‘American Horror Story’ Season 10 Will Bring Back Fan Favorites

Share on Facebook

American Horror Story has well and truly become a fan-favorite amongst horror fanatics. The show, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, catapulted to fame in 2011 with its eerie first season titled “Murder House,” which centers on a family that moves into a house, haunted by its deceased former occupants.

The anthology horror series is currently airing its ’80s slasher-themed ninth season, American Horror Story: 1984, and while many fans firmly believe the first 3 seasons have remained the best, it’s still retained a significant viewership.

One of the main hooks of the series was its star-studded cast. The likes of Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters had become the faces of the franchise, and, as they slowly dropped off, it left fans feeling pretty disappointed. Let’s be honest, AHS without Jessica Lange has truly not been the same.

Season 10 is already in the works, and with the prospect of it being the show’s last, Murphy has been pulling out all the stops to ensure fan-favorite actors return to screens for one last hurrah.

But American Horror Story has created a league of its own and a reputation for terrorizing even the most unphased viewers.

The horror anthology series kicked off with its aptly named first season “Murder House,” which propelled the show to global small-screen stardom.

The second season of the hit show starred the legendary Sarah Paulson as a journalist named Lana Winters. Set in 1964, the horror spectacle takes place in the confines of an insane asylum where a notorious killer named Bloodyface is committed to. Budding journalist, Lana attends the sanatarium to report on its bakery but is secretly hoping to get the scoop on the killer. But things take a dark turn when Lana herself is locked away in the facility.

“Asylum” also gave us this iconic scene…

The likes of 2013’s “Coven,” 2015’s “Hotel,” starring singing powerhouse, Lady Gaga, and last year’s “Apocolypse” have all made for gripping viewing.

Including legends, Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Taissa Farmiga, to name a few.

When you think of American Horror Story, at its core, Paulson, Lange, and Peters immediately spring to mind.

Its flagship cast also garnered equal popularity – with many tuning in each year to see what new characters the actors had morphed into this time.

Many fans agree that the show isn’t what it used to be, back in the Murder House, Asylum, and Coven days.

Titled “American Horror Story: 1984,” the season draws in influences from classic ’80s slasher flicks.

9 seasons is a lot as it is, but Murphy believes there’s still more horror-related content the franchise can churn out.

And it seems Murphy has big plans for what could be the show’s final season.

Back in 2015, Jessica Lange announced that she wouldn’t be returning for the show’s fifth season, and Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson were notably absent from this year’s slasher-themed season.

But it looks like Murphy is far from finished, and with the possibility of the next season being the last, he has been reaching out to the fan-favorite actors to see if they’ll return for one last horror extravaganza.

Speaking to Deadline about the show, Ryan Murphy said: “We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back – because it might be our last season. It’s the last season we have contracted.”

Murphy explained that he’s been “quietly” reaching out to various people, all of whom so far, have agreed to come back.
“So, I’ve been quietly reaching out to various people. Some people I haven’t reached out to yet because I was like do I have a role. So far, everybody I reached out to said ‘Yes’, so that’s been great.”

“I’ll just sort of say, the people who helped build this show into what it is, who believed in it from the beginning, have been contacted and are interested. So if you look at the iconography of the first 3 seasons, you can figure who I’ve gone to and who might be coming back,” he teased.

According to reports, Evan Peters has been contacted and Sarah Paulson has also said she’s “keen” to make a return.

One person, however, who won’t be making a comeback is Jessica Lange. Speaking about the possibility of her returning to the hit series, the legend told The Wrap that it’s “very unlikely.” “I think a lot of the actors that I was working with, people that I really love working with, like Sarah [Paulson] or Frances [Conroy] or Kathy [Bates] – I don’t know who’s in this new season, but I don’t think it would be the same.” Okay, so we have to admit, we’re very disappointed that she likely won’t be returning. After all, the show has never really been the same since she departed. Either-way, we look forward to seeing who Murphy manages to bring back.
