Ryan Murphy revealed the news Thursday at TCA.
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are sticking with the American Horror Story franchise.

The two originals of the FX anthology series, which hails from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, are returning for the seventh season, set to premiere sometime in 2017.

The seventh cycle of the AHS horror franchise was announced three episodes into Roanoke, the sixth season of the drama. Roanoke featured Paulson and Peters as a married pair of actors who fell in love on set, much to the delight of viewers of the longtime franchise. While Paulson and Peters have played many roles over the course of the franchise, the two had never been linked up romantically.

Murphy confirmed the return of the stars to a small group of reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Thursday.

Following the marketing strategy of the sixth season — which kept details of the cast, plot and season subtitle a secret until its premiere — the seventh season will also unfold in a unique fashion, the network promised at the press tour.

After confirming the castings, Murphy would only say that the seventh season will be a “modern-day story.”

The two-season pickup, for seasons eight and nine, will likely take the 20th Century Fox Television drama through to 2019. The renewals do not necessarily mean that the interconnected franchise will conclude with season nine.

“Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot,” FX CEO John Landgraf said Thursday. “We are thrilled that Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the entire creative team will continue to deliver the groundbreaking, celebrated American Horror Story for years to come.”

FX has renewed “American Horror Story” for a seventh installment to air 2017.

The news is no surprise given the franchise’s status as a tentpole of FX’s schedule. The most recent incarnation of the 20th Century Fox TV anthology drama, “American Horror Story: Roanoke,” has averaged a total of 13 million viewers across linear and non-linear platforms since its Sept. 14 debut.

“AHS” creators/exec producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk ignited the current mania for recurring anthology series with the convention-busting success of the first edition in 2011.

“Ryan, Brad and their team of remarkable writers have done an amazing job of keeping ‘American Horror Story’ endlessly inventive, shocking and entertaining and we are honored to move ahead with them on the seventh installment,” said FX Networks and FX Productions CEO John Landgraf. “The sustained success through six installments only proves how intensely the series resonates with fans. ‘AHS‘ confronts our deepest fears with unmatched suspense and style. Each new installment is a cultural event, hotly anticipated for its theme, imagery, cast and twists.”

FX noted that various episodes of “AHS” installments account for 12 of FX’s top 15 highest-rated telecast of all time. The series has also collected 15 Emmy Awards over the years, including two for “AHS” regular Jessica Lange.
