The FX on Hulu series made its debut in 2021, and follows the anthology format of the original show, though this time each episode tells a different story rather than a whole season.
American Horror Stories brings over a number of cast members from the original show, including Matt Bomer, Celia Finkelstein, Naomi Grossman, John Carroll Lynch, Charles Melton and Billie Lourd.
NME‘s two-star review of the show’s first season said: “All the teenage characters speak in ‘90s Scream-style film literate discussions about the gimmicks of horror director William Castle et al, and there’s a cute nod to Tipper Gore’s ’80s censorship campaign.
“That said, it turns into a straightforward zombie escape film with a clunky script. At times, it feels like somebody has yelled ‘exposition!’ five times in the mirror as a character pops up to deathlessly regale the plot at you.”
As well as American Horror Stories, creator Ryan Murphy was previously confirmed to be creating two new anthology spin-offs in the franchise – American Sports Story and American Love Story.
