American Horror Stories, the first direct spinoff to American Horror Story, has been a total mixed bag critically, but its viewership must be high because FX just renewed it for a second season!
The weekly anthology series differs from the main American Horror Story series by featuring a different horror story each week, instead of one continuous storyline – although the first two episodes took us back to Murder House, the setting for AHS‘ first season.
Along with news of the renewal, we were given the announcement of two new spinoffs to join American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and American Horror Stories.
American Sports Story and American Love Story will soon be part of what Disney and FX call their “American Story” franchise. American Sports Story will focus on NFL player and convicted murderer Aaron Henandez, and American Love Story will follow the relationship between JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette.
FX chairman John Landgraf also confirmed that Ryan Murphy is helping develop the fourth season of American Crime Story, which will focus on Studio 54.
