FX’s “American Horror Story” Renewed For Season Six

While each “American Horror Story: Hotel” episode has suffered a week-to-week loss in live+same-day viewership, the FX series remains a behemoth by cable standards.

Immensely resonant with DVR users, the current “Hotel” season thus far represents the highest-rated and most-watched “Horror Story” installment on a live+3 basis.

It should come as no surprise, therefore, that FX has ordered a sixth season of the popular anthology series.

Details – such as which repertory cast members or returning or where and when the season will be set — have not yet emerged. What is definitive, however, is that “AHS” will be back for the 2016-17 television season.

“With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television’s landmark series,” said FX’s John Landgraf. “From Murder House to Hotel, AHS has pioneered a new television form as well becoming FX’s highest rated show — while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity. This is even more remarkable because Ryan and co-creator Brad Falchuk tear up the playbook every year, challenging the entire creative team to come up with something even more spectacular, frightful and entertaining. You could not ask more of an artist, their team or a series and with every new installment they deliver.”

FX has thus far aired five episodes of its ongoing “Hotel” season.
