LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Cable network FX says it has ordered a second season of its ghostly drama series "American Horror Story."

TVGuide.com said Monday the second run of episodes will consist of 13 episodes.

"It's one thing to have the ambition and guts to reinvent a genre in a way that makes it captivatingly fresh for a broad audience -- it's something else entirely to have the craft to back that ambition up," FX President John Landgraf said. "Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have hit the trifecta with 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Glee' and now 'American Horror Story,' which will be scaring FX's viewers to death for many years to come."

In the show, Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton play a couple who unwittingly move to a haunted house in Los Angeles with their teenage daughter Violet, played Taissa Farmiga.
