Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s anthology horror series has been picked up by FX for a fourth season. FX CEO John Landgraf made the announcement much to the appreciation of its growing fanbase.
“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer. Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall and the entire production team and cast responsible for the American Horror Story franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”
Recently star Jessica Lange hinted that she would depart the popular series after the fourth season, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times she said; "I am coming to the end of acting. I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of American Horror Story. . . and then that is it for me. Because I think that's enough. I want to go out with a bang. . . or should I say, a scare?" Series co-creator Ryan Murphy dismissed Lange would actually leave the show and said; "Every year, she says, 'OK, that's my last one. I think it's limitless because it re-energises every year, and I would love for Jessica Lange to be part of it every year."
The current series focuses on a coven of witches and features Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Robert alongside a never better Jessica Lange who once again captivates and scintillates in equal measures.
