Fans will have to wait a bit longer than usual for American Horror Story Season 10. However, that means that we only have more time to speculate about what Ryan Murphy has in store for us in this milestone installment. We’ve already had ghosts, aliens, evil Nazi doctors, freak show performers, killer clowns, more ghosts, more killer clowns, the literal apocalypse, and a cursed summer camp. But even after all this, AHS still finds ways to surprise us every single season.
As details are slowly emerging about what to expect in American Horror Story Season 10, we already know it’s got a stellar cast in place and have gotten some clues about the theme (or at least what was supposed to be the theme). So, what’s coming up in AHS next season? We’re rounding up everything we know so far below.
It will premiere in 2021. Prior to the production shutdown, AHS Season 10 was expected to premiere in the fall of 2020. However, in May 2020, FX announced that AHS Season 10 wouldn’t premiere until 2021.
Production will begin in October. Ryan Murphy revealed to USA Today that Season 10 of American Horror Story was supposed to begin filming the last week of March but had been put on hold indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic. On Aug. 28, Murphy shared on Instagram that production would begin — fittingly — in October.
Teeth are involved: In the same Instagram post where Murphy announced the production date, he also shared a picture of grinning sharp teeth and said it was a clue for Season 10. Are we talking mermaid teeth? Is there a JAWS tie-in? Maybe some Rocky Horror Picture Show vibes? We never can tell.
It might feature a major Murder House crossover. On April 26, Murphy shared an image of Rubber Man on Instagram with the very cryptic caption “Coming soon…” The idea that Rubber Man may make an appearance in Season 10 is pretty surprising given that the iconic rubber suit just returned in Apocalypse. However, since the upcoming season is a milestone one, it does make sense that Season 10 may pay homage to several different memorable moments and characters from the show’s past. And if Rubber Man does return, we still won’t know who will be in the suit until the new episodes arrive, giving us yet another thing to speculate about!
Sarah Paulson will officially return. 1984 marked the first season without Sarah Paulson, but the actress isn’t planning on making that a trend. The actress confirmed she’d be back for Season 10 in January. “I did ask Ryan [Murphy] if the question was asked to me, could I say that I was coming back, and he said ‘yes’ you could say. So, yes I will be back on American Horror Story,”Paulson said.
As for what type of character Paulson would like to play next, Paulson told TV Guide in October the only thing on her wish list is to work closely again with Evan Peters, who also sat out 1984. “I miss Evan and I miss acting with Evan. So I’d love to have that experience again,” Paulson said. “If he’ll come back, I’m back.”
Evan Peters will also return for Season 10. It looks like Sarah Paulson got her wish. In February, Ryan Murphy revealed Evan Peters would be back to star in the upcoming 10th season of the FX anthology.
After Peters announced that he wouldn’t be appearing in 1984 in April 2019, the actor hinted the following month that he wasn’t ruling out a return to the series in the future. Yeah, absolutely, never say never,” Peters told Digital Spy. “I just… Yeah, we’ll see what happens.”
