Does Ryan Murphy’s latest creation have a release date yet?
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the makers have been unable to assign a release date to ‘American Horror Stories’ yet. The series was to start production this year but that doesn’t seem a possibility anymore taking into account the pandemic situation.
However, at the same time, fans are also in for some good news as ‘American Horror Story’ has been renewed for 3 more seasons, meaning it will go on for at least 13 seasons. The makers are already almost through with season 10 which was supposed to release this year but now has been pushed to 2021 as its production also came to an unfortunate halt due to COVID-19.
The season 10 line-up was announced in February 2020 and will include, alums Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates along with Macaulay Culkin, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, and Angelica Ross.
Considering Murphy’s eagerness to work with some of his favourite actors, it is safe to assume that a lot of ‘American Horror Story’ alums will most likely be seen featured in ‘American Horror Stories’. But even though there is no release date yet, it is being said that the series will most probably be out by 2021.
