American Horror Story Season 10 Will Bring Back Fan Favourites
| Last updated
There are very few television series which actually terrify their audiences, but American Horror Story is certainly one of them.
Since the show first aired in 2011, fans have been treated to nine seasons which have scared the living daylights out of millions of people around the world.
But with the 10th season possibly being the very last, the show's creator has been reaching out to actors who starred in the early seasons to see if they will come back for one last hurrah.
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-favourite actors to come back - because it might be our last season. It's the last season we have contracted."
"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."
Exactly how many actors have been asked is yet to be confirmed, however, Murphy went on to say that it will be characters from the very early days of the show.
Teasing, he added: "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 three seasons, you can figure who I've gone to and who might be coming back."
According to reports, Evan Peters has been contacted after taking a year off, and Sarah Paulson has also said she's keen to make a return.
One person, however, who seems won't be making a comeback is Jessica Lange.
Speaking about the possibility of her returning to the hit series, the actor told The Wrap that it's very unlikely.
She said: "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."
But while fans of the show may be worried about claims the next series could be the last ever, don't panic. Just last month, Murphy said American Horror could run for another 10 seasons.
Looking back at some of the highlights from the last eight years, the director said season six was a turning point which made him believe they could keep going.
He said: "This was the season that made me think 'OK, this show can go for 20 years.' Because we can keep playing with the format, the form.
"It proved to me we didn't have to have every season be a grand spectacle. We could be raw and rough and verité. It reinvigorated me in some way, after the operas we had done. This felt like an independent film approach. It felt like, 'Ok...season 20? Bring it on.'"
