‘American Horror Story’ Season 11 Cast Comes Into Focus – Deadline

During FX’s TCA executive session last week, chairman John Landgraf revealed that the upcoming Season 11 of the venerable anthology horror series will premiere this fall. This was the first piece of real information the network has provided about the new installment, the first of three picked up in 2020.

That is because of the mystery AHS Mastermind Ryan Murphy likes to surround each season with, carefully releasing orchestrated clues to build anticipation.
