to begin begin next summer.
“With “American Horror Story: Asylum,” Ryan and Brad have raised the bar in every way from Murder House, the first “American Horror Story” miniseries,” said Landgraf. “And their original idea—the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast—has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting. We can’t wait to see what deviously brilliant ideas they come up with for their third miniseries.”
“The “American Horror Story” anthology is a labor of love for all of us and we could not be prouder of the work our brilliant company of actors and everyone on the production team is doing this year,” said Ryan Murphy. “To John and our friends at FX and Dana Walden and Gary Newman at 20th, we thank you for your vote of confidence — and to our loyal audience, keep watching!”
“American Horror Story: Asylum” airs Wednesdays on FX at 10/9c.
