For now, American Horror Story fans will have to wait and see when FX decides to release season 10. According to Deadline, AHS: Double Feature is expected to drop sometime in 2021. But whenever the new season comes out, the cast has been announced for the first half.

Back in February 2020, Murphy shared the American Horror Story Season 10 cast list, which includes a number of returning actors. Angelica Ross, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Frances Conroy, and Finn Wittrock are all set to come back for the “sea” portion of AHS Season 10. Newcomers Macaulay Culkin and Kaia Gerber are also expected to join the American Horror Story family.

As Murphy mentioned, the cast for the second half has yet to be announced. So fans will have to wait and see what happens. But even so, a few AHS: Double Feature cast members have opened up about their characters, and there’s plenty to look forward to in the first half.

In an interview with Collider, Rabe suggested she is playing an entirely new character in American Horror Story Season 10. “I can say that the person I’m playing on this season is nothing like anyone I’ve played on the show before,” the actor said. “I love this season.”

Then when speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Paulson teased her upcoming role. The actor hinted that her character has a “great name” and a hair color she’s never had in the AHS universe or in real life. 

Wittrock also opened up about his new role on Double Feature in a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly. The actor noted that his character is the “most ‘normal’ person” he’s played within the franchise. “That’s not saying much,” Wittrock added.

Whatever happens when American Horror Story: Double Feature drops on FX, it certainly seems like we’re in for a treat. So stay tuned.
