FX Renews American Horror Story for Season 2

by at . Comments

FX has picked up American Horror Story for a second season. The move comes as no surprise considering - obvious, terrible pun alert! - the show has been scaring up huge ratings for the network.

Said FX President John Landgraf in a statement announcing the move:

"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.”

The drama - which, according to the network, is “tracking to become the highest-rated first season of any series ever on FX, certain to surpass Murphy’s award-winning hit drama Nip/Tuck in Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.” - will air 13 more episodes in 2012.
