When you see AHS:AHS on timeline, it’s not because Elon Musk and Grimes had another baby, it’s because Ryan Murphy cannot chill for even one minute. According to Deadline, Ryan is already promoting a new series called American Horror Stories which is a spinoff of his FX series American Horror Story: Julie Roberts’ Niece. This was all announced on Instagram Live by way of a show called American Horror Story: Pandemic which is just all of Ryan Murphy’s favorite actors trapped together on a never-ending Zoom call.
I am still trying to figure out if Hollywood is stupid on purpose or stupid on accident and here comes Ryan with his t-shirt cannon full of pilots pummeling me in the face with a size small. The fuck am I supposed to do with this? According to Deadline:
The American Horror Story franchise is expanding with a new anthology series spinoff, American Horror Stories. AHS co-creator/executive producer mentioned the new series in a social media post, noting that will feature one hour contained episodes.
Sources have described the new project as a companion anthology series to AHS where each episode is a standalone ghost story. Like the mothership series, American Horror Story is for FX, I hear. The series had been getting a lot of momentum just before the pandemic shut down Hollywood production in mid-March.
Here’s the announcement Ryan made on Instagram. You can see that Jessica Lange’s hair is thriving in quarantine while Julia Roberts’ Niece has to rely on beige drapes camouflage and a stoner beanie. Sad.

“American Horror Story” cast zoom call…where we reminisced about the good times…the spin off we're doing called "American Horror Stories" (one hour contained episodes)…when we will start filming the next season of the mothership…and other stuff I cannot print. It was so much fun and I'm glad we caught up. I miss everyone!
Do we really need to see Ryan’s exploration on what if Bigfoot was a twink? Maybe since Ryan’s already given us witches, serial killers, clowns, vampires, ghosts and Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, AHS: AHS will focus on more existential terrors like one episode about accidentally texting something to somebody you should have deleted from your phone a long time ago starring Sarah Paulson as The Ex you still stalk on Instagram to whom you now have to explain what you meant when you texted “be there in 10.”
