New Bloodlines for American Horrors

The Walking Dead has been renewed for a sixth season even before the fifth premieres while a spin-off has been announced for American Horror Story just days ahead of the fourth season’s debut.

Both series return to air next Monday at 9.30: The Walking Dead on TV2 and American Horror Story: Freak Show on SoHo.

It’s not yet been disclosed how many episodes have been commissioned for S6 of The Walking Dead, which is the highest-rating series in US cable TV history.

It’s been so successful that last month AMC announced a pilot for a spin-off series that’s expected to be a prequel.

Robert Kirkman, who created the comic book on which the series is based, also is turning his exorcism comic, Outcast, into a drama for Cinemax.

Meanwhile, the American Horror Story team is launching American Crime Story.

The 10-part anthology spin-off is being launched direct to series, with the first season focusing on the OJ Simpson trial.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The project will a look at the OJ Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers, and is poised to explore the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court.

“More significantly, it will display how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”
