At long last, FX has set a late August premiere date for American Horror Story: Double Feature, which will arrive after the anthology spin-off.
American Horror Story season 10 sets an August premiere date on FX and Hulu. Ryan Murphy’s long-running anthology series has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the years. Centering on everything from a standard haunted house to a witch’s coven, American Horror Story has remained a consistent fan favorite with its impressive rotating cast and larger than life tales. Season 10 is so far shaping up to be one of the biggest yet, with a record-breaking budget and a roster filled with beloved returning players. At the same time, though, much of American Horror Story season 10 remains a mystery.
Officially titled American Horror Story: Double Feature, the latest season was once scheduled to debut last year. However, when the coronavirus pandemic pushed production back considerably, fans were left waiting longer than expected. Plot specifics for season 10 are still being kept under wraps, but the cast will include those like Sarah Paulsen, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, Finn Wittrock, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Paris Jackson, and Macaulay Culkin. American Horror Story: Double Feature is said to tell two scary stories, one of which will take place by the sea and the other by land.
At long last, American Horror Story season 10 has an official premiere date. FX has announced Double Feature will debut on August 25 before becoming available on Hulu the next day. This means season 10 will drop more than a month after the anthology spin-off American Horror Stories, which debuts on July 15.
In scoring an August premiere date, American Horror Story season 10 becomes the first cycle of the series to premiere outside of September or October. The fall season has often felt like the appropriate time for the horror series, but perhaps the aquatic theme will lend itself well to the late summer debut. Additionally, American Horror Story: Double Feature‘s positioning after the spin-off’s premiere means it might be a while before more information about season 10 is revealed. FX will want to focus on promoting American Horror Stories first.
Still, after waiting longer than expected for the arrival of American Horror Story season 10, fans can finally rest in the knowledge that they know exactly when it will premiere. A trailer could arrive by the end of the month, or perhaps it will be timed to air alongside American Horror Stories. Either way, American Horror Story: Double Feature is just under three months away. Murphy will likely supply a few more teases in the meantime, so there’s still time for speculation about what lies ahead.
