AHS gave FX their highest rated series premiere ever. It deserves this!
FX president John Landgraf has just made the NOT surprising announcement that the network is giving American Horror Story a second season!
"It’s one thing to have the ambition and guts to reinvent a genre in a way that makes it captivatingly fresh for a broad audience — it’s something else entirely to have the craft to back that ambition up."
"Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have hit the trifecta with Nip/Tuck, Glee and now American Horror Story, which will be scaring FX’s viewers to death for many years to come."
Congratulations, Ryan and Brad! The show is a hit and you absolutely deserve the second season that you've been given!
