Who would have predicted that the show that introduced us to the term “cranking” would still be going strong after a decade and a half?
That’s a bit of an open question, to be honest. Season ten got off to a great start with Red Tide, but Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Stories offshoot Death Valley let us down in the second half of the season.
However, this does not rule out the possibility of another season of American Horror Story. This year, FX re-upped Murphy’s show for a whopping three more seasons, which will take us through at least 13 seasons of Murphy’s main series.
For over a decade, American Horror Story was FX’s most-watched show, according to FX chairman John Landgraf. “Ryan and Brad [Fulchuk] are the undisputed masters of horror TV,” Landgraf remarked at the time.
Is there anything else we may expect from this beautiful freak show shortly? How far will the show’s creative team innovate with its format in season 11 of American Horror Story?
Is there going to be another crossover? As far as I’m concerned, Jessica Lange should reprise one of her most iconic performances at least once more on the silver screen…
Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming eleventh season of American Horror Story.
American Horror Story Season 11: What’s the Potential Release Date?
No release date for American Horror Story’s upcoming season has been announced as of May 2022. However, unlike many other series, there appears to be a good basis for determining when it will return to our television sets.
Despite the show’s complex internal timeline, American Horror Story has maintained a fairly regular release schedule throughout its decade-long existence. For the first eight seasons of the show, each new episode aired in September or October, with the season’s horrifying (or occasionally just plain puzzling) climax taking place right before the holiday season.
Even though 2020 was canceled due to COVID delays, the show kept its consistency and returned in October 2021 for season 10 despite this.
We can presumably expect season 11 of American Horror Story to premiere in September or October of 2022, providing nothing else goes wrong with the production.
In the US, it’ll be on FX as usual and we expect that it’ll air on Disney+ in the UK like season 10.
American Horror Story Season 11: Who Will Be in the Cast of the Upcoming Episodes?
As of May 2022, no cast members have been confirmed for the most recent AHS globe.
American Horror Story regulars like Evan Peters and Jessica Lange have decided to retire from the show throughout the years after making several appearances. As of right now, Sarah Paulson is the show’s most powerful cast member.
That season ten may be her last was said to her during an interview on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen (via E! Online).
This is the first time in three years that I have no idea. The current season of Horror Story appears to be my final one. Her response was, “I don’t know,” and her tone conveyed her uncertainty. In the past, I’ve found myself saying, “Yes! Let’s do it!'” whenever he approached me with an idea for a whack-a-doodle character.” However, I’m stumped.
Whack-a-doodle-doodle characters are fun to play, so how could you possibly not know that? What a no-brainer that would be!)
Newer fan favorites like Angelica Ross, Leslie Grossman, Cody Fern, and Billie Lourd will get more exposure as the old guard makes way for new endeavors.
If they do arrive in season 11, it appears like Finn Wittrock will not be joining them as he is currently filming a new HBO Max show as Green Lantern. Digital Spy spoke with Violet’s original cast member Taissa Farmiga about a possible return in season 11:
How do I respond to this question? American Horror Story is a large part of my identity. Violet was the first role I ever had when I was 17 and just starting in acting. That’s why it’s like, ‘Ah, it’s a touch of home,’ whenever someone brings up Horror Story.
In a way, it’s a matter of timing.” I’m aware that there have been discussions in the past, but I was preoccupied with filming, traveling, and implementing all of these protocols at the same time.
If it’s the right time and the right opportunity, I can’t say no.” In addition, the thought of making a cameo is great because we get to meet up with the cast and say, “Hey, it’s me.”
On the other hand, I’m still close with a few of the makeup artists and the rest of the crew. They’re talking about the show all the time around you. ‘But,’ I say to myself, ‘I miss it.’ It’s a strange blend of emotions, don’t you think?
At the very least, it’s not a ‘no.’
American Horror Story Season 11: What Will the Plot Be About?
We do know that American Horror Story will not reprise its two-and-a-half season model as in season 10, but will instead return to a more tried and proven setup for season 11. Flashbacks will be used to clarify the tale.
The Wrap quoted John Landgraf as saying: “Season 11 has a single story, and that’s all I can tell you about it. Even though it takes place in several different periods, it is still a single subject, one story with a beginning, middle, and a conclusion.”
However, the cunning creative team behind American Horror Story, led by series creator Ryan Murphy, is notoriously secretive about each of the show’s themes.
In April of the following year, he decided to let the fans have a say in the future of the franchise.
On Twitter, Murphy encouraged followers to vote on a range of themes, including Aliens, Christmas Horror, Bloody Mary, Piggy Man, Sirens, and the Plague. Since the aliens played a significant role in season ten, we doubt they’ll be returning very soon. Isn’t there something else we could do here?
This may not have anything to do with season 11, as Ryan used the words “Expanding the Universe” in his original tweet. That’s all we have to go on for the time being, however, unfortunately.
Sirens and Bloody Mary rounded out the top three most requested drinks. Unlike in the past, Ryan did not divulge the winner or how the results would affect the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Coven.
American Horror Stories spin-off American Horror Stories season two is expected to premiere in July and will reportedly not include Bloody Mary.
Sirens may be up for grabs as a result of this. If reports that American Horror Story is filming in New York City this summer are true (though no official confirmation has been provided), this would support the fan idea that the program is based on Fire Island.
According to Ryan Murphy’s work, Fire Island is a well-known LGBTQ+ vacation and party spot. Pirate folklore is also prevalent in the area, and it follows the theme of sirens, who are said to have lured sailors to the coast and their deaths.

Reddit speculation aside, there is no evidence to support this notion, and Murphy will not be revealing his secrets any time soon.
However, we’ll let you know as soon as we have more solid information.
American Horror Story Season 11: Is There a Trailer Available Yet?
Please be patient — no new footage has been released yet, and our abilities of foresight aren’t strong enough to disclose what fresh footage will look like until we overthrow the present Supreme.
As for American Horror Story season 11, we wouldn’t be surprised if it premieres by the end of Summer 2022 at the earliest.
Either way, we’ll keep you posted.
