Series information and format
Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, American Horror Story is an American anthology erotic and supernatural horror television series. It is created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, and hails from 20th Century Fox Television, Ryan Murphy Productions and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. The series traditionally premieres on FX in October of every year since 2011. Season 1 of the series, called Murder House, is set in Los Angeles in 2011.

Once again set in Los Angeles, but in 2015, the fifth season of American Horror Story is titled Hotel and revolves around the lives of occupants of the eerie Hotel Cortez. Starring Lady Gaga as the vampire queen and director of the hotel, this season is full of dark and sexual topics, much like the previous ones. Housing drug addicted dead prostitutes, vampires, transgenders, revengeful former lover ghosts and insane cops, Hotel is definitely a feast for the connoisseurs of the horror genre.
Ratings and renewal prospects
AHS has been the most-watched series ever broadcast by FX. Breaking the boundaries of what`s considered normal for cable TV, it is almost addictive – the audience may be horrified and disgusted, but mesmerized nonetheless. The show has won a multitude of awards and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy 18 times, winning four of these nominations. The show has a very solid 8.2/10 IMDb rating and a respectable 73% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It has averaged between 2.5 and 4 million viewers per episodes in the five-season run, with a peak during season 3. It is no wonder that a month into the fifth season FX renewed the series for season 6, which will come out in the fall of 2016.
