American Horror Story: 1984 may have drawn to a bloody close, but if you haven’t got your fill of the horror series just yet, it’ll be back very soon. The show has already been confirmed for a tenth season—though in a recent chat with Deadline, co-creator Ryan Murphy teased that it could be the last.
“We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favourite actors to come back—because it might be our last season,” Murphy said. “It’s the last season we have contracted. So, I’ve been quietly reaching out to various people. Some people I haven’t reached out to yet because I was like ‘Do I have a role for them?’ So far, everybody I reached out to said ‘Yes’, so that’s been great.”
While Murphy didn’t give names, he did say that “the people who helped build this show into what it is” have shown interest in coming back. Specifically, he pointed to the show’s iconic first three seasons—Murder House, Asylum, and Coven—which suggests we might see the likes of Jessica Lange and Evan Peters returning.
After season 10, FX may decide to order more seasons. But even if they don’t, Murphy doesn’t intend to let the show go quietly.
“Would I call up Netflix?” he said. “Yes.”
