It’s become a pretty consistent thing every year that horror fans would receive a new season of American Horror Story, one that would boast its own unique theme, setting, and characters. The show has already gone on for nine seasons, so it’s become a norm for the show to come back every year all throughout most of this decade. As it turns out, however, American Horror Story Season 10 might not actually turn out the way fans were hoping. In fact, American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy has stated that Season 10 of the show might have to take a different course from what was already being advertised.
As explained in an interview with TheWrap, it seems that American Horror Story Season 10 was incredibly dependent on the weather and that shooting the season at a specific time was a necessity. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it looks like they won’t be making that much needed specific date. Now Ryan Murphy is unsure for which direction the next season of the show will be taking. Here’s what Murphy had to say:
“A lot of what I was going to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment, it was a weather-dependent show,” he said. “So, now, I don’t know. I don’t know what we’re going to do.
“I don’t know what I’m gonna do next with that show. I don’t know if I’ll accelerate another season or wait ’til next year to shoot this one.”
Unfortunately he won’t even be able to really figure things out again until the Coronavirus pandemic begins to clear up. As he explained:
“Until that day, everybody is kind of on pause,” he admitted. “I honestly don’t know. But it’s a great season and I know all the actors are chomping at the bit to get into it, so that’s all I know.”
It’s definitely disappointing because as stated above, the new season was already being teased. It was apparently going to have some kind of oceanic theme by the way the social media marketing was turning out. Hopefully things get figured out soon, and for the better.
