According to Deadline, the poster touts a sharp-toothed mouth agape for what appears to be a tattoo artist’s pen. Upon the tongue, the artist has imprinted the signature AHS logo signifying the tenth season. Returning to film this month due to COIVD-19, the latest addition in the horror drama series is aimed for a 2021 release date. This May, Murphy alluded to the theme of the season with a cryptic image of a beachfront. Pairing the poster with the previous clue, one could assume this season will highlight a narrative around a sea creature or killer aquatic monster.
In the past, each AHS season has highlighted an array of horror themes and elements. From a haunted house occupied with the spirit of murder victims to witches and warlocks battling a satanic apocalypse. The latest iteration entitled AHS: 1984 paid homage to the 1980s slasher era, with a group of horny twenty-somethings being picked off at a summer camp.
According to Deadline, season ten will see the return of series regulars Sarah Paulson (Ratched, Run), Kathy Bates (Misery, Richard Jewell), Lily Rabe (The Undoing, AHS: Coven), Adina Porter (The 100, AHS: Roanoke), Angelica Ross (Pose, AHS:1984), Finn Wittrock (Unbroken, Judy), Billie Lourd (Booksmart, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), and Leslie Grossman (The Good Place, AHS: Cult). Original cast member Evan Peters (AHS: Murder House, X-Men: Apocalypse) will also return to the series, as he did not appear in season nine. The season ten cast will also see the addition of Macauly Culkin (Saved!, Party Monster) in a rare return to acting.
