A successful spin-off of American Horror Story, will we see the scarier anthology series in American Horror Stories season 2?
As an anthology horror series, this TV show consists of different stories each episode. Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, American Horror Stories premiered on July 15, 2021, on FX on Hulu. Besides, you can also watch the show by streaming it on Disney+.
The first season of American Horror Stories consists of seven episodes, with the duration of around 38 to 49 minutes each episode. The show still have the elements from its original TV show like the storyline as well as the cast.
Executively produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Alexis Martin Woodall, John J. Gray, and Manny Coto, and produced by 20th Television, American Horror Stories is such a massive hit among horror freak and American Horror Story franchise biggest fans.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t really get positive reviews from some platforms. It receives 6.1 out of 10 scores from IMDB. On the other hand, Rotten Tomatoes gives the show 54% critics’ review and 37% audience score. Well, that’s such a bummer.
For me personally, American Horror Stories is better or at least same as good as American Horror Story. Some of the stories are actually creepy, and the best thing is that they are just short stories so the story is not really dragging out—the thing that we usually see in American Horror Story.
The biggest weakness of American Horror Story in my opinion is that one season is sometimes too long that makes it less scary. The last season is even divided into two parts, and it was such a failure. So different stories in each episode can be the right solution for it to keep its horror alive.
So after the first season, when will we get to see American Horror Stories season 2?
When Will We See American Horror Stories Season 2?
Even before the tenth season of American Horror Story was out, FX has renewed American Horror Stories season 2, given the success of the first season.
FX has confirmed that American Horror Stories season 2 will be out in 2022, although they haven’t announced the exact release date. Since the first season was released around summer, we can predict that the second season will be out around the same time of the year as well.
However, since Ryan Murphy is also working on another two projects, American Sports Story and American Love Story, American Horror Stories might get delayed, but hopefully not.
American Horror Stories Season 2: The Plot
There hasn’t been any official announcement regarding American Horror Stories season 2. But while the first season much focuses on the story of Murder House, the second season will also retell us the story in 10 seasons of American Horror Story.
We may revisit the Asylum or Hotel, meet the group of the Freak Show or Coven or Cult, or even bring back Camp Redwood in 1984. Anything is possible—and of course interesting.
But we cannot really know for sure the story for the rest of the episodes, at least until we get more hint—or Ryan Murphy’s poll—regarding the theme of American Horror Stories season 2.
Who Will Appear in American Horror Stories Season 2?
Surprisingly, in the first season of American Horror Stories, we can see some of the legends from American Horror Story. That includes John Carroll Lynch, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, and others.
With that, we can expect to see another main roles from American Horror Story to appear in American Horror Stories season 2 as well. So possibly we will see Madison Bailey, Ronen Rubinstein, Kaia Gerber, Paris Jackson, Aaron Tveit, Danny Trejo, and many others.
The iconic Sarah Paulson is not likely to appear in American Horror Stories season 2. However, since she is already much involved in behind the screen of another Ryan Murphy’s projects, it is possible for her to be involved in the spin-off episodes as well.
