Meet Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and others from American Horror Story Double Feature
‘American Horror Story’ is back with another season and set to scare the hell out of everyone with spooky characters and a bone-chilling storyline. The plotline for the entire season, titled ‘Double Feature’, has been kept under wraps, but the makers have come out with a synopsis for the season premiere of ‘Red Tide’ and it reads, “The first part focuses on a struggling writer, his pregnant wife, and their daughter after they move to an isolated beach town for the winter. As they settle in, the town’s true residents begin to make themselves known.”
Ryan Murphy will be once again overlooking the project as the creators. He has been really lucky for FX and has produced superb shows such as ‘The Politician’ and ‘Pose’ for the network.
‘AHS: Double Feature’ features a stellar cast and some old characters are also returning for the show’s tenth edition. Take a look at the cast.
