If you can't get enough of American Horror Story...

Then you're in luck!

There's been some exciting news about fan-favorite Evan Peters.

And it seems we've got a lot to look forward to.

Now, there very few series that are capable of petrifying even the most seasoned of horror fans...

But American Horror Story has created a league of its own and a reputation for terrorizing even the most unphased viewers.

The show first aired in 2011.

The horror anthology series kicked off with its aptly named first season "Murder House," which propelled the show to global small-screen stardom.

The show continued its winning streak with 2012's "Asylum."

The second season of the hit show starred the legendary Sarah Paulson as a journalist named Lana Winters. Set in 1964, the horror spectacle takes place in the confines of an insane asylum where a notorious killer named Bloodyface is committed to. Budding journalist, Lana, attends the sanatarium to report on its bakery but is secretly hoping to get the scoop on the killer.

But things take a dark turn when Lana herself is locked away in the facility.

"Asylum" also gave us this iconic scene...
