At FX’s portion of the winter TCA press tour, FX CEO John Landgraf fielded a question about the upcoming sixth season of American Horror Story. “It’s set in two time periods — in the present with echoes of the past — but principally in the present,” he said.
Landgraf also confirmed that the second installment of American Crime Story, which has not been formally greenlighted but is well underway, with co-creator/executive producer Ryan Murphy assembling a writers room, will be about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Murphy is expected to provide further details during the ACS: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson later today.
Additionally, Landgraf confirmed that Season 3 of Fargo will take place in 2010, “not quite contemporary but most recent in any Fargo installments, including the movie.”
As for a potential Sons of Anarchy followup series, Landgraf said that creator Kurt Sutter, while taking a break after the end of Bastard Executioner, “has been writing and working on an idea for a show, and he’s also re-expressed interest in another show in the Sons of Anarcy franchise.” He would not provide specifics on the ideas but noted that “they’ll be coming soon.”
Sutter last fall shared with Deadline his intent to make a Vietnam-era SOA limited series prequel, and a separate Latino-oriented spinoff.
