American Horror Story: 1984 wrapped up its blood-soaked, gloriously campy run with a thoroughly satisfying finale that mostly made up for that lackluster 100th episode. In an unexpectedly touching twist, Brooke (Emma Roberts) and Donna (Angelica Ross) were both the final girl, and lived to tell the strange story of everything that went down at Camp Redwood—as did AHS regular Finn Wittrock, who made his debut in the finale as Mr. Jingles, Jr.
Now, the show has already been renewed for a tenth season on FX, and Ryan Murphy announced which cast members will be returning. But it won't premiere on FX until 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Until then, Murphy is teasing the next installment with some intriguing Instagram posts. While we await the next installment, here's everything we know so far about the new story.
The season 10 cast is stacked with talent.
Ryan Murphy took to Instagram on February 26 with his official announcement of the season 10 cast. In a video set to Orville Peck's “Dead of Night,” the cast's names flashed against crashing waves. Most notably, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be back for the new season, after both were sorely missed in season 9. Other returning cast members set for season 10 include Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock.
Plus, Macaulay Culkin will make his American Horror Story debut, acting for the first time since appearing in an episode of Dollface in 2019. In September 2020, Paulson opened up about Culkin's work on the new season of AHS, teasing an exciting arc for his character—and that she will be working with him—in an interview with Collider:
It’s so brilliant of Ryan to do something like that. It’s that thing where he basically says, “Oh, you think you know this actor and you know what they’re capable of? I’m gonna show you something else.” A great big swath of the people that love Macaulay Culkin love him from a particular era when he was a child. To watch him do some of the very grown-up things he’s gonna be doing—because I’ve read the first two episodes—and turning all of your expectations on its head will be thrilling for the audience and good fun. I do get to work with him, so I feel really excited about that. I can tell you that. No one knows that. You know that now.
Murphy previously teased that Season 10 would reunite fan favorites, so perhaps there's room for more? "We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back…I’ve been quietly reaching out to various people," Murphy told Deadline in November. "Some people I haven’t reached out to yet because I was like, ‘Do I have a role for them?’ So far, everybody I reached out to said ‘Yes,’ so that’s been great."
Season 10 will premiere in 2021.
The Hollywood Reporter reported on June 22 that AHS season 10 won't premiere on FX until 2021. In late August, Murphy announced on Instagram that the new season would go into production in October of 2020. He referred to the image of pointy teeth he posted as a "clue" to the new season's theme.
Ryan Murphy is hinting at the theme, but hasn't confirmed it.
In recent years, the theme of each season has generally been kept secret for a long time—sometimes right up until the show airs—so it's not surprising that Murphy isn't going to get into details this early. "Every season by Halloween, I come up with what the [theme] winner is, and I already came up with an idea for season 10," he told Deadline. "There’s always the runner-ups, and I’m like ‘Hmm, could this be something?’"
Another intriguing tidbit? Don't rule out a season of AHS set in space. "We flirted with aliens, we flirted with space, we flirted with some things that were more interesting than others," Murphy continued. "I think that at the heart of it, it’s always about Americana. It would be hard to do something like [space], not that I wouldn’t. The fans write in what they want, and they’re very excited about the Coven stuff and the aliens in season 2. They’ve always wanted something in space." I'm just gonna go on record right now as saying I would be extremely here for an AHS take on the moon landing.
Murphy began teasing the season back in May, sharing a photo of a beach with the caption, "American Horror Story. Clue."
The big winners over the past year in Arizona were the construction and leisure/hospitality industries, which both added more than 10, 000 jobs. Other fast-growing sectors include business services, financial activities and education and health services.
《江城警事》(Battle Creek)，CBS，3月1日播出。重磅剧就是会带来这样的改变。文斯·吉利根在十几年前就为这部亦敌亦友的警探搭档剧写好了试播集剧本，当时他还不是《绝命毒师》与《风骚律师》的主创。如今它终于被CBS拍成13集连续剧了。《法律与秩序：特殊受害者》(Law & Order: SVU)和《我为喜剧狂》(30 Rock)的主演在剧中饰演一个当地警探，《拉斯维加斯》(Las Vegas)主演乔希·杜哈明(Josh Duhamel)饰演一个老练的联邦调查局探员，两人在密西根州巴托溪的塞里尔城共事，相处得很不自在。
At least three more seasons are on the way after Season 10.
Although Murphy is kept busy with various projects at both FX and Netflix, American Horror Story will at least run through Season 13. In January 2020, Deadline confirmed that FX had ordered seasons 11, 12, and 13 of the anthology series. So if your fan-favorites aren't returning for season 10, they could show up in a spooky future installment.
An anthology spinoff series is coming to FX on Hulu.
American Horror Stories, a new anthology series that will focus on a different horror story for each episode (as opposed to each season) is also currently in the works for FX on Hulu.
