FX has ordered a fourth installment of American Horror Story, the Award winning miniseries franchise from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, according to John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks. Of the first three installments of American Horror Story, Coven has far surpassed the ratings of its predecessors, Murder House (2011) and Asylum (2012).
The network has ordered 13 episodes from Twentieth Century Fox Television and this is what Landgraf had to say about it, “Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer, time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall and the entire production team and cast responsible for theAmerican Horror Story franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”
Since its inception, the American Horror Story miniseries franchise has combined for a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations. AHS: Murder House tied for the most nominations of any program in 2011 with 17, and AHS: Asylum received the most nominations of any program in 2012, also with 17. American Horror Story: Coven is fantastic so far, so I can’t wait to see what Murphy and Falchuk think up next.
