If you can never get enough of American Horror Story, here’s some good news: Ryan Murphy has announced a new spin-off series.
Murphy, the creator of American Horror Story, Glee, Pose, and more of your TV favorites, took to Instagram to share the news. The spin-off is called American Horror Stories—that’s gonna get confusing—and it’s basically a bunch of one-off episodes in the same vein as the scary anthology series.
“American Horror Story cast Zoom call…where we reminisced about the good times…the spin-off we’re doing called American Horror Stories (one-hour contained episodes)…when we will start filming the next season of the mothership…and other stuff I cannot print,” the showrunner wrote in his caption on May 11. “It was so much fun and I’m glad we caught up. I miss everyone!”
On Tuesday, May 26, Entertainment Weekly confirmed that FX has picked up American Horror Stories and that the format will be similar to Black Mirror and The Twilight Zone: a different, self-contained story for each episode.
Here’s everything we know about the series so far:

American Horror Story cast members will appear in the spinoff. Murphy also confirmed this on Twitter in November 2020. “It’s the AHS spin-off,” he wrote. “We are doing 16 one-hour standalone episodes delving into horror myths, legends, and lore…many of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love. More to follow…”
The premiere date. Unclear, though production on this was probably affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The start date for American Horror Story season 10 was. “You know, nobody so far has called me up and said, ‘Okay, we have a plan to move forward for shooting,’” Murphy told The Wrap earlier this year about AHS 10. “So until that day, everybody is kind of on pause. I honestly don’t know. But it’s a great season and I know all the actors are chomping at the bit to get into it, so that’s all I know.” Cast member Finn Wittrock said in an October 2020 interview that the cast will start filming “soon.”
