“American Horror Story; Hotel,” the fifth installment of the award-winning series has been garnering ratings as successful as its previous seasons.
The popular FX show has been renewed for its sixth season and will be debuting in 2016, according to Variety.
“With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television's landmark series," John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement, according to E! News.
“From Murder House to Hotel, AHS has pioneered a new television form as well becoming FX's highest rated show—while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity. This is even more remarkable because Ryan [Murphy] and co-creator Brad Falchuk tear up the playbook every year, challenging the entire creative team to come up with something even more spectacular, frightful and entertaining. You could not ask more of an artist, their team or a series and with every new installment they deliver."
The show, which was created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Flachuk, is reportedly the most-watched show in FX’s history. The premiere of this season was reportedly the second most-watched telecast in FX history, following behind the premiere of “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”
The fifth season of “American Horror Story” features a star-studded list of guests, including Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates and Chloë Sevigny. Murphy reportedly revealed that he invited Lady Gaga back for the sixth season.
It’s not clear whether other cast members will be returning for the sixth season.
