Fans of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story anthology series are beyond excited for the premiere of the latest season. The eleventh season of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning franchise, AHS: NYC, premieres on October 19, 2022, following last year’s Double Feature.
AHS: NYC is shrouded in mystery. However, we know it follows a series of bizarre deaths and disappearances in New York City. On October 12, FX released a new teaser featuring classic AHS imagery: blinged-out S&M gear and a syringe injecting blood into an 80s cocktail.

FX announced a star-studded cast with Murphy favorites in the lead. The cast includes series mainstays Patti LuPone, Billie Lourd, Zachary Quinto, Sandra Bernhard, Denis O’Hare, and Isaac Powell. As well as Joe Mantello and Charlie Carver with Leslie Grossman and Russell Tovey joining in on the frightening fun.

What’s the theme of American Horror Story: NYC?
While FX and Murphy have been tight-lipped about all of the previous seasons of the long-running show, this season seems particularly mysterious. Since FX announced the season’s theme, AHS took to social media to share various images and cryptic messages. Very few details about AHS: NYC has been released over the last few months. However, the show’s social media channels have been very active and perhaps hold clues.
On October 12, the @AmericanHorrorStory Twitter account tweeted a video promising “a season like no other” with a caption that included the phrase “Let it consume you.” This led some fans to speculate that the new season could have a cannibalistic theme.
