American Horror Story has been renewed for a third series.
The show - created by Glee showrunner Ryan Murphy and featuring Zachary Quinto, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Adam Levine - will return for a new 13-episode season in 2013. "With American Horror Story: Asylum, [executive producers] Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have raised the bar in every way from Murder House. And their original idea -- the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast - has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting," FX president John Landgraf said in a statement.
Season two Asylum is up 19 per cent in viewers over Murder House.
Zachary recently revealed he was thrilled he decided to return for American Horror Story: Asylum. The star was initially hesitant about returning to the series which this year changed location and characters from a haunted Los Angeles mansion to an institution for the criminally insane in the 1960s, but is delighted Ryan talked him into it. "I was [hesitant]. But once Ryan explained to me what he wanted to do, and we talked about how all of us would play different characters, it became infinitely more appealing to me. I'm so glad I decided to double down," he explained.

School will be back in session for Community cast members this upcoming February.
The NBC series - which looked to be in trouble earlier when the network pulled the series from its original season premiere on October 19 - will return to the small screen on Thursday, February 7 at 8 p.m., its previous time slot. The show will replace the slot currently occupied by 30 Rock.

The X Factor has been renewed for a third season.
Fox has announced its talent show will run for a third series and judge Simon Cowell - who quit the UK version of the show to set up the American program - insists he is "so proud" of The X Factor and praised the show's fans for all their support.
The music mogul - who sits alongside L.A. Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the panel - said in a statement, "I couldn't be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season. I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season. I want to thank our incredible sponsors for their support and creativity, and Fox for going out of their way to do everything they can to make this show a success. Most importantly, I have to personally thank our amazing fans for the support and enthusiasm they have given to The X Factor."
Neil Patrick Harris wants How I Met Your Mother to end after the current season.
The comedy returns this month for its eighth season and Neil - who plays Barney Stinson - says he and the rest of the cast are ready for the show to reach its conclusion.
"Our contracts end at [Season] eight, so it's one of those, you know, if they wanna do nine, they're welcome to, but we have a lot of other things [going on]. Cobie has got The Avengers that just made a billion dollars, Jason makes a ton of movies, I'm anxious to move East and Josh is directing and acting in movies as well. So, we all are anxious to move forward," said Neil, who stars alongside Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan.
Neil also admits the only reason any of the cast will sign up for another series is if it will be incredibly lucrative for them to do so: "I think the only way I think a season nine or any longer would happen would be [if it were] financially right - that's the reality of it. We love the show, we love doing it - eight years is a long time and we're as happy a family as we've ever been."
Three Mad Men stars -- January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, and Vincent Kartheiser -- are in final talks to ink their two-year contracts, which secures their roles for the last two seasons of the award-winning series.
While Jones had fewer screen time in season five due to her pregnancy, Moss' character Peggy Olson was largely absent from the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce offices, leaving fans to question where her storyline will go next if Moss remains for another two seasons. Series creator Matthew Weiner shed some light on Peggy's arc (spoilers after the jump):

Seth MacFarlane "never expected" Family Guy to go on for as long as it has.
The creator of the adult animated show - which was cancelled after three seasons in 2002, only to be brought back three years later due to popular demand - is shocked the series has gone on to be a huge success, and he relies on the ratings to dictate if he should continue with it.
"I never expected it to go on for so long. I ponder the end of Family Guy on a regular basis. It's important to know when a show has overstayed its welcome before your audience does. All you can do is look at the ratings. The ratings are still great, so there are still people watching it."
Seth has just made the jump from small screen to big screen with his feature-length directorial debut Ted, in which Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis star opposite a foul-mouthed teddy bear, and he insists cinema work is easier than cartoons. The 38-year-old star - who voices the character Ted and also wrote and produced the comedy movie - told Shortlist magazine, "If anything, I found I had more control. Rather than relying on 300 people to bring something to life over the course of nine months, you're relying on 300 people to bring something to life over the course of nine minutes."
30 Rock is to end after seven series, it has been confirmed.
The NBC comedy show - which was created by Tina Fey and stars Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan - was recently recommissioned for another run of 13 episodes, but the network have now confirmed that they will be the last, confirming recent speculation about the show's future.
Despite the news, NBC are hopeful of working with Tina - who loosely based the show on her experiences working on Saturday Night Live' - on other projects.
"I know Tina, Alec and the rest will deliver some of their best work. We think the world of Tina Fey, who is a comic genius, and we hope she'll be a part of the NBC family for years to come," said NBC executive Bob Greenblatt.
30 Rock will draw to a close with a special hour-long season finale.
Ashton Kutcher is set to return for a new series of Two and a Half Men.
The 34-year-old actor has reportedly signed a new one-year deal which will see him reprise his role as lonely millionaire Walden Schmidt, with co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones also returning. Ashton will remain on $700,000 per episode, but he and his co-stars have been promised a signing on bonus, according to Deadline. It is unclear is the new season - the show's 10th - will be its last.
Earlier this year Ashton revealed he would be happy to return for a new series: "I'm having a lot of fun doing the show, working with these guys and would be interested in coming back. The deal that we structured for the show is kind of a test deal, 'Can we get the show up? Can we get it going?' The show is outperforming the numbers from before I was here, and so I think people are responding to it, and, for me having a show that people like and people want more of, that'll dictate my decision."
Khloe and Lamar is to end after two seasons. Stars Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom have reportedly decided against continuing with their spin-off reality show because the basketball player - who left the Dallas Mavericks earlier this month - wants to focus on getting his career back on track, sources told gossip website TMZ.
Lamar is currently listed as inactive by the Mavericks, but is hoping for a trade at the end of the season, so the couple are returning to Los Angeles, where the sportsman plans to concentrate on getting back to full fitness.
