American Horror Story fans should prepare to be excited (and scared!). Season 10 of the popular horror series debuts in October this year. In the meantime, co-creator Ryan Murphy is teasing something brand new.
American Horror Story anthology spinoff series
On Monday this week, American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy posted on his Instagram page. He revealed he has been keeping himself busy during quarantine with some exciting projects. These projects include a possible new, spinoff anthology series titled American Horror Stories.
The reason for the plural is that each episode will be a one-hour, brand new horror story. Each stand-alone episode will star a number of our favorite AHS cast members. These could include Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Finn Wittrock, Emma Roberts and Billie Lourd.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its limitations, the stars all got together for a Zoom reunion call. According to Murphy, he and the cast “reminisced about the good times.” He mentioned the spinoff called American Horror Stories, which will be one-hour, contained episodes.

“American Horror Story” cast zoom call…where we reminisced about the good times…the spin off we're doing called "American Horror Stories" (one hour contained episodes)…when we will start filming the next season of the mothership…and other stuff I cannot print. It was so much fun and I'm glad we caught up. I miss everyone!
Murphy couldn’t say when filming of the “next season of the mothership” will start. He also said there is “other stuff” he can’t print right now. Murphy closed by saying it was “so much fun” and he was glad they all caught up. He added that he misses everyone, as, of course, do fans of the show.
Renewal of AHS on FX
As mentioned by ET, due to the success of 1984, American Horror Story was renewed by FX for a further three seasons in January. Up until then, the series had been renewed for Season 10, which will feature Macaulay Culkin and is set to premiere in October 2020.
At that time, chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions, John Landgraf, dubbed Ryan and Brad Falchuk the “undisputed masters of horror TV.” He mentioned the anthological limited series as sustaining its success for almost a decade, saying it was their highest-rated series.
Landgraf said at the Television Critics Association that FX is grateful to them. He also thanked Dana Walden and their studio partners “for committing to another three years.” He further said American Horror Story has showcased a “wealth of award-winning actors” since the beginning. Landgraf said they appreciate everyone’s contributions towards a new and unforgettable installment of AHS.
Fans of Murphy’s work can enjoy his latest series, Hollywood on Netflix. The series features a group of aspiring filmmakers and actors, trying to make it in the Golden Age of Tinseltown. The cast includes Raymond (Darren Criss), Jack (David Corenswet), Archie (Jeremy Pope), Claire (Samara Weaving) and Camille (Laura Harrier.
Fans now have to bed patient for Season 10 of American Horror Story, starting in October this year. Hopefully, more news of the spinoff anthology series, American Horror Stories, will come soon.
