Ryan Murphy’s anthology series American Horror Story has garnered a lot of praise and attention since it debuted on FX in 2011 because of its spooky, bizarre one-season episodes. American Horror Story redefined the modern horror genre with its debut season, retrospectively dubbed Murder House, which combined gore and traditional ghost story themes with dark sexuality, an incredibly gifted ensemble, and even a few chuckles here and there.
Since then, American Horror Story has, among other things, brought viewers to the circus with Freak Show, allowed them to stay in a haunted hotel, joined a cult, shown one vision of the apocalypse, and imprisoned them in an asylum.
American Horror Story Season 10: Double Feature Trailer
The most recent version, 1984, transported audiences back to the slasher movies of the 1980s, paying tribute to these goofy masterpieces in a way that only Murphy could do. News that FX has renewed the series up until its fortunate 13th season first surfaced in early 2020, thus this forthcoming tenth season may very well be a stepping stone to much wilder things to come.
Many fans are interested in what Murphy will be cooking up next as the momentous tenth season approaches in 2020, and it’s anyone’s guesses what fresh scares the showrunner will conjure. Here is all we currently know about American Horror Story’s tenth season, including the premiere date, storyline, teaser, and main cast.
Who is in American Horror Story season 10’s cast?
Longtime AHS fans certainly could have predicted the majority of the season’s roster based purely on history, but there isn’t much concrete information regarding the enigmatic tenth season of American Horror Story. Because of AHS’s loosely connected universe, Murphy, like many other showrunners, has spent years cultivating a devoted and skilled cast of actors who regularly appear in his productions.
The names of all the actors were listed alongside footage of the shore’s breaking waves and Orville Peck’s song “Dead of the Night” in a brief Instagram video that Murphy shared in February 2019. For the tenth season, several of Murphy’s regulars will be back, including Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, and Finn Wittrock, who have all previously featured on American Horror Story.
(Paulson and Peters have been in the series from the start, but neither appeared in 1984.) Macaulay Culkin, who gained fame as a young actor in the film Home Alone and has been snagging modest television gigs ever since his heyday, is one of the most fascinating new additions, though.
What is the 10th season of American Horror Story’s plot?
Murphy may have concentrated on the beach’s crashing waves in his Instagram video, but there aren’t many narrative specifics to be found there, making it difficult to speculate on what the tenth season of American Horror Story may be about.
The tone of the tenth season will undoubtedly fit that mold given Murphy’s penchant for heightened terror and campy, over-the-top scenarios, but when it comes to themes and places, he’s all over the place. Murphy seems to have touched on pretty much every spooky, scary stereotype you can think of, including alien invasions, insane asylums, witches in the woods, bloodsucking vampires, and carnival freaks, but this inventive showrunner will undoubtedly be able to surprise viewers once the tenth season of American Horror Story premieres.
When will American Horror Story season 10 be available?
The launch date for American Horror Story’s tenth season is still a secret, just like any storyline details. Murphy has been tight about when FX will bring AHS back in honor of this major milestone, but fans may be able to make some educated predictions based on the debut dates of prior seasons.
Fans may reasonably assume that AHS will be a part of FX’s fall programming because it is a prestige television event (the show has previously been nominated for Emmys, and Jessica Lange even won one for her role in Murder House), but the precise launch date is still uncertain.

Although the last four seasons, Roanoke, Cult, Apocalypse, and 1984, all debuted in early September, a fall premiere is all but guaranteed, depending on when FX and Murphy want to kick things off. This is because the first five seasons, Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, and Hotel, all debuted in October. Each season has had somewhere between 9 and 13 episodes, with 1984 having the fewest (9 episodes), and Asylum, Coven, and Freak Show having the most episodes, each with 13.
