Nearly two weeks after series co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed that a number of familiar American Horror Story faces met to have discuss work plans for the upcoming tenth season and drop news about spinoff series American Horror Stories, FX Networks has officially given the project a green light. American Horror Stories, a spinoff series consisting of one-hour, self-contained stories set within the AHS universe (and possibly where the previously-announced Coven side project will end up). The tenth season of the flagship series is still listed, but no further details were released.
Last month, Murphy offered fans an update during an earlier event promoting Hollywood, confirming AHS was supposed to begin filming in early April before things changed dramatically: "I was supposed to start shooting the new season of "American Horror Story" and the new season of 'American Crime Story: Impeachment' this week. That obviously is not happening. I had shot one episode of my limited series with Ewan McGregor, 'Halston.' That got shut down. I had shot an episode-and-a-half of 'Pose.' That shut down."
While Murphy his show's will suffer temporarily, that wasn't his major concern: "So, yeah, I had four or five things that were impacted. That doesn't bother me. What I'm trying to do is make sure that my cast and crew hear from me and feel taken care of and know that there's someplace they can turn, because it's a dark time and a scary time for so many people. I just want to make sure all my people feel safe." Set to the tune of Orville Peck's Dead of Night, the cast reveal video above confirmed that AHS alums Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock will return.
