After almost two years without any new American Horror Story in our lives, the highly-anticipated tenth season is finally in production. Ryan Murphy has done his usual stellar job of teasing fans of the show as to what the theme will be for the landmark tenth season, but he's now revealed what the title is, and as expected, there's a twist.
Announcing the title in a video via Instagram, Murphy revealed that the title would be Double Feature with the tagline "Two horrifying stories…one season.” Other than season six (Roanoke), which is divided into two clear cut sections, the standard format for AHS has been to tell a singular story over one season. As to what the two stories might be about, Murphy has offered fans another cryptic clue with “One by the sea… and one by the sand."
The new season could be a love letter to the classic era of movie double features in the same way Quintin Tarantino and Robert Rodriquez did with Grindhouse back in 2007. Double Feature sees the return of AHS mainstays Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who missed out on the previous season (1984); they'll be joined by fellow regulars Lily Rabe, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Angelina Ross, Finn Wittrock, and making his AHS debut this season is none other than Macaulay Culkin.
Double Feature isn't the only new AHS on the horizon, as last year Ryan Murphy revealed that the series was getting a spin-off. Title American Horror Stories, the spin-off series takes the anthology format back to its most authentic incarnation with single standalone stories contained to a single episode. American Horror Stories will arrive later this year, with the first season consisting of sixteen episodes that will see many of Murphy's regular cast members make an appearance.
American Horror Story Double Feature will land on FX later this year.
