American Horror Story season 10, Double Feature, is coming to keep you up at night
It’s now been nearly a decade since the show’s debut season, Murder House, aired for the very first time. Since then, American Horror Story has released nine bone-chilling seasons, and it seems like Murphy’s work is going to keep surprising us every time. AHS has even birthed a spinoff in American Horror Stories, an episodic anthology on Hulu. And there's no end in sight, since FX renewed the series through season 13!
American Horror Story season 10 was announced back in 2018, even before the ninth installment aired. Seaosn 9, subtitled 1984, paid tribute to the slasher films of the '80s.
Season 10 was delayed due to the pandemic, like so many other film and TV productions. But when the industry got going again, Murphy began teasing the theme of the next AHS. He revealed it was called Double Feature and that it would tell two stories — "one by the sea, one by the sand." It's essentially two seasons in one, Murphy said, or "double the viewing pleasure."
Here's everything we know so far about American Horror Story season 10, Double Feature.
FX has set the American Horror Story season 10 release date for Wednesday, August 25, 2021.
The network first ordered season 10 way back on August 3, 2018, in advance of a 2020 premiere. However, the pandemic delayed production and AHS season 10 was pushed back to 2021.
Filming for the first part of Double Feature took place December 2020 through May 2021. Filming for the second part began filming on July 8, 2021.
Double Feature is expected to consist of a total of 10 episodes. With an August 25 premiere, that will take AHS season 10 right up to the week of Halloween.
Episode titles, writers and directors haven't been revealed yet.
In an Instagram post, Ryan Murphy officially confirmed which cast members will be appearing in Double Feature.
The 10th season of American Horror Story will see the return of fan favorites such as Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates and Lily Rabe, all of whom featured in earlier seasons of the show. We’re also excited to see notable actors like Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Frances Conroy, Finn Wittrock, Leslie Grossman, and Angelica Ross make an appearance.
In that same interview, Murphy also made a tantalizing comment about an erotic sex scene that would take place between Culkin’s and Bates’ characters. "I said, 'OK, here's the pitch'. And I told them the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. And he paused and he goes, 'This sounds like the role I was born to play.' So, he signed up right then and there."
Murphy took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo of Culkin standing next to AHS regular Leslie Grossman.
There is some bad news about the cast of AHS Double Feature. Emmy winner Jessica Lange has denied a potential return to the series in an interview with The Wrap. "I don't think I would want to start from scratch and create a character," she said.
The teaser doesn’t reveal much beyond that. It does correspond to Murphy's description that the season will be split between two stories, one about the sea and one about the sand.
