In a new post this week, Murphy has revealed another clue about what fans can expect to see in the new AHS season.
Murphy began teasing clues to AHS fans about what season 10 will entail back in February. He first teased the potential theme for the new season and posted another teaser hinting the new season focuses heavily on the beach.
However, plans for season 10 quickly began to change as the year progressed. Murphy planned to begin filming American Horror Story’s tenth season earlier this year. However, the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to the show’s production.
In an interview at the start of May, Murphy shared that the plot of season 10 is heavily reliant on warm weather. This falls in line with the past clues involving the beach and sunny weather. Since filming has been pushed back significantly into possibly the latter part of the year, Murphy said that season 10 may have to change in its entirety.
However, it now appears that this may not be the case. AHS fans got an update from FX this week. The network announced that AHS season 10 has been pushed back to 2021 due to the production shutdown.
Along with the news of AHS coming back next year, Murphy is sharing another clue about what the anthology’s tenth season is about. He took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a new season 10 clue. The clue is another image of a beach setting, reinforcing the assumptions that the new season’s setting and plot won’t change after all.
There have already been a number of theories about what season 10 could be about. Some fans believe it could involve a natural disaster surrounding water like a tsunami or a hurricane. Nevertheless, Murphy made it very clear that his latest post is, in fact, a season 10 clue.
“American Horror Story. Clue,” his caption reads.
Peters revealed last year that he was sitting out the last season and didn’t really expand why. He has previously talked about the mental toll acting on the show takes on him. Paulson also shared recently why she didn’t appear in the show’s ninth season, 1984.
Joining Paulson and Peters for the tenth season are Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock. Macaulay Culkin will also be joining as an AHS newcomer.
Along with AHS season 10 arriving in 2021, Murphy’s new American Horror Story spinoff has also been added to the FX 2021 release schedule. The spinoff, called American Horror Stories, will feature hour-long episodes that tell a story from beginning to end. It was also reported this month that Murphy is currently working on a new series involving AHS stars Leslie Jordan and Dylan McDermott.
