“American Horror Story: Coven” is a smash hit, surpassing its predecessors with millions of viewers checking in to watch the horror series. Deadline.com reports that FX will be pursuing the Ryan Murphy-created anthology series for a fourth season consisting of another 13 episodes set to debut in 2014. “AHS: Coven” is averaging 7.74 million total viewers, surpassing “Murder House” (2011) and “Asylum” (2012). Jessica Lange has been a vital ingredient in the success of the series since the first season, she will be returning for one last season before she leaves the franchise.
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.”
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.”
