American Horror Story is currently airing season five on FX. Lady Gaga has given some new life to the horror series that had four seasons with Jessica Lange on top. Ryan Murphy has already asked Gaga to return for season six, but he has more in mind for American Horror Story.
With the show’s popularity, Murphy might be willing to go The Voice route with future seasons. Fans may see a fall edition and a spring edition of the franchise. Murphy is looking at the popularity of the series, and he wants to feed fan demand.
Entertainment Weekly shared his comments.
“Next year we might do a fall American Horror Story and a spring. We have to decide. We’re doing something that we’ve never done before on the show where we’re doing two different groups of writers rooms. Some of our writers will be bouncing around but a whole different group coming in late August. The next thing we’re crafting up is very, very different than this. Not smaller. But just not opulent. More rogue and more dark.”
There is one immediate concern that comes to this writer’s mind – the cast’s availability. Would many of the cast members be willing to commit to both editions each year? That would make the series a season long commitment. Gaga still has music, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett come from the world of film, and this would lock up them and many others to a full time commitment.
Does Ryan Murphy have a plan in mind for that problem? Would you want to see two seasons of American Horror Story each year? Tell us what you think.
I’m a big fan of AHS so there can never be to many seasons for me. I look forward to this show every year. Two seasons a year is a terrific idea! Can’t wait!
About the issue of the “American Horror Story” castmembers’ availability, with the consideration of “American Horror Story” getting two 12-or-13 episode seasons for next year (or probably every year after that), besides the two-writers-rooms-for-each-edition idea, I’m thinking that “AHS” would need two groups of actors as well, one group for the fall edition, and one group for the spring edition. If this two-editions plan becomes a reality, couldn’t they have had Ms. Gaga, Ms. Bates, and Ms. Bassett appear in just one of either of the “AHS” editions rather than both, so they would have enough time for their other… Read more »
Big fan! Extremely disappointed about Mz.Jessica not being in this one, I had already been skeptical of Gaga’s acting ability however so far this season she has done a decent job, would really like to see Jessica back though. One of the major differences that was a huge turn on about the show is that the cast was basically the same. If splitting the writers and the seasons in half means we don’t get the same cast and we only get half as many episodes than HELL NO! BUT if there will be the same amount of episodes as a… Read more »

this show is sick. cancel.
I heard they were thinking this recently and I’m completely on board! It’s always fresh and exciting so a 2nd installment a year will just be perfect!
Hell Yeah! I would love 2 seasons in a year with AHS!!!!! Gaga has a great story line going right now and could do very well! I think she has better acting ability than I itially thought she could do.
