Just one tease this week wasn’t enough!

Just yesterday (11 November), Ryan Murphy was teasing us by sharing new artwork for the upcoming American Horror Story season 10, and now he’s truly set the internet ablaze with this teaser for American Horror Stories.

The spin-off was first teased by Murphy in a fan-made Zoom chat with American Horror Story veterans such as Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Emma Roberts.

And now Murphy has shared the first poster for the highly anticipated spin-off series, which features a mannequin with its face partially smashed, leaving only the lips intact, while a black widow spider weaves an intricate web inside.


Murphy also announced the idea of the spin-off, explaining: “It’s the AHS spin off. We are doing 16 one hour stand alone episodes delving into horror myths, legends and lore…many of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love. More to follow…”

It’s safe to say that fans went wild, with one writing: “2 SERVES IN A WEEK?!? THE GAYS HAVE WON.”

And another added: “Stop it, I’m gonna die and it’s gonna be on you.”

On Instagram, Murphy shared a teaser poster for the upcoming American Horror Story season 10 which features a mouth full of fangs, while a hand in what appears to be some form of surgical glove holding a tattoo gun hovers over.

Plenty of theories have been floating around about what it means, with a hot favourite being mermaids, and we know that the season had to be filmed during the warmer months, perhaps because so many people had to be in the water. It could fit in with a previous teaser that Murphy shared back in March, which featured two arms emerging from the water.

The 10th season of the critically-acclaimed horror anthology series will see the return of fan-favourite actors such as Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman and Angelica Ross.

After sitting out 1984 to pursue other endeavours, American Horror Story veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters return in leading roles. Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin has also been cast, making it his first series regular role on television.
