American Horror Story renewed for season 5; sets ratings record

After a record breaking debut for American Horror Story: Freak Show, FX announced that they had renewed the show for a fifth season.

This comes after Freak Show set an FX record last week as it became the most watched show in the network's 20-year history. The season four premiere even beat out the premiere of the final season of Sons of Anarchy as well as all previous American Horror Story episodes with over 13 million viewers. After just one episode, the show has an increased viewer percentage of around 53% in total season viewers in comparison to last year's season, American Horror Story: Coven.

The fifth season will have 13 episodes starting in October 2015 and will be written by Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy. There is no word yet on a theme for the fifth season, but internet chatter so far seems to be leaning towards vampires since that is one thing we haven't seen yet. The American Horror Story anthology so far is as follows; Murder House, Asylum, Coven, and Freak Show.

Any themes you would like to see next year?
