The upcoming season will be so much different.
This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of March 23, 2021.
Long before season 9 premiered, FX already renewed American Horror Story for season 10.
The highly-acclaimed horror anthology series was renewed for season 10 back in 2018, and since then, we have been eagerly anticipating what the upcoming season is going to be.
The great news is that some of our favorite cast members who skipped the previous season are returning. The upcoming season will be much different than the past installments.
Here is everything we know.
There is no specific release date for American Horror Story season 10 yet, but it is expected to release this year.
On May 26, 2020, FX announced that season 10 will be delayed to 2021 after the production was affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. American Horror Story boss Ryan Murphy said that they "hope to start shooting later this summer (May 2020)", but got postponed to October that year.
After five October debut, season six premiered in September, and every succeeding season has followed the schedule. Hence, season 10 will most likely release by September 2021.
We will continue to monitor the show's upcoming announcements.
We already confirmed the return of the following AHS favorites for season 10.
In the early seasons of the horror anthology, Jessica Lange played central roles in the series. Unfortunately, she left after season 4 (Freak Show). Fans have been anticipating her return since then. Sadly, it looks like it's still not happening in season 10. Lange told TheWrap that she doesn’t think she’ll be coming back to the horror franchise after making her long-awaited return through a cameo for season 8, “Apocalypse.”
"I don't think I would want to start from scratch and create a character," she said.
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters skipped season 9, but the two are confirmed to return for season 10.
Evan Peters took a break from the series after going through a "full-on burnout" for portraying heavy roles.
The biggest casting news for season 10 is Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin making his debut in an as-yet-undisclosed role which involves a "crazy, erotic sex" scene with Kathy Bates' character.
Murphy told EW that he has always loved Macaulay Culkin's work, adding, "I loved everything that he's done, I love the stuff he did in Home Alone, I also loved the sort of the older, more recent stuff that he did. And he hasn't worked in a while."
Murphy went ahead and talked to Culkin on the phone about the character.
"I said, 'OK, here's the pitch'. And I told them the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. And he paused and he goes, 'This sounds like the role I was born to play.' So, he signed up right then and there."
The latest casting announcements are the return of Spencer Novich and Frances Conroy for season 10.
The show is working hard to keep season 10 spoilers from the public. However, they have been giving a couple of teases here and there, leaving fans to start creating theories.
Season 10 casting announcement featured a murky video of the beach against a grey sky interspersed with the names of the cast.
It seems that the upcoming season will feature most scenes in the ocean, so fans should get ready for a nautical horror ride.
On March 1, 2021, Finn Wittrock told EW that the upcoming season will be very different from the past.
"I think this is OK to say, I think the suspense in this and the tight, constrained nature of the story is different than other seasons. I was really interested in trying to mount the pressure in the right way, if that makes sense. It is different in tone than a lot of the other seasons."
The actor added that season 10 "is different in tone than a lot of the other seasons." Exactly how different is what we have yet to discover.
Finn also revealed that he will be playing the most 'normal' character he has ever portrayed in the anthology series.
On March 20, 2021, Ryan Murphy finally shared the official title for the upcoming season: Double Feature.The short video announcement teases that the upcoming season will feature 2 stories, one by the sea, and another by the sand.
