Ryan Murphy Shares 'American Horror Story' Spinoff Details
Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story spinoff is starting to take shape.
The prolific showrunner has revealed that the previously announced individual episodic anthology series will be comprised of 16 standalone episodes and will feature familiar faces from the FX franchise. Murphy's announcement also confirms that the series will indeed be for FX instead of Netflix, where Murphy is now based under a $300 million overall deal.
Murphy noted in an Instagram post that the standalone episodes will delve into "horror myths, legends and lore" and that "many of these episodes" will feature familiar AHS stars.
The crossover casting makes sense amid the world of AHS, where most of the seasons have been interconnected. The eighth season, a crossover between the fan-favorite Murder House and Coven cycles, was the biggest nod yet to the show's connected universe.
The new spinoff details also arrive as American Horror Story is currently in production on season 10, after seeing a delay due to the Hollywood-wide production shutdown amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. Typically, AHS airs in October; a premiere date has yet to be announced. In January, FX renewed AHS, its most-watched original series, through its 13th season.
Murphy also recently celebrated the season 10 news by sharing a poster on his Instagram.
It remains to be seen which AHS faces will crossover into the upcoming spinoff. Bookmark this page, which will be updated as new series details are announced.
