"American Horror Story," the new FX drama about a troubled family that moves into a house where strange things happen, got a trick-or-treat surprise for Halloween: It got renewed for a second season.

The series, which was created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck ("Glee"), has been on track to become the highest-rated first season of any FX series, said FX Networks President and General Manager John Landgraf.

The drama, which stars Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott and Jessica Lange, will "be scaring FX's viewers to death for many years to come," said Landgraf.
