Things We Saw Today: American Horror Story‘s 10th Season Will Be a ‘Double Feature’

Plus Zack Snyder, Tenet, and more!

At long last, Ryan Murphy has announced the title for the 10th season of his FX juggernaut series American Horror Story. Say hello to American Horror Story: Double Feature! Murphy made the announcement on social media, along with the requisite teaser, which reveals that Double Feature will contain “two horrifying stories … one season. One by the sea … one by the sand.”

The teaser was accompanied by waves on a beach, and the requisite creepy score. But what does “Double Feature” mean exactly? Will the series be split into two separate stories? Or, more likely, will it be a single story told from two different view points? Murphy did something like that in season 6, AHS: Roanoke, with the first half of the season filmed as the paranormal documentary re-enactment My Roanoke Nightmare, and the second half filmed as found footage from the documentary’s sequel.

The result was a polarizing season, with fans either loving or hating it. For many AHS diehards, Roanoke is a mixed bag. I’m, as always, excited to see what Murphy and company have in store for Double Feature. Last season’s AHS: 1984, which aired in 2019, was a darkly comedic take on the classic 80s slasher genre. Who knows what season 10 has in store?

All I know is, when I hear the phrase “Double Feature”, my mind immediately goes here:
