FX Bumps ‘American Horror Story’ Season 10 To 2021, Orders AHS Spinoff

FX is getting all its ducks in a row for next year, and the shuffling includes delaying the 10th season of the popular American Horror Story series until 2021 and officially confirming the AHS anthology spinoff.

The cable network said the Ryan Murphy-created AHS mothership–which has already been renewed through a 13th season–will be moved back from its customary October debut slot this year. FX added that it has, as expected, ordered the new American Horror Stories spinoff for next year, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The anthology spinoff was casually announced by Murphy via Instagram a couple of weeks ago (as reported here in Horror News Network), but this is the first official word from FX on its anticipated debut.

In fact, the first mention of the new anthology came through a Zoom chat among Murphy and several of his actors, including Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

Few concrete details on the spinoff have been revealed at this time, but it was hinted by Murphy that the new series may well feature some of the AHS cast members. American Horror Stories is expected to consist of hour-long shows, with a different horror story in each contained episode.

Both shows will join FX’s roster for next year–a packed lineup that reportedly includes What We Do In The Shadows, Impeachment: American Crime Story, Fargo, Y: The Last Man and The Old Man.

The network expressed high hopes for its current and future shows. “We couldn’t be more excited about our roster of new and returning shows slated through next year,” said FX Entertainment president Eric Schrier. “It has been an extraordinary time for FX, with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business.”
