American Horror Story Checking In spooky child

••• American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy will be racking his brain for a new location for a sixth year of the show (we suggest Lidl) because FX has announced that it has ordered another season of the scary supernatural show. “With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television’s landmark series,” says John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions. “From ‘Murder House’ to ‘Hotel,’ AHS has pioneered a new television form as well as becoming FX’s highest-rated show — while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity.” [via /Film]

x-men apocalypse••• X-Men: Apocalypse producer Simon Kinberg has confirmed that the first trailer for the film will be released with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. “It’s our first thing out there,” he says, “so it is somewhat of a teaser but it’s certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it.” [via]

••• Scriptwriter John Logan (Spectre, Skyfall, Hugo, The Avaitor) is reteaming with Ridley Scott (he also wrote Gladiator). He’ll be providing a new draft for Prometheus sequel Alien: Paradise Lost. (It’s still not clear if that’s an official title but it’s certainly what Ridley Scott is calling it.) [via]

••• Original series creator Joel Hodgson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to resurrect Mystery Science Theater 3000.

••• Netflix has just committed $50 million to director Bong Joon-ho’s follow-up to the brilliant Snowpiercer – Okja. The star-studded cast includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Nighy. Okja follows a Korean girl who befriends a kindhearted monster, the Okja of the title. [via /Film]

••• The show formerly know as Lookinglass, Fox’s new TV series about an aged cop who’s revived as a young man with supehuman powers (played by Robert Kazinsky, below), has had yet another name change. It was originally called The Frankenstein Code before becoming Lookinglass, but now that’s been changed again to the very bland Second Chance. [via Deadline]
