FX Renews 'American Horror Story' for Season 10

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, FX renewed its original anthology series American Horror Story for a tenth season. The renewal means the show will remain on the air through 2020.

The season-long anthology series is currently in production on its eight season, which features a crossover from previous incarnations Murder House and Coven. The network previously gave the show a three-season renewal in January 2017 - covering Seasons 7, 8 and 9. The eighth season debuts on September 12.

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk created the series. They executive produce with Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, James Wong, Jennifer Salt, Bradley Buecker and Alexis Martin Woodall. 20th Century Fox Television, Ryan Murphy Productions and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision produce.

The renewal comes as Murphy decided to exit his longtime home at 20th Century Fox Television for a new overall deal at Netflix - which is valued at $300 million. He will still work on new seasons of the series picked up for FX. In addition to American Horror Story, that includes American Crime Story, Feud and Pose. However, John Landgraf, the CEO of FX Networks, said today during his executive session at the press tour that the planned second season of Feud focusing on Prince Charles and Princess Diana has been scrapped. Moreover, scripts for the third season of American Crime Story centering on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina are still being written with no time table for production.
