“American Horror Story” Spin-off Announced By Ryan Murphy

Updated

on

For almost a decade, American Horror Story has been a blueprint for anthology television. With countless awards to its name, the show has been one of FX’s biggest programs. Now, creator Ryan Murphy is bringing a spinoff series to the established franchise.

More Stories On The Way

On Instagram, Murphy shared a photo of him and American Horror Story cast members in a Zoom call. With everyone in quarantine, production on everything has been halted. This doesn’t mean the cast and crew aren’t conversing with each other while they wait. “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,” Murphy stated in the post. “It was so much fun and I’m glad we caught up. I miss everyone!”

American Horror Stories is an ideal name for this spinoff. Delivering multiple stories in one season is perfect for those wanting something quick to watch. It can be upsetting for longtime fans of the franchise, though. Many of them enjoy getting immersed in season-long storylines. Earlier this year, American Horror Story was renewed for three more seasons. It’s unclear if the American Horror Stories is one of those included seasons. 

Don’t Blame It On The Weatherman

Season 10 of American Horror Story was ready to go before the coronavirus epidemic happened. Like every other production in Hollywood, things are up in the air right now. For Murphy, the epidemic came at the wrong time. “Well, I don’t know, because a lot of what I was going to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment, it was a weather-dependent show. So now I don’t know. I don’t know what we’re going to do. I don’t know what I’m gonna do next with that show. I don’t know if I’ll accelerate another season or wait till next year to shoot this one,” Murphy told The Wrap.

if Murphy decides to jump into the next series, season 10 will be put in the backburner. This season would’ve marked the return of Sarah Paulson. The Emmy-nominated actress stunned fans by not appearing in 1984. This stemmed from Paulson’s work on Murphy’s Netflix show Ratched. She originally had plans to appear in a smaller role, but she dropped out of the show completely. Season 10 would’ve also seen the American Horror Story debut of Macaulay Culkin. Recently, the Home Alone actor has been featured in Dollface and Changeland.

No Time For Sleep

For Murphy, this is another one of his numerous projects in the works. At the beginning of May, he unleashed the miniseries Hollywood on Netflix. This series follows actors trying to find work in the Hollywood Golden Age. The show reunites Murphy with American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott.

Murphy isn’t done with Netflix just yet. The writer has two more miniseries in development. Halston follows the real-life story of fashion designer Halston. Ewan McGregor will take over the title role of this five-episode miniseries. Murphy will also turn the Broadway musical A Chorus Line into a 10-episode miniseries. The aforementioned Ratched is slated to debut sometime this year. Murphy’s $300 million deal with Netflix was signed in 2018. In 2019, he unveiled his first show with the streaming service titled The Politician. Following rave reviews, the show was picked up for a second season.

Murphy also has a handful of non-American Horror Story shows picking up steam on FX and Fox. FX’s Pose and American Crime Story will both jump into season three. Fox’s 9-1-1 was recently renewed for a fourth season. While there’s a lot on his plate, Murphy is a mastermind of juggling multiple things at once.
