The season ten production of FX’s American Horror Story has been temporarily shut down due to a positive COVID-19 test and potential exposure to the illness, according to Variety. Production of the series was previously halted in late 2020 due to the pandemic and began filming season ten in December with no other shutdowns.
American Horror Story serves as an anthology series by Ryan Murphy (Glee) with each season following a different set of characters and settings, yet occasionally the same actors. The first season, entitled Murder House, aired in 2011. The show’s tenth season, entitled Double Feature, is separated into two parts, with separate stories and casts. The season stars Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone), series regulars Sarah Paulson (Ratched) and Evan Peters (Mare of Easttown), Kathy Bates (Misery), Leslie Grossman (What I Like About You), Billie Lourd (Scream Queens), and Adina Porter (The 100). Part two of the series is in the process of filming. Season ten is expected to debut on August 25 at 10:00 p.m. on FX.
Similar to American Horror Story, filming of season two of Netflix’s Bridgerton was also halted due to two COVID cases in one week, leading to a production shutdown for an indefinite period of time. The former series recently debuted a spinoff series, American Horror Stories, which is available to watch on Hulu.
