One new addition to the forthcoming season is actor Macaulay Culkin. Speaking about the role to E! last year, the show's creator described it as a "very great insane part" that the Home Alone star was immediately on board with. According to Ryan, after he pitched the part, Macaulay replied: "This sounds like the role I was born to play".

When will American Horror Story season ten be released?

While production on season ten was due to begin over a year ago, the cast and crew only began shooting in October of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. It's not known whether filming has wrapped yet. Given that the cast have been sharing snaps from set as recently as this month, we think perhaps not.

As for when the series will land on FX for US viewers and Netflix from UK fans, we've got our fingers crossed for the Autumn! Previous seasons of the show have been released in the weeks leading up to Halloween and it seems likely that season ten could follow suit.
