Ryan Murphy is known for repeatedly working with certain actors across his many different series. This trait is never more evident than it is on “American Horror Story,” where co-creator Murphy not only features actors he’s worked with on other programs, he writes new parts for them in season after season of the celebrated anthology series as well.
Curious about which actors have appeared on the most seasons of “American Horror Story,” we decided to compile a list. As it turns out, there are so many recurring actors on this sinister show, we had to leave out everyone without at least five seasons to their name. This means some of the actors most closely associated with “American Horror Story” missed the cut, including Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Taissa Farmiga, Dylan McDermott, and Cheyenne Jackson, all of whom appear in four seasons of the show. “Wow,” you might be thinking, “without names like that, how can there possibly be enough left over for a list?” In fact, that cut-off still leaves us with a whopping 12 performers. These are the actors who have appeared on the most seasons of “American Horror Story,” ranked from the most prolific to the least.
