BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
FX has renewed its hit psycho-sexual drama American Horror Story for a 13-episode fourth season.
“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” FX Networks CEO John Landraf said in a statement. “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.”
The critically acclaimed anthology debuted in 2011 with “Murder House,” followed in 2012 by “Asylum.” The current season, “Coven,” tells the secret history of witchcraft in America and stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Jamie Brewer, Alexander Dreymon, Josh Hamilton, Patti LuPone and Danny Huston.
The fifth episode of American Horror Story: Coven airs tonight at 10 ET/PT. The finale is scheduled for Jan. 29.
