The latest installment of FX’s horror anthology series, American Horror Story, is coming soon. Season 11 is set to debut on Wednesday October 19th, according to Entertainment Weekly. The show is expected to return to New York City, where it filmed seasons one through eight. In addition to returning to the Big Apple, the upcoming season will feature several new actors.
In February 2018, Ryan Murphy announced that he had signed Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Angela Basset, Adina Porter, Jim Parson, Denis O’Hare and Colton Haynes to star in the next chapter of his hit drama.
Season 10 premiered on Tuesday nights on FX beginning October 5th 2017. The season finale aired on Sunday, November 3rd 2017.
When does American Horror Story season 11 come out?
For many fans of the hit FX horror anthology series, it feels like we’ve already been waiting forever for American Horror Story season 11 to finally air. And while there are still six seasons left in the current cycle, fans are anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Emmy-winning series.
The upcoming season is called AHS: NYC, and according to reports, it will take place in New York City. Production on the tenth season began earlier this year, and according to Deadline, filming wrapped up just last month.
So what exactly do we know about the upcoming season? Well, aside from the fact that it’ll be set in New York City, little else is known about the plot of the episode. But the cast has been teasing us with some hints along the way.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Paulson revealed that she wasn’t sure if her character would survive the season. “I don’t think I’m gonna make it,” she told EW. “But you never know.”
She continued, saying, “This one is really scary. This one is really scary. You’re gonna see things that you haven’t even imagined. You’re gonna see people die.”
And speaking of deaths, Evan Peters shared his thoughts on the subject during a recent appearance on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio program. He said, “I honestly believe that I am going to die on camera. I don’t want to jinx anything, but I feel like my days are numbered.”
He added, “I’m getting older and I’m getting sicker. So I’m trying to enjoy every day that I have left because tomorrow could be my last day.”
American Horror Story season 11 theme: What will AHS 11 be about?
The new season of American Horror Story will reportedly take place in New York City. Fans are already wondering whether the setting will be a reference to the city’s infamous history as the site of 9/11 attacks, or perhaps even a nod to the upcoming presidential election.
In September 2022, Murphy finally revealed the first teaser for A HS season 11 on Instagram – though, a pretty tiny one.
In a short clip posted to the account, an image of a young girl holding an apple appears on screen. The caption reads: “Apple. Worm.”
Fans immediately began speculating that the fruit could represent the Apple iPhone XR, which was announced earlier this week. However, the device isn’t due to hit stores until November 3rd, meaning it wouldn’t make sense for the show to use such a specific product.
AHS season 11 fans who run the Twitter account @AmericanHorrorStory also took to social media to express their frustration over the lack of information regarding the upcoming season. On October 13th, the group called out the showrunner for failing to provide more details about the upcoming season.

There hasn’t been much news about the upcoming season since then, aside from the aforementioned Instagram post by Murphy. On October 19th, he tweeted a photo of himself wearing a T-shirt featuring the same apple and worm design as the teaser video.
American Horror Story season 11 cast: Who is returning?
Despite not having a single clue about what the new season is actually about, we do know that some familiar faces are coming back for American Horror Story season 11. EW reports that Billie Lourd (who played Violet), Leslie Grossman (Violet again!), Denis O’Hare (Truelove), Zachary Quinto (Evan), Patti LuPone (Mama Louise), Sandra Bernhard (Lily Rabe), Isaac Powell (Cody Fern), Joe Mantello (Dr. Thredson) and Charlie Carver (Zach Young) will all be returning for this upcoming season.
The rest of the cast — including Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Adina Porter, Finn Wittrock and Lady Gaga — will reportedly join the show later this summer.
For those hoping that Angelica Rose will return in yet another brilliantly written role, it sounds like there might be some bad news. In an interview with ET Canada, actress Angelica Ross revealed that she is not returning for the next season. “I’m not sure,” Ross told the outlet when asked whether she’d be returning for the new installment. “I don’t think I am.” She added, “I love working with Ryan and everybody else, but I just didn’t feel like doing anything this year. So I’ll see how my schedule goes.”
