FX’s American Horror Story has been renewed for a fourth season of 13 episodes, the network announced today.
“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” said John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions. “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 the American 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.”
The renewal comes as the third season of the drama series, titled American Horror Story: Coven, is currently airing on FX and after Coven has been averaging 7.74 million Total Viewers, 5.46 million Adults 18-49 and 3.14 million Adults 18-34. Outpacing American Horror Story: Asylum by 83% in Total Viewers, 71% in Adults 18-49, and 68% in Adults 18-34. Owing to the nature of the series, plot details for the 13 episode fourth season have not been revealed, nor have casting details beyond the fact that, as her deal stipulates, Jessica Lange will return for season 4.
