American Horror Story Season 10 Production Just Got Delayed Again

It looks like the tenth season of American Horror Story just hit yet another bump in the road...

According to a report from Variety, production on the latest season of Ryan Murphy's beloved, Emmy-winning horror anthology series — entitled Double Feature — is being temporarily put on hold for the next few days after an unidentified actor on the show tested positive for COVID-19. 

Deadline is also reporting that due to possible exposure, many other people in production who were on-set and worked closely with the unnamed actor are also being told to isolate, though FX has yet to make a statement or give more details and insight into the situation.

This isn't the first time Double Feature has hit a production snag, though. 

The highly-anticipated tenth season of the series, which originally debuted back in 2011 with Murder House, was originally supposed to be shot in early 2020 but, like a lot of things, was put on the back-burner when most of the world went into lockdown during the early days of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. 

After months and months of waiting and various, cryptic social media posts, Double Feature was officially confirmed by Ryan Murphy in March 2021, and longtime fans have eagerly been awaiting its return to the small screen. 

There's no word on whether or not this latest production delay will affect the new season's premiere, but as of writing, American Horror Story: Double Feature is still scheduled to start later this summer, August 25, on FX.
