There's good news for fans of 'American Horror Story.' Come July 15, a spin off of 'American Horror Story', called 'American Horror Stories' will premiere and will feature 16 one hour-long contained episodes.

While fans may or may not see Sarah Paulson make an appearance, they can expect her presence behind the camera since Paulson said in an interview that she will be directing an episode. She said in an earlier interview, “I don’t know if I’m going to be in it, but I do think I’m going to be directing it." The series also stars a whole host of other talent including former 'Glee' star Kevin McHale, Riverdale actor Charles Melton, a star of Netflix’s 'The Prom' Nico Greetham, and 'Pose' star Dyllón Burnside.

How to watch 

Viewers will need a Hulu account to catch the series which is billed as an FX Original on Hulu. A monthly subscription of Hulu starts at $5.99 a month. 



'American Horror Stories' will have a different format than its predecessor 'American Horror Story'. Each of the 16 episodes will be formatted as a stand alone ghost story. But as long as it gives viewers goosebumps, new format or not, we're sure no one is complaining. Also if anyone can make a hit out of horror, its the series creator Ryan Murphy.
