The series creator shared an update on the production for the show’s 10th season, which was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. “Looks like American Horror Story Season 10 is go for an October (fitting) production launch,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Friday. “Thanks to everyone who is working hard to assure a safe start for the cast and crew.”
He also shared a picture of some very pointy teeth: “And yes this is a clue.”
Fans immediately pounced on the picture, taking to the comments section to share their guesses as to what the disturbing dentition might mean for the new season’s theme, which has not been announced. Among the suggestions are Jaws, mermaids, vampires, and monsters.
Murphy previously teased the season is “a weather-dependent show” reliant on “a very specific moment.” And the cast announcement video showed a scene of crashing waves against a gray shoreline set to the sounds of Orville Peck’s “Dead of Night.” In May, he also shared a photo of what looks like a New England coastline with the caption, “American Horror Story. Clue.”
Season 10 will see the return of Sarah Paulson, who took a breather from the show in its ninth season, and will also feature Kathy Bates, Macaulay Culkin, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock. Though an exact release date has not been announced, it is slated for a bow in 2021.
AHS is currently renewed on FX through season 13.
