Will American Horror Story Season 10 be the final season?
Reaching 10 seasons is a huge milestone, but there's no end in sight for the beloved drama series.
The series has been renewed through Season 13 and could continue for as long as the creative forces behind it have compelling ideas.
Still, with 13 being an unlucky number, we can bet the series will hone in on that when it gets to that point.
Where is American Horror Story: Double Feature set?
Provincetown, Massachusets is the setting for the first six episodes of the season.
We know the final four episodes will be set "by the sand," according to Ryan Murphy, but a specific location has not been announced.
The good news is that the show is going for a much darker tone than before if these photos are to be believed, which can only mean good things.
The series works best when it embraces the darkness.
Is there a trailer?
Yes, and it's great.
FX officially dropped the trailer a few weeks ahead of launch, and it gave us our first taste of the eery new setting.
There are many words about how great things come at a cost, and this could harken back to our lead character, who is struggling with writer's block.
Is it possible he will accept something to help his cause and will have to pay something huge in the aftermath?
Check out the trailer below.
A trio of audio dramas have been released!
FX dropped a trio of audio dramas that gave fans their first taste of the season leading up to the premiere.
Split into three chapters, the three-to-eight-minute pieces follow an original character, Rose Flynn, as she hosts a nightly radio program from the fictional Provincetown public station KPCD 666.
Each "chapter" will feature clues, locations, and a few surprises from the first part of AHS: Double Feature. The programs will be available on American Horror Story's official channels on the social media channels for the show.
Will AHS Season 10 be connected to previous seasons?
The series has been known to have connective tissue between seasons, with many easter eggs.
Nothing has officially been confirmed, but many believe it will have some connections to American Horror Story: Asylum.
Alas, we'll need to tune in to find out!
When does it premiere?
American Horror Story: Double Feature launches August 25 on FX at 10/9c.
Two episodes will be available on premiere night.
One new episode will every week thereafter.
