‘American Horror Story’ Renewed For Third Season

American Horror Story returning for third installment

With just eight episodes left in its second season, American Horror Story has been renewed for a third installment, Deadline reports.

FX president and general manager John Landgraf said:

“With American Horror Story: Asylum, Ryan [Murphy] and Brad [Falchuk] have raised the bar in every way from Murder House, the first American Horror Story miniseries. 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.”

American Horror Story: Asylum wraps on January 23, and production for the currently untitled third season will begin next summer. It will premiere in the fall of 2013.

Last night’s episode of AHS topped all broadcast networks in the 10 pm time slot among adults 18-34 (2.1), women 18-34 (2.4) and men 18-34 (1.7). It also ranked third among adults 18-34 in primetime versus all broadcast programs. Modern Family came in first and the X-Factor came in second.

“I Am Anne Frank, Part 2″ answered several questions about the identity of Bloody Face, whether the aliens Kit (Evan Peters) claimed killed his wife, Alma, were real or not, and whether Dr. Arden (James Cromwell) really was a Nazi. It also featured another glimpse of Shelley, who suffered a terrible fate at the hands of Arden.

Co-creator and executive produce Ryan Murphy said each season of the series would feature different themes, settings, and character, and would not be connected to previous seasons. Several actors may, however, return in different roles. Season 1 stars Peters, Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson all returned for Asylum, and Dylan McDermott is supposed to appear in a later episode.

Frances Conroy is also scheduled to make a guest appearance.

    Thank you for posting this fantastic news, guys! I thought the first season was ok, but it didn’t grab my interest and I hadn’t really paid much attention to this season. That changed last week; I was over at the home of one of my DISH coworkers while he was watching the first few episodes of this season. I didn’t know it was a separate story. After a few episodes I was hooked; I went home that night and made sure that my DISH Hopper DVR was set to record any new episodes of American Horror Story. I know that next season be a different setting and story; I just hope it is as good as the current season.
