American Horror Story Spin-Off Confirmed As Part Of FX's 2021 Slate
| Last updated
Just a couple of weeks after Ryan Murphy announced plans for an American Horror Story spin-off, the project has now been given the official go-ahead by FX, according to Variety.
US TV channel FX reportedly greenlit the weekly hour-long anthology as part of its 2021 slate - perhaps ambitious to aim for 2021 at the moment, given the current circumstances, but we'll happily take the optimism.
FX entertainment president Eric Schrier said: "We couldn't be more excited about our roster of new and returning shows slated through next year.
"It has been an extraordinary time for FX over these past three months with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business. We believe the continued strength of our original series coupled with the growing awareness of FX on Hulu as our streaming platform will make the FX brand stronger and more relevant and accessible than ever before."
While the cast have not yet been confirmed, it looks likely that we'll be seeing many of our old favourites, as earlier this month creator Ryan Murphy shared an exciting screenshot from a recent Zoom call, announcing that he and many stars were working on something special.
He revealed that the new project is to be called American Horror Stories and will be a series of one-hour long stories, all based on different plotlines in singular episodes, rather than full seasons.
Murphy wrote in the post: "American Horror Story cast Zoom call... where we reminisced about the good times...the spin-off we're doing called American Horror Stories (one-hour contained episodes)... when we will start filming the next season of the mothership... and other stuff I cannot print.
"It was so much fun and I'm glad we caught up. I miss everyone!"
According to Variety, other new series coming to FX include A Teacher, The Old Man, Y: The Last Man, an untitled BK Novak project, Hip Hop Untold, Hysterical, Pride and A Wilderness of Error.
