American Horror Stories scares up 'the Fantastic Four' of stars for spin-off series
American Horror Stories (TV series)
UPDATE: FX announced that American Horror Stories will premiere the first two episodes this July 15 exclusively through FX on Hulu.
Dubbed "The Fantastic Four" in a post shared on Murphy's Instagram page on Thursday are Glee veteran Kevin McHale, Riverdale actor Charles Melton, Pose's Dyllón Burnside, and The Prom's Nico Greetham.
While American Horror Story is already an anthology series highlighting a different story and theme with each season — with the exception of the Coven-Apocalypse-Murder House crossover of season 8 — every episode of American Horror Stories will be standalone.
Season 1 will consist of 16 installments that will delve "into horror myths, legends and lore," according to a previous statement by Murphy. He added, "Many of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love."
Could Billie Lourd be one of them? Greetham tweeted early in the hours of Thursday morning that he had met the actress and she was "v funny, v kind, v lovely." It's possible he was just visiting the set of American Horror Story season 10, but it's something to think about.
Speaking of, American Horror Story season 10 has been dubbed Double Feature and will be split in half between two stories. In addition to Lourd, Sarah Paulson, Macaulay Culkin, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock star in that arc.
Further story specifics for American Horror Stories have not been revealed.
