Also part of the cast were Danny Trejo, Aaron Tveit, Paris Jackson, Madison Bailey and Virginia Garndner.
According to FX, American Horror Stories marked the most successful launch of any FX on Hulu series to date. The anthology’s renewal also comes before the flagship series returns for its tenth installment Double Feature on FX Aug. 25.
