The latest season of American Horror Story is on its way, and fans are impatiently waiting for news of the latest macabre tale from the mind of Ryan Murphy. Seriously, who would have guessed that the show that introduced us to the ‘world’ of cranking would still be going strong over a decade later? Let’s have more about AHS Season 11.
This anthology series is always mixing it up, which gives us the best of horror—and sometimes not-so-much. Season 10 started out exceptionally well with Red Tide, but Death Valley half let us down With plotting that felt more like AHS Season 11 hit-and=miss spinoff from Ryan Murphy.
But one thing you can trust is that American Horror Story shouldn’t be counted out just yet. FX renewed Murphy’s flagship program for a staggering three more seasons in January 2020, bringing the series to at least 13 instalments… so we have a long way to go, folks.
FX’s key figures, John Landgraf and Louis C.K., chimed in on the topic: “Landgraf and I discussed discovering new talent in genre series at FX. We wanted to ensure that Ryan Murphy didn’t get too big for his shoes. He is one of our favorite shows, but we thought it was important to keep him under control.” As for why FX would pass up the opportunity to develop a similar show with Ryan Murphy himself at the helm, Landgraf explained: “I think there are other people who could do it better than us.”

What Happened in American Horror Story Season 10?
The tenth season of American Horror Story is titled Double Feature, which premiered on September 14, 2021, and will conclude on November 16, 2021.
The season was split into two parts, with the first half focusing on a group of summer camp counselors terrorized by a serial killer and the second half following a group of Hollywood actors who film a remake of a classic horror movie that goes wrong.

Double Feature featured returning cast members Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, Gus Kenworthy, and Frances Conroy. New cast members include Macaulay Culkin, Kaia Gerber, and Dylan McDermott.
The first part of the season, set in 1989, focuses on a group of counselors at Camp Redwood who are targeted by a serial killer named Mr. Jingles (played by John Carroll Lynch). The second part of the season, set in 2008, follows a group of actors filming a remake of a classic horror movie called Night of the Living Dead. The cast and crew find themselves being terrorized by a real-life zombie outbreak.
AHS Season 11 Release Date: What We Know So Far?
We’re eagerly anticipating news of an exact release date for American Horror Story Season 11 in October 2022. Still, FX Chairman John Landgraf has confirmed that the new season will be on our screens by Autumn.
While the events within American Horror Story might be a confusing mess, the series’ release timeline has remained consistent throughout its ten-year run. A new chapter premiered around September or October each year until season nine, reaching its terrifying (or sometimes just plain confusing) finale just before Christmas.
Season 10 won’t premiere until October 2021, almost two years after season 9 ended. The COVID pandemic caused delays that pushed the release date back from 2020 to 2021, but the show will return on a yearly schedule from here on out.
Assuming everything goes according to plan, we can expect Season 11 of American Horror Story to come out in October 2022. FX will broadcast it as usual in the US, and Disney+ will likely air it in the UK as they did with previous seasons. We’ll let you know if anything changes, though.
AHS Season 11 Cast: Speculation
Information on American Horror Story season 11 cast is currently limited, although there are a few names we know. Desperate Housewives star Charlie Carver is in the cast and was seen kissing Grammy nominee Isaac Powell during one scene in Manhattan’s West Village, according to shooting on the streets of New York.
Isaac played the role of Troy Lord/Theo in American Horror Story: Double Feature last year, and Charlie played Huck Finnigan in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series Ratched.
Some of the previously recurring characters are also returning to AHS Season 11. Zachary Quinto, Patti LuPone, Sandra Bernhard, and Billie Lourd have all been cast in roles. (via Deadline) After seasons two and three’s Asylum, Quinto was a major note, as he had not appeared in the AHS universe since season two’s Bloody Face.
American Horror Story is known for having the same faces appear in different roles throughout the show, most notably Murphy’s close friend and collaborator Evan Peters. However, over time some actors like Jessica Lange have left the cast. The longest-serving member currently is Sarah Paulson.
Paulson said that while she’s enjoyed her role in the franchise, she would like to see another actress take over for a bit. “Let someone else scream and run and cry for a second,” Paulson said. “I’m not getting any younger, and my nervous system can’t handle it like it used to!” As for other names? We’re not too sure yet.
AHS Season 11 Plot Speculation
The million-dollar question for American Horror Story is always, “what will AHS 11 focus on?” We’ve heard several theories, but we do know that the series won’t be repeating its two-half season format like in season 10. Instead, they plan to go back to a more tried and true setup for season 11’s outing: one story with flashbacks explaining the narrative.
As John Landgraf told The Wrap, AHS season 11 of the show will focus on one story told across different timelines. He said it would have a beginning, middle, and end like many previous seasons.
While this provides little information, the lack of details is nothing new. The clever production team, led by series creator Ryan Murphy, is notoriously secretive about each American Horror Story theme.

Murphy broke new ground in April 2021, allowing the fandom to suggest what they wanted to see next. In a now-deleted Twitter poll, Murphy asked fans to choose from various themes, including Aliens, Christmas Horror, Bloody Mary, Piggy Man, Sirens, and Plague. We don’t think the aliens will be returning anytime soon after their appearance in season 10. What about these other possibilities?
In Ryan’s original tweet, the most popular selections were “Expanding the Universe” and “Sirens.” This might all be meaningless, as he used the phrase “expanding the universe,” which means it may have nothing to do with season 11. However, right now, we’re stuck on this. The final two choices that proved to be most popular were Sirens and Bloody Mary. The only problem is that Ryan never revealed which option won the vote or whether these results would impact AHS season 11.
What About AHS Season 11 Trailer?
Sorry fans, there’s still no sign of new footage, and until we take down the current Supreme and ascend to our rightful throne as coven leader, our prophetic skills aren’t strong enough to reveal what new material will look like. Although we may not see AHS season 11 until October 2022, stay tuned for more information.
