We’re getting closer and closer to getting some of our favorite shows back on TV!
Ahead of Disney’s upfront presentation, FX chairman John Landgraf announced approximate premiere dates for several of the networks shows, including our favorites, American Horror Story and American Crime Story, as well as the spinoff American Horror Stories.
Murphy recently announced a spinoff of his flagship series American Horror Story, called American Horror Stories, which will be an anthology take on the format. The weekly series will spotlight a different horror each episode and will premiere on Hulu in July.
Season 10 of American Horror Story, titled Double Feature, will follow the spinoff. It’s also got a ten-episode season, and the final episode will air on Halloween. While American Horror Stories is premiering on Hulu, the original Horror Story stays on FX.
AHS Double Feature will feature two stories, “one by the sea,” and “one by the sand.” We don’t know exactly what each story will feature, but we know that each of the mini-seasons will feature a different cast. The first part, “by the sea,” features regulars like Sarah Paulson, Leslie Grossman, and Kathy Bates, plus newcomer Macauley Culkin. Other cast members include Lily Rabe, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Adina Porter, Angelica Ross, and Paris Jackson.
This year also sees the long-awaited return of another classic Murphy series, American Crime Story. This year’s story is titled Impeachment, and focuses on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal. It’s got a packed cast that includes Clive Owen as Clinton, Billy Eichner as Matt Drudge, Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, and Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky. Impeachment will debut on FX in September.
Update, 6/3/21: FX announced the exact premiere dates for these shows and more.
American Horror Story: Double Feature will premiere on Wednesday, August 25 on FX and will appear on Hulu the next day. Meanwhile, the new one-off anthology series American Horror Stories will premiere next month, Thursday, July 15 exclusively on Hulu.
If crime is more your speed than horror, you'll have to wait until the fall. Impeachment: American Crime Story will premiere Tuesday, September 7. The network also announced premiere dates for the new seasons of Archer and What We Do in the Shadows, and also the premieres of new shows Reservation Dogs and an Untitled B.J. Novak Anthology Series.
