Let the annual American Horror Story premise guessing game begin!
FX has renewed Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s spine-tingling anthology series for Season 6, the cabler announced Tuesday. The as-of-yet untitled sixth edition will premiere in Fall 2016.
“With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television’s landmark series,” boasted FX CEO John Landgraf said. “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.”
Details on casting are TBD, although Murphy has already publicly invited Hotel leading lady Lady Gaga to return.
Per FX, the current Hotel-themed season is pacing ahead of the average ratings of all prior installments on a Live+3 basis. Additionally, Hotel‘s premiere stands as the second most-watched telecast in FX history, second only the debut episode of AHS: Freak Show.
