Ryan Murphy has officially announced an American Horror Story spin-off series. Murphy shared an image of a recent Zoom call he had with the AHS cast and revealed that the new series will be titled American Horror Stories. He did not give any other information out, except for the fact that the episodes will all be one-hour long and self-contained stories. He had this to say.
"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. It was so much fun and I'm glad we caught up. I miss everyone."
AMC has yet to comment on Ryan Murphy's big American Horror Story news, but fans should find this pretty exciting, especially since Murphy seems to be teasing that something else is coming in the near future. The long-running FX horror anthology series was preparing to shoot season 10, but it's unclear when that will be able to happen at the moment. Murphy has even said that if things don't turn around soon, he'll have to change the storyline.
Not pictured in Ryan Murphy's Zoom call screenshot is Macaulay Culkin, who will have a starring role in American Horror Story season 10. Ryan Murphy recently spoke about getting the Home Alone actor on board for the hit series and says things are going to get pretty weird for Culkin and co-star Kathy Bates in one particular storyline, which made the actor instantly want to jump right into the project.
For Macaulay Culkin, weirder is always better, and it sounds like Ryan Murphy is well aware of this. Murphy also said that he would like to continue to work with Culkin on future projects. Perhaps American Horror Stories could be one of those other ideas that the two can collaborate on. While Murphy didn't announce who the cast of the new spin-off series will be, it is believed that much of the American Horror Story cast will return for different roles. For now, we'll just have to wait and see what happens when Murphy and crew are able to get back to work.
With most of the world having a lot more time on their hands, it has led to a lot of binge watching and creativity. For Ryan Murphy, it looks like he was able to finish up work on American Horror Stories and pitch it to the AHS cast. Hopefully FX will make a full announcement with more details in the near future. For now, we'll just have to sit back and wait to see what Murphy has cooked up for horror fans this time around.
