Has ‘American Horror Story’ Been Renewed For Season 11? Here’s What We Know

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Are you a fan of American Horror Story? Ryan Murphy’s creepy series has been popular with many over the years, with its stories of witch covens, alien invasions, small town vampires, haunted hotels, and more!

Last year, American Horror Story reached its tenth season but a year on, there is still no news on Season 11.

So, what is going on? Has American Horror Story been renewed for an eleventh season? Or have we seen the last of this dark horror series? Here’s what we know.


Has American Horror Story Been Renewed For Season 11?

At the time of writing, there is no confirmed release date for American Horror Story but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Previous seasons have premiered around September and October so Season 11 is expected to air sometime in the fall.

UPDATE: Deadline has now confirmed the new season will air this fall although there are no details of the plot at the time of writing.

In the US, the show will likely stream on FX and in the UK, it will likely debut on Disney+.


What will American Horror Story Season 11 Be About?

We have no idea. But in a now-deleted tweet, Ryan Murphy did ask fans to vote on a potential theme for the next season. The themes up for consideration included Piggy Man, Bloody Mary, Christmas horror, Sirens, and Plague. If you took part in the Twitter poll, it might be that your preferred choice will be the overall fan choice for the upcoming season.

For now, though, you are just going to have to wait. If that’s as frustrating for you as it is for us, know that many other people are getting frustrated about the lack of information too.

According to PopBuzz, some fans of the show are going on strike until Ryan Murphy reveals more about the upcoming season. In an open letter posted on Twitter, one member of AHS Zone wrote:

“Effective August 1 we will not be posting about American Horror Story Season 11 or about American Horror Stories season 2 until such a time comes that mothership series receives an official, overdue acknowledgement of its existence.

“This can come in the form of a logo reveal, a premiere date, a title announcement, a casting confirmation, plot details, the launch of sweepstakes website, key art, or some other substantive form of promotion.”

If that’s not enough to get Ryan Murphy to reveal more details, we don’t know what will! Well, other than a ghost, vampire, or a witch putting the pressure on him while he’s sat his in his writing room, of course.

But here’s what we do know. Unlike Season 10, the eleventh season of American Horror Story won’t be a double feature. It will return to the single-story format that was the norm for the previous seasons. FX Chairman John Landgraf confirmed this when speaking to The Wrap. He said:

“What I can tell you is that the concept for Season 11 is one story…it actually takes place in different timelines but it’s one subject, one story, with a beginning, middle and an end, like many of the prior stories.”

This won’t be the first time the show has used different timelines to tell its story, of course, but as for what will be happening in Season 11’s scattered time periods, we will just have to wait and see!


Who will be in the cast of American Horror Story Season 11?

As no information has been released about the upcoming season, we can’t say for sure. But as the show has several regular players, including Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, and Evan Peters, there is the chance that they will pop up again in one form or another.


Is there a trailer for American Horror Story Season 11?

Sadly no, and there isn’t even a teaser to whet our appetites. If the show is to air in September or October, the trailer will likely pop up soon. In the meantime, check out this trailer for American Horror Story’s scariest story moments. We know it has no clues for Season 11 but it’s a good way to prepare yourself for the horrors that are to come.

And that’s all we know for now! We aim to update this page whenever new information on the upcoming show is released.
