He posted it on Monday morning, including a photo of the AHS cast Zoom call, with many of the core cast members digitally getting back together during quarantine.
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.
We still have no idea whether they will air on FX with the originals, or whether they will be on other streaming services.
Season 10 of American Horror Story was meant to air on FX this year, but, as with many studios, production postponements caused by the coronavirus pandemic have meant that it may well alter release dates, along with many others.
Murphy also revealed that Macaulay Culkin and Kathy Bates will have 'crazy sex' in the 10th season of American Horror Story.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the Home Alone star had been cast for the upcoming series of the hit horror - but not much was known about his character.
However, in a break from the tradition of keeping things strictly under wraps, the show's creator Ryan Murphy revealed one racy detail to the actor before he signed up.
Speaking to E! News, the 54-year-old said: ""So, I have this very, very great insane part. And I asked to speak to him on the phone and he said OK.
"[When] I cast, I never let people read things, usually. I said, 'OK, here's the pitch.' And I told them the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. And he paused and he goes, 'This sounds like the role I was born to play.' So, he signed up right then and there."
Well, there's something to look forward to...
