FX greenlights Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story' for season 10
'AHS' is one of the most successful and popular show on TV right now and we are definitely not surprised by FX's decision
‘American Horror Story,’ one of the scariest and creepiest shows to be masterminded by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk has been greenlit for season 10. The news was confirmed by FX Networks CEO John Landgraf, who told Deadline, “He asked for a 10th season of American Horror Story which we were happy to give to him.” The “he” of course refers to Murphy and why? Because, eight seasons in, it is still one of the most popular shows on TV right now. Murphy recently signed a pretty hefty deal with Netflix, ensuring a multiple movie/TV show deal with the streaming giant that would last for about five years. It has been described as “the deal of a lifetime for an artist of a lifetime.”
However, Landgraf assured fans that Murphy was still committed to his shows on FX. He further speculated about whether the horror series would end with the recently renewed season 10.
”I don’t know,” he said. “A lot of that comes down to Ryan and whether he still feels inspired about it. I think the eighth cycle, which is currently in production, is awesome and crazy, and I think the fans will really like it. Part of what’s cool about American Horror Story is its anthology nature. So, it comes down to whether Ryan and his collaborators, like (showrunner) Tim Minear, could come up with stories that they are excited about.”

Prior to this, the show had gotten a two-season pickup for Seasons 8 and 9, the first of which titled ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse,’ will premiere on September 12.
Murphy has revealed that season 8 will take place18 months into the future of the show’s actual existence – meaning October 2019 – and that it will emulate the tone of Asylum and Coven. The title ‘Apocalypse’ was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 19.
It will see the return of 'AHS' veterans Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Denis O'Hare and Adina Porter. Dylan McDermott would also make a comeback on the season, after his leading stint in season 1 and a minuscule yet unforgettable cameo in season 2.
There is little to no information available on season 9, the title of which is yet to be determined. What we do know is that it will premiere in 2019.
