Fans have gone wild speculating over AHS 10’s theme. The show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, just announced American Horror Story (AHS) will return in 2021 with season 10 and released a poster, which looks full of clues as to what AHS season 10 is about.

What is American Horror Story?

AHS is an anthology horror series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Each series follows a new story line, with a new theme and cast of characters.

Since the show’s release, many seasons have featured character crossovers and subtle links between storylines, hinting that the AHS universe may be a closed and tight-knit one, where everything fits together in the end. Previous season themes have been, in chronological order: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke, Cult, Apocalypse and 1984.

What is the next AHS theme?

Ryan Murphy just posted this teaser of the next season’s theme on his Twitter and Instagram:

Fans are going crazy trying to decipher what AHS season 10 is about. Some interesting guesses include mermaids, sirens and mythology:

Murphy also posted this Instagram picture months ago with the caption ‘American Horror Story. Clue’. This would seem to build on the idea of sea-dwelling creatures being a big part of this season.

It seems AHS season 10 may be about creatures from the deep washing up on shore and causing havoc.

Fangs are obviously a big part of vampiric mythology, too, but many fans feel this would be too obvious an idea for the new season. Besides, the concept of vampires, some feel, was already tackled in AHS Hotel, with Lady Gaga’s character.

 

Meanwhile, other fans have suggested the season could feature body modification as the poster contains a tattoo gun and sharpened teeth.

Ryan Murphy’s tweet was location tagged from Provincetown, Massachusetts, which could be another clue for fans to decipher. Provincetown is by the sea and was the site of the historical Mayflower’s landing in 1620.

When is AHS season 10 going to be released?

Murphy posted this image to his Instagram a couple of months ago confirming production on the next season should start in October, depending on covid developments.

Assuming everything goes to plan, season 10 is due for a 2021 release date. However, the exact date has yet to be confirmed.

Fan favourites such as Evan Peters, Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson are set to return in the tenth season of the hit show, while Home Alone’s Macaulay Culkin announced he will be joining the cast.

Expect more gore, more death and more gothic romance in a climactic tenth series.
