FX Networks just had their usual slew of renewals and announcements, so it feels in many ways like things are getting back to normal.
Chief among these is a greenlight for the proposed “American Horror Story” spinoff series titled “American Horror Stories” from creator Ryan Murphy. Think of this as a “The Twilight Zone” version of “AHS,” as “Stories” will reportedly feature a different horror story each episode.
Murphy’s actually been teasing (as usual) the possible theme for the next season of “AHS,” which has been renewed into season 13.
“It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” has been given the landmark renewal for season 15, Pamela Aldon‘s “Better Things” has been picked up for season 5, and as we reported last week, “What We Do In The Shadows” is coming back for a season 3.
President of FX Entertainment Eric Schrier said:
“We couldn’t be more excited about our roster of new and returning shows slated through next year. It has been an extraordinary time for FX over these past three months with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business. We believe the continued strength of our original series coupled with the growing awareness of FX on Hulu as our streaming platform will make the FX brand stronger and more relevant and accessible than ever before.”
