"With the sixth instalment coming next year, 'American Horror Story' has unquestionably joined the ranks of television's landmark series. From 'Murder House' to 'Hotel', AHS has pioneered a new television form as well as becoming FX's highest rated show -- while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity," John Landgraf, chief executive officer, FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement.

"This is even more remarkable because Ryan Murphy and co-creator Brad Falchuk tear up the playbook every year, challenging the entire creative team to come up with something even more spectacular, frightful and entertaining. You could not ask more of an artist, their team or a series and with every new instalment they deliver," he added.

The ongoing fifth season of 'American Horror Story', titled 'American Horror Story: Hotel', features an all-star cast of Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O'Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, the show has won several awards including the coveted Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards.

Besides co-creators Murphy and Falchuck, Tim Minear, Brad Buecker, Jennifer Salt, James Wong and Alexis Martin Woodall also serve as executive producers.
