American Horror Story title screen.

American Horror Story is an American anthology television series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk for the FX Network. The first season, which premiered on October 5, 2011 and concluded on December 21, 2011, revolves around the Harmons: a loving but troubled family who move into a famous "murder house" in Los Angeles, where their lives are turned upside down by the spirits of many deceased former occupants of the house. The first season was later renamed American Horror Story: Murder House. The second season, which premiered on October 17, 2012, takes place in 1964 at the Briarcliff Mental Institution and tells the horrific stories of the many patients, doctors and nuns who occupy the asylum. Although the stories and settings are different, many actors from the first season (Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Frances Conroy being the actors who have appeared in all seasons thus far) also appear as different characters in each season. On November 15, 2012, FX ordered a third season of the series,[1] which will have the title American Horror Story: Coven.[2]

As of January 23, 2013 (2013-01-23), 25 episodes of American Horror Story have aired.
