Get ready for more twisted and creepy things to happen on FX. The network announced Thursday morning that it has ordered a third season of "American Horror Story."

The series, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk of "Glee," will return with a new story line in fall 2013. Jessica Lange, who played Constance Langdon in season one and Sister Jude in the current season, will also be back in a new role. Murphy and Falchuk have not yet announced what the upcoming miniseries, which will have 13 episodes, will be called.

"With 'American Horror Story: Asylum,' Ryan and Brad have raised the bar in every way from Murder House, the fist 'American Horror Story' miniseries," FX Networks president John Landgraf said in a statement. "And their original idea — the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast — has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting. We can’t wait to see what deviously brilliant ideas they come up with for their third miniseries."

“The 'American Horror Story'anthology is a labor of love for all of us and we could not be prouder of the work our brilliant company of actors and everyone on the production team is doing this year,” said Murphy. “To John and our friends at FX and Dana Walden and Gary Newman at 20th, we thank you for your vote of confidence -- and to our loyal audience, keep watching!"

The current season of "AHS" ends on Jan. 23. The show will resume production in the summer.
