From American Horror Story to American Horror Series.
Ryan Murphy, the creator behind the anthology series, is planning to tell more horror stories in a spinoff that he announced via Instagram.
He described the new anthology series “American Horror Stories,” as a “one hour contained” series.
While details aren’t aplenty, it seems as though its an extension of the world he’s already built with each episode serving as a standalone story and featuring familiar faces from the FX show.
Some of those cast members signing onto the project are likely Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Katy Bates, who were all on-hand for the Zoom meeting discussion to announce the project.

“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!
With AHS renewed for three more seasons, Murphy has a lot of his plate, and fans are still anticipating the 10th season of the series.
The Wrap reported that Murphy’s theme for season 10 may be scrapped as filming was very “weather-dependent,” and never got to happen since the coronavirus pandemic shut down production.
“Well I don’t know, because a lot of what I was going to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment, it was a weather-dependent show. So now I don’t know. I don’t know what we’re going to do. I don’t know what I’m gonna do next with that show. I don’t know if I’ll accelerate another season or wait till next year to shoot this one,” he revealed.
So, as you see, the fate of season 10 is very much murky and floating into the unknown. However, we have absolutely no worries because there’s bound to be some deeply terrifying ideas in Murphy’s mind to replace the current theme that’ll shake us to the core.
And, we always have his spinoff series to look forward to!

‘The 100’ Showrunner Jason Rothenberg on Fan ‘Expectations’ and ‘Surprise Guests’ Ahead of Series Finale
It all comes to an end this Wednesday, September 30.
This may be a relief for some The 100 fans who have been less-than impressed with the show’s direction in the final season.
Showrunner Jason Rothenberg spoke to TVLine about what he hopes that final hour-long episode accomplishes especially after the penultimate episode left many questions that needed to be addressed and much to be desired.
“We’re going to try and wrap up as many things as we can,” he said. “It’s a finale — and it’s a series finale on top of that — so there will be some surprise guests. Fans can have expectations of a certain scope and scale that I feel we’ve always been able to achieve in these finales.”
The final episode also marks his directional debut.
“This was a difficult season, because we also made a pilot within the season in the middle of everything,” he explained. “And because we shot the pilot so late in the season, I went right from being on the set of the prequel to prepping the finale. … It was definitely a challenge, but I’m glad I did it. I kind of wish I’d done it earlier, so I could have four or five [episodes] under my belt now, but it would have been a regret had I not.”
He even explained that the final scene from the penultimate episode, which saw Clarke deciding to relieve Madi of her pain and suffering, was intended to kickoff the series finale.
“I actually wrote and directed that scene,” he said, adding, “But the finale was too long, so I had to put it at the end of the previous episode. That episode originally ended prior to Clarke making the decision to euthanize her child, so there was going to be a little more time — at least in the audience’s mind — before she got to that decision.”
Rothenberg seems to believe that he’s achieved what he intended for the finale and even promises some “surprise guests.”
“If the finale gets a little trippy, as seems pretty likely if Clarke and Co. are in for a test on top of the war, then all bets could be off and we could see the returns of some dearly (or not-so-dearly) departed characters,” he said.
Here’s the official synopsis for the series finale: “After all the fighting and loss, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and her friends have reached the final battle. But is humanity worthy of something greater?”
‘Chicago Med’ Shuts Down Production for 2 Weeks After Crew Member Tests Positive for COVID
COVID has hit Chicago Med.
While many medical dramas are incorporating the very real pandemic into their upcoming storylines, the NBC drama set in Chicago has to deal with the effects of COVID in real life.
Deadline reports that production on the NBC medical drama has been shut down for two full weeks after a production team member was tested positive for the novel virus.
The team member was allegedly sent home immediately following the positive result and the series decided to pause production out of an abundance of caution.
This is reportedly the second member in the department to test positive.
Chicago Med began filming last week ahead of its season 6 premiere, which is set for Wednesday, November 11 along with sister shows, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, which are said to begin production next month.
It’s unclear if this will affect the premiere date for the series.
