The 11th season of Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” will premiere this fall on FX.
FX chairman John Landgraf revealed the news during his executive Q&A session at the cable channel’s virtual presentation at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour Tuesday.
The debut date announcement marks the first news of “AHS” Season 11, an installment fans have been clamoring for info about since Season 10, “American Horror Story: Double Feature,” concluded in October 2021. That 10th season was split into two stories, “Red Tide” and “Death Valley.”
Landgraf gave no specific premiere date for “American Horror Story” Season 11 beyond “fall,” though the fact a time frame has been given at all means there’s a good chance Murphy will be sharing the title, theme and cast for the upcoming season in the coming months.
Meanwhile, the second season of FX’s “AHS” spinoff anthology series, “American Horror Stories,” is currently airing on Hulu.
In addition to the O.G. “American Horror Story” and “American Horror Stories,” Murphy — who is close to the end of his current mega overall deal at Netflix, having left his old home at 20th Television for the streamer in 2018 — and his producing partner Brad Falchuk are also working on another season of “Feud,” another season of “American Crime Story,” and two new spinoffs “American Sports Story” and “American Love Story” for FX.
“American Horror Story” debuted in 2011 with its “Murder House” installment. The horror anthology, which often includes recurring players Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman, among others, has been renewed through Season 13 at FX. So you’ll have at least three more seasons — including the upcoming 11th — before Murphy stops giving you a fright.