Ross had been rumored to reprise her role as Madison Montgomery, the daughter of Dylan McDermott’s character Ben Harmon, since early February. However, Murphy recently confirmed that the character won’t be making an appearance in season 11.
Will Sarah Paulson be in American Horror Story season 11?
Sarah Paulson recently opened up about her future plans in Hollywood, telling Variety that while she’s happy to continue playing iconic female characters such as Norma Bates on American Horror Story, she wants to explore other genres and projects. “I’d love to do something different,” she admitted. “But you know what? Let somebody else scream and run and c–k!”
The actress went on to say that she feels like she’s done playing those specific types of parts for awhile now, adding that she’s excited to see what other opportunities are out there for her. “If people think I am going to play one part forever, I don’t want to do that anymore,” she remarked. “I want to try some things.”
Paulson also revealed that she’s been approached about returning to AHS, though she hasn’t had much luck convincing producers to bring her back. “They haven’t called me yet, but I’m sure they will soon,” she joked. “Maybe next year!”
Will Evan Peters be in American Horror Story season 11?
Evan Peters has been absent from the set of American Horror Story since shooting wrapped on Season 9 earlier this summer. But the actor isn’t out of work entirely — he’s still working on another project for FX Productions’ Ryan Murphy. “I’m doing a movie called Monster,” he told ET Canada at the Toronto International Film Festival. “It’s based on the real life story of Jeffrey Dahmer.”
The film stars Peters as serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. In 1991, Dahmer murdered 17 people and served five years behind bars. He later confessed to killing 28 people and serving 16 years in prison. After being paroled in 1997, Dahmer continued to kill and eat human flesh.
In addition to playing Dahmer, Peters will also star in the upcoming horror anthology show Cult. The 10-episode series follows several different stories each centered around a cult. Peters plays a character named Father Oliver, who runs the cult. When asked what fans could expect from the show, Peters replied, “There are some really good actors in it. I think you’ll see some great performances.”
While Peters hasn’t officially signed on to return to American Horror Story, he did say that he’d love to do something else with Murphy. “He’s such a genius, man,” Peters said. “I mean, he’s just incredible. We had a lot of fun together. I hope we do something together again.”
Meanwhile, Peters is also confirmed to return to the cast of AHS: 1984. The ninth installment of the franchise will premiere on October 5th. Peters will reprise his role as Tate Langdon, the son of Constance Langdon played by Lady Gaga. However, it seems like he won’t be making much of an appearance, according to E! News.
“We’re gonna shoot in December and January, and then we start production in February,” Peters said. “So, I don’t know how long Evan will be gone, because he’s got to go back and finish shooting Monster.”
American Horror Story season 11 plot: What is AHS 11 about?
As previously reported, American Horror Story season 11 has begun shooting in NYC. This time around, production is expected to take place in the city’s West Village area. With Halloween approaching, it seems like there are plenty of chances for fans to catch glimpses of the show’s stars while out and about.
In addition to the usual cast members — including Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Cody Fern, Finn Wittrock, Billie Lourd, Colman Domingo, Adina Porter, Zachary Quinto, Jim Parsons, Chris Colfer, Finn Wolfhard, Emma Roberts, Adam Levine — many of them have been seen wearing costumes and walking around the neighborhood.
The most recent sighting came over the weekend, where several people were photographed taking photos of a group dressed up as the Manson Family. In addition to Peters, Paulson, Bassett, and Rabe, the rest of the cast included Taissa Farmiga, Evan Rachel Wood, Jamie Brewer, Chaz Bono, and James Cromwell.
While the majority of sightings seem to indicate that the show will focus on the 1970s and 1980s, there have also been reports of a flashback scene set in the 1950s. One such report claims that the episode will revolve around a “horror” family who lived in the 50s. Another report suggests that the episode will feature a character named Michael, who is described as a “serial killer.”
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next!
