So far, it has not been confirmed whether or not Roberts is returning for American Horror Story season 10. However, Sarah Paulson previously confirmed that filming for the new season began last fall following various delays.

Due to Roberts’ pregnancy, it’s possible she opted out of appearing in the upcoming season. As well, there’s speculation that a controversial plot from a previous season may make a return in the new season.

Back in October, fans got their first look at American Horror Story season 10 with a new series poster. The poster led to a slew of theories that a potential crossover could happen in the new episodes. However, creator Ryan Murphy quickly squashed all of those rumors.

Joining Paulson for season 10 are Evan PetersKathy BatesLeslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina PorterLily RabeAngelica Ross and Finn Wittrock. Macaulay Culkin will also be joining as an AHS newcomer. At this time, AHS season 10 does not have a confirmed release date.

Along with American Horror Story, Murphy is also launching the spinoff series American Horror Stories. In November, Murphy dropped the show’s official poster and confirmed plenty of familiar AHS faces are returning for the spinoff.
