Nine Episodes Remain in Current Installment of American Horror Story: Coven Airing Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT

AHS: Coven Finale Scheduled for January 29

LOS ANGELES, NOVEMBER 6, 2013 - FX has ordered a fourth installment of American Horror Story, the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning miniseries franchise from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions. The network has ordered 13 episodes from Twentieth Century Fox Television.

"Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer," said Landgraf. "Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall and the entire production team and cast responsible for the American Horror Story franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better."

Of the first three installments of American Horror Story, Coven has far surpassed the ratings of its predecessors, Murder House (2011) and Asylum (2012). Season-to date, AHS: Coven is averaging 7.74 million Total Viewers, 5.46 million Adults 18-49 and 3.14 million Adults 18-34, which are increases of +77% in Total Viewers, +67% in Adults 18-49 and +60% in Adults 18-34 over AHS: Murder House. Coven is outpacing AHS: Asylum by +83% in Total Viewers, +71% in Adults 18-49, and +68% in Adults 18-34. American Horror Story: Coven is easily on pace to record the highest average delivery of Adults 18-34 of any program in FX history. Coven's first two episodes were the highest-rated single telecasts in delivery of Adults 18-34 in FX's history. Coven also ranks as the highest-rated miniseries of 2013 in delivery of Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.

Nine all-new episodes remain in American Horror Story: Coven airing Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT with the finale scheduled to air on January 29. In the fifth episode, "Burn, Witch. Burn!" - (Airs TONIGHT, 10:00 PM ET/PT) - Besieged by Marie Laveau's (Angela Bassett) army, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) unleashes a new power. Fiona (Jessica Lange) and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) clash over control of the Coven. Madame LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) is confronted by old ghosts. (Written by Jessica Sharzer; Directed by Jeremy Podeswa)

Since its inception, the American Horror Story miniseries franchise has combined for a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations. AHS: Murder House tied for the most nominations of any program in 2011 with 17, and AHS: Asylum received the most nominations of any program in 2012, also with 17.

American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

American Horror Story: Coven features an extraordinary cast including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Denis O'Hare, Jamie Brewer, Alexander Dreymon, Josh Hamilton, Patti LuPone, and Danny Huston. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, James Wong, Jennifer Salt, and Brad Buecker are Executive Producers of American Horror Story: Coven. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
