FX Renews American Horror Story for a Fourth SeasonCan you say “no-brainer”? With “American Horror Story: Coven” kicking all sorts of ass this season, FX has renewed the series for a fourth season, and we have all the details (except for what the title will be) right here!

From the Press Release:
FX has ordered a fourth installment of “American Horror Story,” the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning miniseries franchise from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions. The network has ordered 13 episodes from Twentieth Century Fox Television.

“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” said Landgraf. “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.”

Of the first three installments of “American Horror Story,” “Coven” has far surpassed the ratings of its predecessors, “Murder House” (2011) and “Asylum” (2012). Season-to date, “AHS: Coven” is averaging 7.74 million Total Viewers, 5.46 million Adults 18-49, and 3.14 million Adults 18-34, which are increases of +77% in Total Viewers, +67% in Adults 18-49, and +60% in Adults 18-34 over “AHS: Murder House.” Coven is outpacing “AHS: Asylum” by +83% in Total Viewers, +71% in Adults 18-49, and +68% in Adults 18-34. “American Horror Story: Coven” is easily on pace to record the highest average delivery of Adults 18-34 of any program in FX history. “Coven’s” first two episodes were the highest-rated single telecasts in delivery of Adults 18-34 in FX’s history. “Coven” also ranks as the highest-rated miniseries of 2013 in delivery of Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.

Nine all-new episodes remain in “American Horror Story: Coven,” airing Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT, with the finale scheduled to air on January 29, 2014.
