‘American Horror Story’ Season 10 Production Shuts Down Due to COVID-19 Exposure (EXCLUSIVE)

Yahoo Entertainment 21 July, 2021 - 09:00am

By Mónica Marie Zorrilla

American Horror Story” Season 10 production has been temporarily halted due to a positive COVID-19 case and potential exposure to the illness, Variety has learned. The positive case was in what’s been termed “Zone A” in COVID-production protocol, and was an actor on the show.

Originally scheduled to premiere on FX in late 2020, production on the Ryan Murphy horror series was delayed due to the pandemic. Season 10 began filming in December, and has not had any previous shutdowns. News of the production’s suspension — which likely will last until at least the end of the week— follows growing concerns about a rise in COVID cases and a new indoor mask mandate “regardless of vaccination status” being instated and implemented by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health this past week.

The tenth season of the series, entitled “American Horror Story: Double Feature,” is slated to premiere Aug. 25 at 10 p.m. on FX. The season is divided into two parts, with two separate stories and mostly separate casts. Part 2 is currently filming.

“Double Feature” stars Macaulay Culkin, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, Finn Wittrock and Kaia Gerber.

Calls to Disney, which produces “American Horror Story,” and an email to FX were not returned.

In the new agreement between the studios and the unions, which were announced on Monday, producers can mandate that those in Zone A must be vaccinated.

“American Horror Story” is not the only show to be besieged by the virus. This past weekend, production on Season 2 of Netflix’s “Bridgerton” shut down for an indefinite period of time following its second COVID-19 case in a week.

The “American Horror Story” franchise kicked off in 2011 with the flagship “Murder House” installment. Throughout its nine editions thus far, it has averaged almost 10 million total viewers per episode across linear and non-linear platforms, and has been nominated for 95 Emmy Awards, winning 16 trophies over the last eight years. The franchise’s “American Horror Stories” spinoff recently debuted its inaugural season July 15 with back-to-back episodes on FX on Hulu.

American Horror Story Shuts Down Season 10 Production After Positive COVID Case: Report

PEOPLE 21 July, 2021 - 07:27am

Production on the latest iteration of the FX anthology series, titled American Horror Story: Double Feature, has been brought to a halt after a positive case of COVID-19 was detected, according to multiple reports.

According to Variety, an actor on the show received a positive test, in what is known as "Zone A" in COVID-19 production protocol.

Production will pause "for the next few days," Deadline reported.

A representative for FX did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Production on the series' tenth season was originally scheduled to begin last year before it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The season is now scheduled to premiere Aug. 25 on FX.

Earlier this year, show co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed in a social media post that the upcoming season will center around "two horrifying stories, one by the sea...the other by the sand."

An array of AHS favorites are set to appear, including Sarah PaulsonKathy BatesEvan PetersBillie LourdLeslie Grossman, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe and Adina Porter.

Macaulay Culkin has also joined the ensemble cast, a role Murphy, 55, teased back in March with an Instagram photo of the Home Alone star, 40, and Grossman, 49.

"Something wicked this way comes," he wrote in the caption. "American Horror Story Season Ten. #AHS10 #AHS."

AHS is just the latest television or film production forced to shut down due to the viral illness.

Earlier this week, Bridgerton shut down production for the second time in a week after another cast or crew member tested positive for COVID-19. Although Netflix did not disclose who tested positive, the infected individual is now isolating. Netflix did not have any additional details upon PEOPLE's request for further comment.

Similarly, the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series, House of the Dragon, temporarily stopped filming amid the COVID-19 pandemic this week as well.

Netflix also paused production on its film adaptation of Matilda Sunday while Tom Cruise's seventh Mission: Impossible installment also halted filming in the U.K. after a positive COVID-19 test last month.

American Horror Story season 10 stops production after positive COVID-19 case

Several people involved are having to self-isolate.

American Horror Story has been forced to halt production on its eagerly anticipated tenth season, after someone on set tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Deadline, filming has been paused for a few days as the case has led to a number of those involved having to self-isolate. Despite reaching out to FX, the US network that has housed the anthology series since its debut in 2011, the publication was unable to find out who was affected specifically.

Officially titled American Horror Story: Double Feature, the show's upcoming instalment will reportedly follow dual plots: one by the sea, and another by the sand.

"It means two seasons for the fans airing in one calendar year," co-creator Ryan Murphy previously teased, revealing that the events will take place in Provincetown, Massachusetts. "So double the viewing pleasure."

