American Horror Story Season 10 was about to begin shooting when production was halted due to COVID-19. And today we hear the theme may change amid production shutdowns.
Murphy told TheWrap: “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. You know, nobody so far has called me up and said, ‘OK, we have a plan to move forward for shooting.’ 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.”
Season 10 will (hopefully) still star Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Angelica Ross, and Macaulay Culkin.
Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, James Wong, Jennifer Salt, Bradley Buecker, Alexis Martin Woodall, Crystal Liu, Adam Penn, and John J. Gray serve as executive producers. Alexis Martin Woodall, Patrick McKee, Robert M. Williams Jr., and Ned Martel produce.
So far we have seen AHS: Murder House, AHS: Asylum, AHS: Coven, AHS: Freak Show, AHS: Hotel, AHS: Roanoke, AHS: Cult, AHS: Apocalypse, and most recently, AHS: 1984.
Many believe that the last season AHS: 1984 was the best yet. In fact, the season sports a 87% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: A near-perfect blend of slasher tropes and American Horror Story’s trademark twists, 1984 is a bloody good time.
