'American Horror Story' Won't End Anytime Soon, Ryan Murphy Says On 'The Writers' Room'

There's no end in sight for "American Horror Story."

Co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed on "The Writers' Room" that he plans to keep making "American Horror Story," the FX anthology series starring Jessica Lange, as long as the network will let him.

"I don't see an end to it," Murphy says in the exclusive video above from "The Writers' Room." "I love it. I love the whole process of it. I feel like it has a great renewal to it. I love the dream time of it, you know when you're ready to sort of come up with a new one ... I really feel like, for me, it's something that I would love to keep doing as long as they let me."

The dream time almost resulted in a story about Charles Manson. “I want to do an entire season about the [Charles] Manson case,” Murphy told Deadline. "But then we decided that wasn’t respectful to the victims, and it’s really hard to get life rights. So I went to the other idea, which was New Orleans witches that I’ve always been obsessed with. We might go back to the Manson thing in some regard one day. We spend a lot of time specifically trying to get the look and the tone of it right. Every year has a different tone."

“The Writers’ Room" Season 1 finale airs Monday, Sept. 2 at 10 p.m. ET on Sundance Channel. "American Horror Story: Coven" premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
