The creators of the much-loved TV anthology series American Horror Story have now confirmed the show will run for at least three more seasons.
With AHS starting in 2011 and season ten expected to air later this year, everyone has been wondering if this might be its last season.
But yesterday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the show's fate was secured with three more seasons announced. Yesss!
The creepy Emmy-winning drama plays upon supernatural fears and horrors, as well as our capacity for evil and so far we've seen each season cover varying topics.
From a creepy haunted house to a witch's coven and the last season about an insane asylum and a murderer on the loose at a summer camp - it's enough to get your spine tingling for more.
While we don't know what the new seasons will cover, (we don't even know the topic of season ten yet,) we do know that the witches from season three's Coven are likely to return again, after they popped back up in season eight's Apocalypse.
It is not unusual to see the season's interwoven in AHS, with folklore from each occasionally reoccurring.
Speaking about the decision to renew, John Landgraf, FX Networks and Productions chairman, said at the TCA: "Ryan [Murphy] and Brad [Falchuk] are the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX's highest-rated series."
"We are grateful to them and Dana Walden and our studio partners for committing to another three years."
The announcement comes just shortly after the death of Amercian Horror Story actor Harry Hains, aged 27 who passed away on Tuesday.
His mum, Jane Badler took to Instagram to announce the sad news: "On Jan 7 my beautiful son died . He was 27 and had the world at his feet . But sadly he struggled with mental illness and addiction . A brilliant spark shone bright too short a time .. I will miss you Harry every day of my life...".
The actor starred in the fifth season of AHS.
Returning to the show however for at least season ten (after not appearing in season nine) is Sarah Paulson, something she recently confirmed to Deadline. We have no news on whether she will continue through season 1-13 though - it partially might depend if she manages to survive!
We are yet to hear if Emma Roberts, who was the main character in the most recent season, 1984, will return.
If you want to catch the show, series one to eight are available to watch on Netflix, whilst series nine was picked up by Fox and aired in September last year, but is now available to stream through NOW TV and Sky Go.
