In a moody, cloud-shrouded video set to the song “Dead of Night” by Orville Peck (watch it below), Murphy announced Macaulay Culkin is among the new cast members. He joins AHS veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who are returning for Season 10 after missing the ninth installment, along with Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock.
Paulson sat out American Horror Story: 1984 as she was busy with Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series Ratched as well as FX’s limited series Mrs. America.
In January, Disney-owned FX renewed the series for three more seasons, through season 13.
Each season has explored a different horror theme and setting, ranging from a haunted house, insane asylum, witches coven and traveling freak show to a hotel with a dark and murderous history. Creators Murphy and Brad Falchuk have not yet divulged the theme or setting for Season 10 but in an interview with Deadline last year, Murphy teased a few ideas. He admitted that he was keen to bring back some “fan-favorite” actors and admitted flirting with aliens and space. “I think that at the heart of it, it’s always about Americana,” he added.
Over its nine-season run, the series has been nominated for 95 Emmy Awards and won 16.
