Netflix announced today that American Horror Story is now available for streaming in the U.S. That would be the first season, of course.
"It’s Thanksgiving week, so what’s a blog post without giving thanks for certain things in your life?" writes Allie Goss, Director of Content Acquisition, on the Netflix blog. "I’m thankful for the typical: family, friends, good health, and my job (this is not because this is my employer’s blog, although I figure, it can’t hurt). I’m also thankful for the less essential, yet still appreciated things like new albums from The Killers and Mumford & Sons, seasonal gingerbread lattes, and incredible TV shows like American Horror Story, which is available today in the US!"
"We’re thrilled to bring our US subscribers FX’s hit show, American Horror Story!" she adds. "For those of you not familiar with the critically-acclaimed show, we know you’ll enjoy watching the Harmon family as they move from Boston to Los Angeles seeking relief from their messy pasts, only to find out that they have taken up residence in a house haunted by its former residents. Gripping and scary, this present-day story stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, and many others including a performance by Jessica Lange as Constance Langdon, which earned her Golden Globe, SAG, and Emmy awards!"
The show joins other FX shows on the Netflix line-up, like The League, Sons Of Anarchy and Rescue Me.
The second season of American Horror Story is currently underway on FX. I would assume that that season will come to Netflix in about a year (maybe ahead of the start of the third season, if we're lucky).
Goss also reminds us that Netflix original series House Of Cards will soon be available. It's coming on February 1. Watch the trailer here.
