Ryan Murphy said, "We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back — because it might be our last season."
'American Horror Story' has been on the air for almost a decade now. The hit horror anthology series first debuted on the FX channel back in 2011 with their amazing first season 'Murder House'.
The latest installment of AHS, '1984' just aired its finale and fans of the show are already eager for the tenth season.

To date, we have no idea about what the tenth season is going to be about, but series co-creator Ryan Murphy has already hinted that season 10 is going to be a must-watch for all the long-time fans of the season.
During an interview with Deadline, Murphy revealed that the tenth season of American Horror Story might be the final one.

Murphy said, "We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back — because it might be our last season. It’s the last season we have contracted. So, I’ve been quietly reaching out to various people. Some people I haven’t reached out to yet because I was like ‘Do I have a role for them?’ So far, everybody, I reached out to said ‘Yes,’ so that’s been great.”

This might make a lot of fans think that Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, or Kathy Bates are going to make a comeback, but Murphy is keeping all these details a secret.
He said, "Too soon to tell, but I’ll just sort of say, the people who helped build this show into what it is, who believed in it from the beginning, have been contacted and are interested. So if you look at the iconography of the first three seasons, you can figure [out] who I’ve gone to and who might be coming back. … I’m excited about season 10 like I was excited about this year. I worked really hard on it. It was deeply embedded in my childhood and in Brad [Falchuck]‘s.”
When asked about the theme for the tenth season, Murphy said they are working on an idea and theme of season 10 and there is a focus on bringing the OG cast back.
He said, "I already came up with an idea for season 10. We flirted with aliens, we flirted with space, we flirted with some things that were more interesting than others. I think that at the heart of it, it’s always about Americana. … It’s always a mysterious process of how I come up with the idea. I really don’t even understand it. I have a list of finalists on a piece of paper and I work on all of them. It’s just where is my life when I’m working on them.”

When asked about the future of the show, Murphy revealed that neither him nor FX Chairman John Landgraf are completely ready to bid goodbye to the series.
He concluded saying, "He would obviously like to keep it going, and I’d like to keep it going. We’re in the middle of negotiations about beyond season 10. We have had conversations about the show going 20 seasons. If John for some reason said, ‘We don’t want to make this anymore,’ would I call up Netflix? Yes. But he’s only ever expressed love and enthusiasm and he wants to keep it going. We’re both very proud of it. I have every good intention of it staying there and I think he does too. We’re talking about it. We’re trying to figure it out.”
