Will ‘American Horror Story’ Season 11 Happen? FX Renewed the Series to Last Long Past Season 10
American Horror Story fans have been captivated by the work of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk since the show began in 2011. The FX anthology series continued on and was picked up for its 10th cycle in 2018. And following the ninth season, titled 1984, fans began wondering if the next installment would be the last. So will there be an American Horror Story Season 11? Don’t fret, because the network recently renewed AHS for another three seasons, long before the season 10 premiere.
‘American Horror Story’ Seasons 11, 12, and 13 renewed ahead of the season 10 premiere
Ahead of the season 10 premiere, expected to air in the fall of 2020, The Hollywood Reporter revealed FX renewed AHS for another three seasons. This means fans are guaranteed to see American Horror Story Seasons 11, 12, and 13.
“Ryan and Brad are the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX’s highest-rated series,” FX Networks and FX Productions chairman, John Landgraf, said. “We are grateful to them and Dana Walden and our studio partners for committing to another three years.”
He continued: “AHS has showcased a wealth of award-winning actors since day one and we appreciate the contributions of everyone, including Ryan, Brad and fellow executive producers Tim Minear, James Wong, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Bradley Buecker, the writers, directors, cast, and crew for each new, unforgettable installment of American Horror Story.”
Ryan Murphy on how long ‘American Horror Story’ will last until the series end
When American Horror Story celebrated its 100th episode in October 2019, Murphy hinted the anthology series could potentially go on for a long time — and certainly past the 10th season if ratings had anything to say about it.
“The tenth is the last season that’s ordered. But John and I said around Season 5, this is something that is so beloved that maybe it could keep on going,” Murphy said, according to Variety. “Now in its ninth season, in terms of worldwide…it’s one of the most popular shows in the world. So I will continue to have an appetite to do it as long as John wants to do it.”
Murphy also added they have discussed when to wrap up the series. However, he hopes they can continue moving forward.
Then in November, Murphy confirmed American Horror Story will end on FX once the network decides they no longer want to continue. But even if that happens, it’s possible the show creator will “call up Netflix” to revive AHS.
“John Landgraf has always been incredibly honorable about American Horror Story. He would obviously like to keep it going, and I’d like to keep it going,” Murphy told Deadline. “We’re in the middle of negotiations about beyond season 10. We have had conversations about the show going 20 seasons.”
He continued: “If John for some reason said, ‘We don’t want to make this anymore’, would I call up Netflix? Yes. But he’s only ever expressed love and enthusiasm and he wants to keep it going. We’re both very proud of it. It’s FX’s most highly rated show in the history of the network … It’s one of the most awarded and lauded shows of that network. I have every good intention of it staying there and I think he does too.”
