American Horror Story adds seasons eight and nine to its season seven renewal
Good news American Horror Story fans!
On the back of the announcement in October that American Horror Story had been renewed for a seventh season, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the show has been renewed through to 2019.
This means we have seasons seven, eight and nine to come over the next three years.
As to what the theme of next year's American Horror Story will be about, FX CEO John Landgraf made the following statement at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Thursday
"It actually will be shrouded in super secrecy. Ryan [Murphy] has yet another really innovative idea for how to do something fresh and different with the franchise that audiences haven’t seen before, and there’s a marketing promotional hook around that."
Landgraf also went on to discuss season eight and nine and the reason for the extended renewal...
"We know explicitly what next season is about, which is seven, but we don’t know what the 8th and 9th seasons are about. We’re extending it out of trust and goodwill but also, Ryan made a commitment that he would continue to run that show and that he would be involved as he has been in the past with… designing and building the show from the ground up. So I honestly couldn’t tell you what seasons 8 or 9 [could] be, but I can only tell you that I’ really excited about season 7 and I’m utterly confident that seasons 8 and 9 will be equally original and interesting."
It seems Ryan Murphy will be delivering plenty of shocks and scares for some time yet..
