How Many Episodes are in American Horror Story Season 11?

The arrival of Halloween only means one thing: there’s a new season of American Horror Story waiting in the wings. We confirm how many episodes there are in Season 11, highlight FX’s full release schedule and introduce you to the cast.

Season 11 is titled, NYC, and set in the titular city during the 1970s and 80s when a serial killer is stalking the LGBTQ+ community. It has not been confirmed if this season will connect to previous storylines. 

The television horror anthology began back in 2011 with Murder House and the series is helmed by co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuk. Each season is a self-contained miniseries that usually sees the return of the same roster of actors.
