It is quite rare for horror TV shows to be blessed with a multiple season run. This is not the case for American Horror Story, which has proven to be the premier spook-provider in contemporary television. Since 2011 when it aired its first season, the AHS franchise has shown a lot of creepiness and has spread terror amongst its fans. From Murder House and Asylum to Apocalypse and 1984, we have been overwhelmed with its 9 seasons of breathtaking plots that featured cults, witches and other disturbing characters. And if you think that you have it all as a fan, you are surely wrong. American Horror Story makes its return for season 10 this 2020 and it also looks ahead with guaranteed multiple seasons afterward.

The soon-to-be-released new season will surely be another thriller to watch out for. Even before we went back in time for season 9, FX has already renewed the Ryan Murphy flagship series. This proves that American Horror Story is stacked up with more chilling episodes and more intriguing stories. If you have been missing AHS staples, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who were both absent during 1984, there have been hints of them coming back in future seasons although nothing is final as of the moment. Before the long lull preceding your next American Horror Story marathon, why don't you check out on other equally-disturbing horror content? In this list, we have some scary shows to watch while waiting for the next season of American Horror Story. It's not even near Halloween but you can just grab someone beside you and get ready for some scary viewing experience.
