After AHS creator Ryan Murphy revealed earlier this month that a spinoff series would be arriving, it’s now being confirmed and will be a part of FX’s 2021 release schedule.
The spinoff was initially announced with the news that each hour-long episode will tell a story from beginning to end.
Just like the filming of season 10 and other movie and TV show productions, American Horror Stories will not be able to go into production at the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic. Today, FX is also confirming the delay of season 10 into 2021.
Along with the new spinoff, FX is also greenlighting other shows including Pamela Adlon’s comedy Better Things, New York Times’ documentary series The Weekly and Season 15 of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
As for the tenth season of the franchise’s core series, many details have been revealed already.
Season 10 cast members Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are making their return which has fans undeniably excited. Sadly, with the delay confirmations for the show pushing it to 2021 fans will be waiting longer to see them return.
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.
Recently, Paulson also shared why she didn’t appear in the show’s ninth season, 1984.
Paulson currently stars on the Hulu show Mrs. America alongside Cate Blanchett. She reveals in an interview with Vulture that in order for her to star in Mrs. America, she could not appear in American Horror Story: 1984.
“It [Mrs. America] was shooting exactly when American Horror Story was shooting, and I thought there was no way I could do both,” Paulson shares. “So I went to Ryan Murphy and I said, ‘do you mind if I sit this season of American Horror Story out? I want to do this instead’ and he very graciously said ‘yeah.’”