Part One's cast has already been announced, and will include returning players such as Frances Conroy, Leslie Grossman, Denis O'Hare, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Angelica Ross, Finn Wittrock, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson. RuPaul's Drag Race star Chad Michaels, The Tomorrow War's Ryan Kiera Armstrong and Home Alone's Macaulay Culkin are also on board.

As for Part Two, only Arrowverse actor Neal McDonough, who is set to play President Dwight Eisenhower, is confirmed so far. It has been rumoured that real-life figures John F. Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, Richard Nixon and Marilyn Monroe will also feature as characters.

Season 10 is expected to premiere on August 25, almost two years after its predecessor American Horror Story: 1984 kicked off in the US.

American Horror Story Season 10 Production Shuts Down

Screen Rant 20 July, 2021 - 11:08pm

While each season features new characters, many actors have starred in multiple seasons of the show. This season of American Horror Story will feature the return of Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, and Finn Wittrock, as well as some new faces like Macaulay Culkin and Neal McDonough. In the previous seasons, the show has focused on a singular narrative revolving around the theme, so this is surely a different concept as far as its storytelling, which is something that has intrigued fans.

Per Deadline, it has been reported that American Horror Story: Double Feature will stop filming for a few days due to a positive COVID-19 case. With the season having two separate stories, the show filmed its first story featuring most of the cast members, including Paulson and Culkin, between December and May in Provincetown, Massachusetts, with no reported delays. The second story with McDonough and a cast soon to be announced, began filming at the beginning of this month in Los Angeles.

In the midst of what has been a long pandemic, it is important that everyone remains safe and handles production with care and caution as various films and shows start to resume filming. Hopefully, everything will work out and production for American Horror Story: Double Feature will be back to filming its second story soon. It is clear that the show is taking some new steps and working to make this milestone season unique and one of a kind, and it is evident that it will be coming back in a new, special way. Season 10 of American Horror Story is expected to premiere on August 25 and is set to contain ten episodes.

American Horror Story season 10 filming halted in LA due to COVID-19

Production on season 10 of FX's American Horror Story has been halted due to COVID-19.

An actor on the show tested positive for the coronavirus, Variety reported Tuesday, and others have potentially been exposed.

Season 10 titled AHS: Double Feature began filming in December and stars Macaulay Culkin, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, Finn Wittrock and Kaia Gerber.

Halted: Production on season 10 of FX anthology series American Horror Story has been temporarily shut down after an actor tested positive for COVID-19, Variety reported Tuesday

The news of the temporary shutdown comes just one day after Hollywood studios and unions reached a tentative agreement that would allow the relaxation of some protocols put in place last year as a result of the pandemic.

The deal announced Monday would allow producers to mandate vaccinations for cast and crew in the so-called Zone A on a production-by-production basis as well as easing the requirement for masks in outdoor places and reducing testing. 

However, Los Angeles Country reinstated a mandatory mask mandate in indoor public places at the weekend regardless of vaccination status due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant.

Other counties in California have followed suit or issued advisories recommending people mask up in indoor settings.

On Monday night, actress Megan Fox canceled her expected appearance at the LA premiere for her movie Midnight In The Switchgrass, citing fears about the virus surge.

And production on two high-profile shows filming in the UK has also been halted in recent days.

On Monday, Game of Thrones prequel The House of the Dragon paused production for two days due to an exposure to COVID-19 involving a Zone A individual among the cast and crew.

‘American Horror Story: Double Feature’ Pauses Production After Positive COVID Test

Yahoo Entertainment 20 July, 2021 - 07:48pm

The individual who tested positive was a member of the FX anthology’s cast, meaning others will also be required to isolate in compliance with COVID safety protocols, according to Variety. The pause is expected to last through the end of the week.

Representatives for FX and “American Horror Story” did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment.

The interruption on “AHS” follows in the footsteps of shutdowns on other major productions in the last week as the pandemic continues around the world. Netflix’s adaptation of the “Matilda” musical and HBO’s “Game of Thrones” prequel pilot were also forced to pause as cases continue to surge in the U.K., while the second season of “Bridgerton” was hit twice last week.

On Monday, Hollywood unions and the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers announced a new agreement on revised safety protocols which, among other things, will allow productions to mandate vaccines for cast and crew moving forward.
