Ryan Murphy is expanding the already twisty world of American Horror Story.

The prolific showrunner said Monday on his Instagram feed that he's working on American Horror Stories, an individual episodic anthology series that is an offshoot of the FX veteran series. It's unclear if the project is for FX or Netflix, where Murphy is now based under a $300 million overall deal.

Murphy, FX, American Horror Story producers 20th TV and Netflix did not immediately respond to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment. (This post will be updated should any additional information become available.)

The news arrives after FX in January solidified the future of its most-watched original series, renewing American Horror Story through its 13th season. Season 10 of the series, which redefined and reignited the seasonal anthology show, was on the calendar for 2020. (Given the current state of the world amid the novel coronavirus crisis, it's unclear if the show completed filming and will make its annual October launch.) American Horror Story features a new story each season, though many of them have been interconnected.

Murphy is currently enjoying strong buzz for his latest Netflix endeavor, the star-studded limited series Hollywood. He next has season two of The Politician, Ratched, A Chorus Line, Boys in the Band and Halston, all for Netflix.





“American Horror Story” cast zoom call...where we reminisced about the good times...the spin off we're doing called "American Horror Stories" (one hour contained episodes)...when we will start filming the next season of the mothership...and other stuff I cannot print. It was so much fun and I'm glad we caught up. I miss everyone!
