Wait, What? We Might Get Two Seasons of American Horror Story Next Year

​Next year might double trouble for American Horror Story fans!

Next year might double trouble for American Horror Story fans!

Ryan Murphy teased to Entertainment Weekly that he might do the unthinkable: Two whole seasons of American Horror Story in 2016.

(We say "unthinkable" because he and his writing team are one of the busiest in Hollywood. In addition to AHS on FX, they're full steam ahead on Scream Queens for Fox. Oh, and American Crime Story. And Murphy has a husband and two kids.)

"Next year we might do a fall American Horror Story and a spring," Murphy told EW. "We have to decide."

The way he's thinking of doing it is actually very smart: Bring in another team of writers.

"We're doing something that we've never done before on the show where we're doing two different groups of writers rooms," Murphy explained. "Some of our writers will be bouncing around but a whole different group coming in late August."

He said they're working on something that will shake things up on the series.

"The next thing we're crafting up is very, very different than this. Not smaller. But just not opulent. More rogue and more dark," he teased.

So far, we've been treated to a mansion, an asylum, a witches' coven, a circus, and next, a hotel. What scary locations should the cast venture to next? A haunted farm? A abandoned amusement park? A spooky aquarium? As long as Murphy is willing to work on it, the possibilities are endless.
