Nearly a decade ago, Ryan Murphy delivered the first season of American Horror Story. Since the first season aired in 2011, the show has gone on to become one of the most popular series on TV.

Along the way, AHS has grown an almost cult-like following. Full of twists and turns, dark characters, violence, suspense, and everything else imaginable, it’s easy to see why the show just wrapped up its ninth season last fall.

With more than 100 episodes, the FX series has starred major actors and actresses such as Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Kathy Bates.

Now, though, Murphy will be teaming up with FX to produce a spinoff series of American Horror Story.

The new series will be called American Horror Stories. Each episode will run for an hour and will focus on individual stories. Essentially, each episode will tell its own story, which is a departure from the current format.

While no casting decisions have been made public, Murphy did drop a hint about who could be featured. The producer posted a screenshot on Instagram of a Zoom call that included many of the famous AHS cast members, including Jessica Lange.

“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!

Unfortunately, no release date has been set. The COVID-19 pandemic has obviously put the movie and film industry at a standstill.

In fact, Murphy recently told The Wrap that the 10th season of AHS might even get pushed back.

“A lot of what I was going to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment,” Murphy explained to the outlet. “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.”

Ultimately, we’ll just have to wait on when the spinoff series will make its debut. But you can be sure American Horror Story fans will be eager to watch another Murphy production.
