"American Horror Story" will get another chapter. FX announced Thursday it has renewed the drama for a third season.

The anthology series, from "Glee" sires Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck, is currently in its second installment, "American Horror Story: Asylum," which has pulled in strong numbers for the network. Wednesday's episode brought in 2.65 million viewers. When DVR numbers are factored in, the series has been averaging about 5 million viewers so far this season.

The third chapter will consist of 13 episodes and air next fall. Each season, for those unaware, features a new theme, setting and characters. Before you even start to wonder: Yes, Jessica Lange, the show's trophy magnet, is set to return again. After her chilling portrayal of meddling neighbor Constance in the first season, Lange switched gears for the second: playing Sister Jude, a nun with a troubled past.

No word on what other familiar faces will make a return.
