Who are the cast members of American Horror Stories?
The six-time Emmy Awards winner's new TV show won't be airing on FX. Instead, it will be exclusive on the streaming platform, Hulu.
In a teaser trailer aimed to promote American Horror Stories, Murphy offered horror fans around the globe a glimpse of the A-list cast of the series.
Here's a complete list of all the confirmed cast members for American Horror Stories:

With a strong cast of characters that are filled with household names, Murphy's latest TV show is already off to a good start. American Horror Stories is guaranteed to draw in fans of American Horror Story. At the same time, Murphy was wise to pull in talent from previous shows like Glee and Pose, where he worked as the executive producer.
As a spin-off series, American Horror Stories' goal is to breathe new life into the decades-old franchise and bring in newer fans at the same time.
The decision to make American Horror Stories exclusive on Hulu was surprising, to say the least. However, it could pay off well for Murphy as streaming services are en vogue these days.
True to the adage that "you can't please everybody", fans were disappointed that American Horror Stories' cast didn't include Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters. But, don't worry. The pair are expected to appear in Double Feature, an upcoming episode during Season 10 of American Horror Story. In addition to this, Paulson is set to direct an episode of American Horror Stories herself, so maybe we might see Paulson make a cameo in American Horror Stories in the future?
While there remains a lot of uncertainty about just how large the cast of American Horror Stories is going to get, we do know one thing that's clear: the premiere date.
Eager fans can look forward to streaming Ryan Murphy's American Horror Stories through FX on Hulu starting July 15, 2021.
