Some exciting news was released today during the FX presentation at the TCAs.
FX Networks has extended its order of American Horror Story for two additional installments, adding an 8th and 9th year to the previously announced seventh installment.
“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,” said Landgraf.
“When Ryan and Brad came to us seven years ago with the idea for a horror series structured as an anthology, with a group of actors returning year after year, in different roles, settings and time periods, we were in awe of the sheer originality and ambition of their vision,” commented Fox Television Group Chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman.
So far for the upcoming seventh season, only Sarah Paulson and Even Peters have been announced as joining the cast.
Coming off two Golden Globe wins for his freshman series Atlanta, Donald Glover has signed an exclusive overall television production deal with FX Productions.
Under the overall deal, Glover will develop television series for FX Networks and other networks and streaming services, in addition to continuing to executive produce, write, direct and star in Atlanta.
Also today, FX announced that Glover’s award-winning hit comedy series Atlanta will return for a second season in 2018 due to Donald’s production schedule.
Also announced, American Crime Story will also air in 2018. The second season of the series will focus on the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, while the third season will take a look at the Versace murder.
Both season of the Emmy nominated series are both being shot simultaneously and will air within eight months of each other in 2018.
