“American Horror Story” is set to make its grand return for season 11 on Oct. 19, and we finally have details on it. FX unveiled the season’s terrifying trailer on Oct. 6, just one week after it announced its title: “American Horror Story: NYC.” The show’s 42-second teaser clip cleared up the vague theme by teasing that “something evil is coming,” possibly to terrorize a nightclub in the big city.
While FX has yet to release a full-length trailer, much less a synopsis, with any more insight into season 11, TVLine reported that it may explore “several different time periods in New York City’s storied history with a specific focus on a group of queer characters.”
“American Horror Story”‘s upcoming season follows its 10th installment, titled “Double Feature,” which debuted in two parts last summer. “Part I: Red Tide” follows the story of a family’s move to a haunted, isolated beach town, while “Part 2: Death Valley” explores extraterrestrial life on Earth as an ode to 1950s sci-fi movies.
It’s unclear what exact terrors “AHS” has in store for New York City, but considering the show’s track record for incredibly grim plots, season 11 will surely leave viewers spooked. Read ahead for everything we know about season 11.

“American Horror Story” Season 11 Cast
The cast of the new season welcomes a mix of returning and newbie actors to the franchise — including Zachary Quinto from “AHS” seasons one and two, Sandra Bernhard from FX’s “Pose,” and Charlie Carver, who’s worked with series creator Ryan Murphy on previous projects, per TVLine. Rounding out the ensemble cast are Joe Mantello, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Isaac Powell, Denis O’Hare, and Patti LuPone.
“American Horror Story” fans may be saddened to see that series alum Sarah Paulson won’t be back for season 11, as she’s starred in every installment so far except the ninth. But according to Variety, Paulson seems fine with retiring from Murphy’s spooky anthology world. “It’s not that I’m not open to it. I’m always open to it, but I feel like I’ve been doing it for a long time, and people might start getting sick of me in that world,” she told the outlet of her potential return. “Let someone else scream and run and cry for a second. Other people can do that, too! Also, my nervous system. There was a time when I was younger when I was like, ‘I can do this all night. I love it!’ Now I’m like, ‘Momma’s tired!'”
“American Horror Story” Season 11 Release Date
