The new season of 'American Horror Story' will be split into two parts - here's what we know about 'Double Feature'
"American Horror Story: Double Feature" premieres Wednesday, August 25 on FX and Hulu.
The tenth season of the show will be split into two separate storylines - one is set near the beach.
"AHS" mainstays Lily Rabe, Finn Wittrock, Sarah Paulson, and more will star in the new season.
True to its "Double Feature" title, the new season will feature two distinct storylines.
In March, series creator Ryan Murphy announced that the title of the tenth season of "American Horror Story" would be "Double Feature," leading to rampant fan speculation about how the show would incorporate this unique theme.
Murphy has continued sharing glimpses of the new season on his Instagram, and eventually revealed that the first part of "Double Feature" would take place in Provincetown, Massachusetts. He also teased the appearance of both sirens and aliens in the new season.
And FX chairman John Landgraf recently confirmed to Deadline that the first six episodes of season 10 will focus on one storyline, while the remaining four will follow another.
Per Deadline, the first part of the season is called "Red Tide," and is set by the ocean, while the second part is called "Death Valley," and will be set somewhere in the desert.
Fans can expect to see series mainstays like Evan Peters and Frances Conroy, as well as a few new faces.
The recent trailer for the new season teased the involvement of "AHS" favorites Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Frances Conroy in the "Red Tide" episodes, although it's possible they could play multiple characters or make an appearance in the second storyline as well.
Wittrock plays a struggling writer who moves to Provincetown with his wife (Rabe) and daughter, but soon encounters two mysterious locals (Peters and Conroy).
Macaulay Culkin also makes an appearance in the trailer, although it's unclear who his character is. It's similarly unclear who Paulson is playing, but she looks scary and barely recognizable.
The trailer gives more clues about the first part of the season.
Based on the recent trailer and the earlier teaser (and, well, the whole premise of the series), it's clear that something terrible is going on in Murphy's version of Provincetown.
Humanoid creatures, a rogue scientist, and plenty of disembodied limbs all make appearances in the latest trailer, while the teaser suggests underwater horrors await anyone who ventures into the ocean.
The second half of the season is still under wraps, but a desert setting and lots of aliens seem to be involved.
"American Horror Story: Double Feature" premieres Wednesday, August 25.
The episodes will air on FX, and be available to stream on Hulu the next day.
And Deadline recently reported that the season finale is set to air on October 27 — just a few days before Halloween.
