American Horror Story"American Horror Story" is sticking around to keep you up at night.

FX has renewed Ryan Murphy's horror anthology series for season 7, in an unsurprising move. The premiere of "AHS: Roanoke" drew 13 million viewers across all platforms, according to the network. The series has also been an Emmys powerhouse, with 15 wins.

"Ryan, Brad [Falchuk] and their team of remarkable writers have done an amazing job of keeping American Horror Story endlessly inventive, shocking and entertaining and we are honored to move ahead with them on the seventh installment," said John Landgraf, FX's CEO.

"The sustained success through six installments only proves how intensely the series resonates with fans. 'AHS' confronts our deepest fears with unmatched suspense and style. Each new installment is a cultural event, hotly anticipated for its theme, imagery, cast and twists. We thank the creators and their team, the cast and everyone who has continued to make 'AHS' such an extraordinary series."

Of course, there are no details about season 7's potential theme. Murphy and Falchuk kept "Roanoke's" theme secret until the premiere, and have even teased that the show will take an unexpected twist in episode 6 (set to air Oct. 19).

Murphy is already even planning ahead for season 8. As he told Entertainment Weekly, the seasons are connected and "you'll see it explode in seasons seven and eight." Not only that, he's been writing a "secret season."

Keep 'em coming, Ryan.
