The quality might vary on occasion, but American Horror Story is still a major hit for FX. As such, it'll be sticking around for a while.

Variety reports the network has picked up the series for at least two more seasons, which is in addition to the upcoming seventh season that had already been ordered. So that brings the total up to nine seasons and counting. The series recently wrapped Season 6, Roanoke, and this show has been nothing if not ambitious over the years.

"American Horror Story launched the modern limited series revolution and — as evidenced by the most recent installment Roanoke — remains as vital today as when Murder House stunned audiences six years ago," FX CEO John Landgraf said. "Each new chapter is a cultural event, beloved for every new twist in imagery, style, cast and plot."

The franchise has won 15 Emmy awards since its premiere back in 2011 with Murder House, and the last season still scored around 11 million total viewers, so fans are certainly still digging it. With a few more seasons lined up, it'll be interesting to see what creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk cook up.

No word on which of the series' revolving cast of stars will be sticking around, though you'd have to think some mix of Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates , Lily Rabe, Evan Peters and Emma Roberts will be involved over the next few years.

Are you glad to hear American Horror Story will be sticking around through at least 2019?
