American Horror Story Season 10 has been confirmed back in August 2018, ahead of the 8th season premiere. The decision on renewal has been announced by FX Networks CEO John Landgraf in an exclusive interview with DeadLine. The current, ninth installment of AHS is coming to an end November 20, 2019. But already now you may breathe a sigh of relief since another round of the horror anthology is confirmed officially. Nonetheless, those of us who adore the show so much are no doubt wondering whether Season 10 of AHS will be the show's last?
No exact words have been said on the subject so far. Landgraf said that he has no idea about the further plans of Ryan Murphy, especially, given his recent deal with Netflix. However, in our opinion, Landgraf has been a bit tricky since the decision on renewal mostly depends on the network itself. But still, we have to come to terms with the fact that the future of American Horror Story after Season 10 is unclear.
By the way, we want you to bear in mind that Landgraf has confirmed that Ryan Murphy asked him about American Horror Story Season 10, and he has noted that "which we were happy to give to him." So, even despite FX's boss was about to provide an opportunity for Murphy to produce AHS Season 10, there has been no exact announcement of it so far.
It's worth mentioning that the current, 9th season of AHS kicked off not so bad. American Horror Story Season 10 premiere has garnered 2,126 million viewers with a 1.00 key demo among adults (P18-49). A sad fact, but during the season premiere, AHS lost more than a third of the target audience (-31.00%) versus Season 8. But still, the viewing figures look steady even despite such a noticeable drop.
In our opinion, the most valuable indicator is the reception, which the ninth season has received from critics and viewers since this factor, as a rule, positively affects the future of the series. And we see that American Horror Story Season 9 has received critical acclaim, given the statistics provided by Rotten Tomatoes. According to their metrics, AHS Season 9 holds a score of 8.33/10 and a 94% approval rating from critics, while viewers have given a score of 4 out of 5 to the current installment of the horror anthology, with a 77% approval rating. On Metacritic, the viewers' consensus was also favorable, with a score of 6.2/10. At the same time, an overall score of AHS on IMDb is still very high, 8.1/10 based on over 254,000 votes.
Summing up, if the viewing audience of AHS doesn't drop below the mark of 1.5 million viewers during the tenth season premiere and a response from critics and viewers remains excellent, we have every reason to believe that American Horror Story won't end with Season 10, and FX will be forced to renew the horror anthology for at least one more season. Are we wrong or not, we will see. We are tracking down all the official news about AHS, which arrive from FX. Once the cable network clarifies the situation, we will update this page.
American Horror Story Season 10 Release Date
As mentioned above, AHS Season 10 is confirmed (or, at least, in the cards), what has been officially confirmed by FX's boss John Landgraf. But no specific release date has been announced for Season 10 as of yet. But you nonetheless, no doubt want to know when American Horror Story is coming back for Season 10. Well, in fact, it's not so difficult to predict. The first thing which is clear is that AHS Season 10 should premiere next fall, what follows from the current schedule of the series. And since all the previous seasons were released between September and October, we have every reason to believe that American Horror Story Season 10 is set to premiere in September-October 2020.
But still, please take into account that the data above is nothing but our forecast. Of course, we are looking forward to the official announcement from FX. Nonetheless, we almost sure that FX isn't going to change anything in the network's programming slate dramatically. As soon as FX reveals a specific release date for American Horror Story Season 10, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed. And once we have any reliable data on the subject of AHS Season 11, we will publish them here as well.
