Ryan Murphy–creator of the FX mega-hit anthology American Horror Story–sure knows how to tease the fans of his show as it approaches its 10th season.
The writer/producer reportedly turned to Instagram to post a shot of the infamous Rubber Man with the tag line, “Coming soon…”, according to Deadline.
Fans of the long-running series took that post and ran with it. With Season 10 expected to kick off this autumn–most likely in September or October–could Murphy be tipping his creative hand and letting the Rubber Man out of the bag?
The iconic (and terrifying) character–who has managed to be scary without ever uttering a word–last appeared in Season 8, Apocalypse.
During Rubber Man’s reign of terror on the anthology, the hard-to-miss suit has been worn by Dylan McDermott, Zachary Quinto, Cody Fern and Evan Peters. Of that group of actors, only Peters is confirmed as returning for the landmark 10th season. Could that mean he will be the one who squeezes into the rubber suit this time around?
Other cast members joining Peters for Season 10 include Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, Angelica Ross, Sarah Paulson and newcomer Macauley Culkin of “Home Alone” fame.
By the way, this isn’t the first time Murphy has teased fans about the upcoming season. Last month, he released the first poster for the upcoming season of American Horror Story, a poster that showed two hands reaching out of a body of water and gripping the land. The accompanying caption read: “Things are beginning to wash up on shore.” Hmmm…
The show–which has been renewed for three more seasons after this one–does not have a confirmed debut date for this year yet, so keep reading Horror News Network for any and all updates (and any other creepy hints from Ryan Murphy!).
