American Horror Story is a horror genre television franchise created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Described as an anthology series, each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a disparate set of characters and settings, and a storyline with its own "beginning, middle, and end".[1]

The first season, subsequently re-titled American Horror Story: Murder House, takes place in the present day and follows the story of a family that moves into a home haunted by its former occupants. The second season, titled American Horror Story: Asylum, takes place in 1964 and follows the stories of the inhabitants of an institution for the criminally insane. The third season, titled American Horror Story: Coven, takes place in the 1800s and present day and follows the battle between witches and voodoo practitioners.[2]

The series is broadcast on the cable television channel FX in the United States. The first season premiered on October 5, 2011, and concluded on December 21, 2011. The second season premiered on October 17, 2012 and concluded on January 23, 2013. The third season premiered on October 9, 2013 and will conclude on January 29, 2014.[3][4][5]

As of April 2014, American Horror Story has been nominated for a total of 97 awards, winning 20. Actress Jessica Lange has won the most awards of the franchise, including the Primetime Emmy Award, the Golden Globe Award, and the Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance.[6][7][8]
