‘American Horror Story’ Season 11 Title, Release Date and Cast Announced

Fans of “American Horror Story” can finally breathe a sigh of relief as details for the show’s eleventh season have finally been announced, including the title “American Horror Story: NYC.”

After months of fan speculation about the upcoming season’s theme, FX announced on Thursday that the season will be called “NYC” and will air on October 19.

Two episodes will air on the premiere date, with two episodes airing each Wednesday for the following four weeks. Episodes will be available to stream on Hulu the day after they air.

By the time season 11 begins, it will be a whole year since season 10 ended and fans of the show were running out of patience waiting for news about the new season.

Their patience had begun to run so thin that the owners of various social media fan accounts came together to issue a statement threatening to strike over the network’s withholding of information. Before Thursday’s announcement, the only information fans had was that season 11 was going to premiere in the fall.

Although little information is known about the new season in terms of storyline, the cast list has been released. Show veterans Joe Mantello, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Isaac Powell, Denis O’Hare, Patti LuPone and Zachary Quinto are set to return, along with new faces.

Newcomers include Sandra Bernhard and Charlie Carver, and while they’re new to “American Horror Story,” they’re not new to the Ryan Murphy universe. Bernhard worked with Murphy on “Pose”, while Carver worked with him on “Ratched” and “The Boys in the Band”.
