FX will be bringing American Horror Story back for a second season, announcing the renewal – appropriately enough – on Halloween. Created by Glee‘s Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the horror series has become a major draw for the network, posting its highest ratings so far with the Halloween-themed episode.
The 13 episode season two of what could possibly be the most bizarre (and also one of the most addictive) show on television will air in the fall 2012.
Commenting on the renewal, FX President Jon Landgraf said, “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.”

American Horror Story debuted on October 5, 2011 and stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, and Taissa Farmiga.
American Horror Story “chronicles the lives of Ben and Vivien Harmon (McDermott and Britton) who relocate from Boston to Los Angeles with their daughter in an attempt to put the dark memories of their past behind them. Their new residence in an old mansion hides dark secrets, as do next-door neighbor Constance (Lange), the home’s housekeeper, Moira O’Hara (Conroy), and Larry, a former resident of the estate (Denis O’Hare).”
