The talented folks of American Horror Story finally are ready to resume production on the award-winning horror anthology’s tenth season on FX.
Series creator Ryan Murphy recently jumped on his Instagram profile to share the good news–and drop yet another hint about the theme driving Season 10–as reported by comicbook.com.
In his post (seen on this page), Murphy wrote, “Looks like American Horror Story Season 10 is go for an October (fitting) production launch. Thanks to everyone who is working hard to assure a safe start for the cast and crew.” Accompanying the highly anticipated message was an enigmatic picture of a mouthful of pointy teeth against an eerie black background. Another Murphy tease?
Could be. After all, earlier in the year, Murphy hinted that the weather would play a crucial part in the upcoming season, suggesting the show needed to be shot earlier rather than later so that the prevailing weather on the outdoor sets matched the storyline.
“A lot of what I was gong to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment,” he said during an interview earlier this year. “It was a weather-dependent show.”
In addition, back in May, Murphy posted another pic on Instagram that hinted at a beach theme for the season. Sneaky, sneaky.
The debut for Season 10, as reported here in Horror News Network, was moved back to an as-yet-unannounced date in 2021–because of the delay in the production schedule due to the COVID-19 mess–instead of the traditional October coming-out party.
When the show–which has already been renewed for a 13th season–does air on FX next year, fans will be treated to the usual cast of characters, including Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock. And this new season will see former child star Macaulay Culkin join the ensemble in what has been described as an “insane” role. Time will tell.
