This is the horror series’ eleventh installment in a long line of self-contained seasons that thrills viewers with its social analysis and eloquent storylines from the lunatic minds of conceiver Murphy and Brad Falchuk. As always, the series will have a fall premiere in October, ahead of Halloween, and the news comes with some crossing key art the show is infamous for.
The 10-episode Season 11 has just formally declared that the theme for its latest installment will be AHS: NYC, a new stomping ground for Murphy’s bleak universe. While not much is revealed about the plot at this time, a post to the official American Horror Story Twitter captions the artwork with “New Season. New City. New Fears.”

These all-new fears will be explored starting with the first two scenes, premiering on FX Wednesday, October 19, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. For the following four weeks, two episodes will air each Wednesday.
The concept art for the show is famously nightmarish and grand, with lurid colors and surreal imagery that evoke the themes of each season. This year’s images depict a BDSM-heavy motif, not unusual to Murphy’s previous work with latex, in a stark black, white, and silver color scheme.
One poster sees a woman bent back eerily, decked in fishnet tights and heels, and enclosed in silver pointed studs. The second poster is of an individual with their wrists bound in studded leather and their face covered by a very pagan mask of massive spiked antlers.
Creators Murphy and Falchuk serve as executive producers alongside Alexis Martin Woodall, John J. Gray, Manny Coto, Jennifer Salt, and Our Lady J. Disney’s 20th Television produces.
All 10 prior seasons of American Horror Story are available to stream on Hulu. AHS: NYC will air new episodes every Wednesday, starting October 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX, and stream the following day on Hulu. You can check out the trailer for AHS: Double Feature Season 10 below:
