American Horror Story: Double Feature is the new season of the hit series. On August 25, he reached his 10th season in the United States. In Spain, the series will be available on September 22 on Star and Disney +.
Ryan Murphy’s production has become a pop culture event and especially for fans of the genre. But beyond that, it is also a journey of enormous interest through the way in which the series has proven to reinvent itself. Even in his lowest and most criticized moments.
Season number ten of the show was confirmed even before its ninth, American Horror Story: 1984. The novelty makes clear the confidence of the FX channel in one of its most recognized series. That despite its ups and downs and criticized changes of pace and form.
For the tenth season, Ryan Murphy promises that he will not only explore new spaces in the genre, but also give the series a second wind. What can we expect from the episodes of one of the cult series on current television? Let’s take a tour of everything we know so far about American Horror Story: Double Feature.
How many episodes will ‘American Horror Story: Double Feature’ have?
Perhaps in a symbolic way to reach a representative number of seasons, there will be ten premiere episodes for American Horror Story: Double Feature. In fact, it is the average number of chapters in the series in recent years. Apocalypse and Roanoke, they had the same number. Instead, American Horror Story: 1984 only had nine.
What are the episode titles for the new season?
For now, the only names available for the new season of American Horror Story are from the first to the seventh. According to IMDb the titles would be:
Cape FearPaleThirstBlood BathGaslightWinter Kills Take Me To Your Leader
Of course, it is curious that the first chapter makes a reference, perhaps inadvertently, to Cape Fear, the 1991 film by Martin Scorsese. In it, a brutal Robert De Niro harasses the family of his former lawyer Nick Nolte. Could it have the same tone and perhaps context of the iconic film?
Also another theory that became popular on social networks is that Cape Fear was the place where the group of settlers heading Roanoke stopped. The data would include Double Feature in the universe of the series.
Who are the returning original cast members?
As usual, plot details and cast are the big questions of the season of American Horror Story: Double Feature. In February 2020, Ryan Murphy shared a short teaser on Instagram that showed several well-known faces returning to history. Most are recurring to the main cast. From Kathy Bates, Macaulay Culkin, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Sarah Paulson to Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe. It was also confirmed that Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock will be back alongside Frances Conroy.
However, the biggest point of attention remains the participation of former child star Macaulay Culkin. In fact, Murphy commented to E! News Culkin has a “very, very crazy part” that includes having “crazy erotic sex with Kathy Bates.”
Date of high on Disney Plus now and save thanks to the annual subscription, with which you can enjoy its entire catalog of series and movies, access to the latest releases, to the catalog of Star and the best National Geographic documentaries.
What story does ‘American Horror Story: Double Feature’ tell?
In order not to vary, Ryan Murphy kept the series plot secret for as long as possible. Finally, a few months ago, he declared that the season will tell “two terrifying stories: one by the sea and one by the sand.”
Little by little, the showrunner’s cryptic statements have made sense. In the successive teasers and trailers, everything seems to indicate that the plot will revolve around the sea and its horrors. But especially, the harassment that the married couple played by Finn Wittrock and Lily Rabe will suffer in a coastal city.
To make matters more complicated, Murphy told TV Guide about a possible story clue for season ten, which was included in season eight. According to Newsweek, it is a direct reference to an urban legend that will be developed in the new season of American Horror Story: Double Feature.
Of course, fans have also become obsessed with the possibility that as on other occasions there are some real cases in the series. A Reddit thread has explored the possibility that the plot is based on the unsolved case of Lady on the Dunes. In 1974 the body of an unidentified woman was discovered along the sand dunes of Massachusetts. Could it be part of the repertoire of horrors of the new season?
What is the connection to the rest of the seasons?
In April 2020, Ryan Murphy joked with fans by showing a photograph of the villain in latex from the first season on Instagram. As any fan of the series knows, the suit has had a long run through American Horror Story history.
In the first season it was worn by Tate Langdon. Later by Michael Langdon when he returned to the Murder House in Apocalypse. But actually, if we trace its convoluted history, we find that it was bought from an S&M store by the previous owner of Murder House, Chad Warwick. Quite a strange thread leading up to the current season of American Horror Story: Double Feature?
