Ryan Murphy Details American Horror Story Crossover Season Madness!

FX CEO Announces American Horror Story Will Continue For At Least Three More Seasons

Just when you thought it was safe to turn on FX again…American Horror Story returns for another three seasons!  Earlier in the fall, HNN announced that the long running series would return for a 7th season, but the Hollywood Reporter revealed that FX has added an additional two seasons, essentially extending the series for three more installments.

FX made the announcment at the annual Television Critics Association’s winter press tour.  FX CEO John Landgraf engaged in some typical hyperbole stating that, “American Horror Story launched the modern limited series revolution and — as evidenced by the most recent installment, Roanoke — it remains as vital today as when Murder House stunned audiences six years ago. Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot. We are thrilled that Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the entire creative team will continue to deliver the groundbreaking, celebrated American Horror Story for years to come.” read more

American Horror Story: Roanoke Mid-Season Review

American Horror Story: Roanoke reached the mid-season mark at an unlikely place in terms of the history of the franchise.  The fact that episodes one through five of season six  ended with a somewhat coherent and highly original take on the popular ghost documentaries that are found on SyFy, the Travel Channel, and Destination America (along with the requisite “dramatic re-enactment” story-within-a-story approach) was a true achievement for the series.  Unfortunately, the debut of the “real story” twist in episode six does more to detract from the high water mark established in the first half of the season than humanly possible. read more
