I’ve been a fan of American Horror Story since the first season back in 2011. I was skeptical when the second season was announced with the same cast playing different characters in a totally different story. With the fifth season coming up – American Horror Story: Hotel – there’s no question that the gamble paid off. In fact, it’s paid off so well that the showrunners are considering the possibility of releasing not one but two seasons of the show in 2016.
“Next year we might do a fall American Horror Story and a spring,” says Ryan Murphy. “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.”
It’ll be interesting to see what two options they come up with, I know I’d watch both a spring and fall “season” of the show, although I am a bit apprehensive about the upcoming season due to the departure of arguably the star of the show, Jessica Lange. That said, the new season takes place in a hotel (obviously), and much of the returning cast is joined by the likes of Lady Gaga which should provide an interesting aspect to the show.
American Horror Story: Hotel airs Wednesday, October 7th on FX, check out a pair of new teaser clips below:
