'American Horror Story' May Have Two Seasons in 2016
"American Horror Story" creator Ryan Murphy always likes to change things up with his hit horror anthology series, and according to Murphy, a pretty significant change may be in store for next year.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy discussed the possibility of releasing not just the traditional fall season of the show, but an additional season in the spring. Yes, that's right -- there could be TWO seasons of "AHS" waiting for fans in 2016.
It's not a done deal yet, though Murphy sounds pretty excited about the prospect. As he tells EW, the "AHS" writers room is already divided in two, with one of the groups already hard at work on the prospective double season plan -- which, of course, Murphy says will stand out from previous iterations of the show.
"We're doing something that we've never done before on the show where we're doing two different groups of writers rooms. Some of our writers will be bouncing around but a whole different group [is] coming in late August," Murphy explained to EW. "The next thing we're crafting up is very, very different than this. Not smaller. But just not opulent. More rogue and more dark."
And with American Horror Story: Hotel" certainly sounds quite opulent, so it makes sense that Murphy would want to course correct a bit for the next season (or seasons) of the series. So how likely is the two-season plan?
"We have to decide," Murphy told EW.
Here's hoping he lets fans know his answer sooner rather than later. In the meantime, "AHS" lovers can tide themselves over with "Hotel," which premieres on October 7 on FX.
