On the heels of its record-breaking premiere, FX has renewed American Horror Story for a fifth season.
The fourth incarnation of the anthology series from Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk has been picked up for another round of 13 episodes, the cable network announced Monday. Season five will return in October 2015.
Casting for the fifth season has not been announced, though Murphy remains hopeful that Jessica Lange will be back — in some capacity — despite the Emmy winner's public announcement that Freak Show would be her last.
Fox is staying put in Gotham. In a move that should come as no surprise, the network's fall breakout has scored a back order for additional nine episodes — bringing its freshman season to a full 22 episodes.
“Gotham debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason," said Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman. "Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rich world, with characters that draw you in and a cast that brings to life these heroes and villains in a way we’ve never seen before. We are so excited to see where Bruno, Danny and the entire Gotham team take this story over the course of this season, and so thankful to all the fans who have embraced it this fall.”
