It’s almost nine years since the hugely popular anthology show American Horror Story premiered, and the series doesn’t show signs of finishing any time soon. In January, it was renewed for another three seasons, and Season 10 will arrive this year. The first poster has now been released.
The poster doesn’t exactly reveal much about the next season, but it does at least hint at what its theme might be. It shows a pair of hands gripping the earth, with the sea in the background, as if someone–or something–is slowly crawling out of the ocean. In addition, creator Ryan Murphy accompanied the image with an Instagram post which states, “Things are beginning to wash up on shore…” What could these things “things” be? Sea zombies? We’re going to have wait a while to find out, but in the meantime, here’s the poster:
American Horror Story Season 10 doesn’t have a confirmed premiere date yet, although Murphy did previously state that the show will arrive in 2020. Every season so far has premiered in either September or October, so it’s very likely that the next one will appear then too.
Several cast members have been confirmed for Season 10. Last week, it was announced Home Alone star Macauley Culkin will be joining Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, and Angelica Ross. In addition, regular fan favorites Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are returning to the series. The duo were not involved in last year’s season for the first time in the show’s history.
