FX announced at the TCAs that its season-long horror anthology series American Horror Story will continue through at least a tenth season. That show returns for its eighth season next month and it was already renewed through its ninth year. Apparently the network feels confident enough at this point to extend that to a tenth season. The show’s numbers were down in its seventh season, but it still remains one of the top-rated scripted series on the cable nets, and it even beats out some of the shows airing on the Big Four broadcast networks. And it is well past the threshold that the syndication market prefers for an encore run, so the show has proven quite profitable for the network. It has been exploring its own legacy and tying together prior seasons in recent years to give it a rich mythology. Plus the fact that it reboots each year gives the creative team the chance to try something new if the prior year did not register as well with viewers. The show has is eighth season debut on September 12th as it shifts to Wednesday nights. Subtitled “Apocalypse”, it will focus on the first season character Michael Langdon (played by Cody Fern) and will crossover the “Murder House” and “Coven” cycles.
