FX CEO John Landgraf says in a statement:

“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer. Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk… and the entire production team and cast responsible for the ‘American Horror Story’ franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary.”

 “Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. ‘AHS: Coven’ is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”


The season finale of “AHS: Coven” is set to air on Jan. 29

Eonline.com reports that Murphy has discussed with Landgraf a potential spin-off based on “Coven”. The series creator said:

“[Coven] is my favorite season that we’ve done so far,”  “Every season, I get very sad when I say goodbye to and we tear down those sets. But John Landgraf, to be quite clear, and I have always spoke about that this is a show that’s sort of right to spin things off. To do something different. So we are talking about it. Because I mean, I love it. I love this season, I love the cast, and I love what it’s about. I love that set more than life itself.”
