Though Ryan Murphy casually broke the news of “American Horror Stories” in May 2020 on social media, little else is known about the spin-off series, save for its format of one-hour self-contained episodes. Deadline reported that the series, like most television and movie productions, was forced into hiatus in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic before resuming production once Hollywood re-opened.
With lockdown and quarantine delays behind it, “American Horror Stories” is now slated to debut in July 2021. Despite Murphy’s lucrative deal with Netflix (via The Hollywood Reporter), his new series will release on FX on Hulu, with a new episode airing each week for 16 weeks. The tenth season of “AHS,” called “Double Feature,” will air its finale on Halloween, which would indicate an August premiere for “Double Feature” (via Decider), meaning that “AHS” fans will have two weekly horror shows from Murphy to take them from summer into fall.
