Tonight is the Penultimate Episode Before Next Week’s Season 9 Finale
Season 9 will be the shortest American Horror Story season yet after it was cut back to just 9 episodes on October 17, according to TV Guide. 1984 was originally slated for 10 episodes, which would have made it equal in length to Roanoke and Apocalypse. The first five seasons of American Horror Story were either 12 or 13 episodes long, while Cult was 11. It’s unclear at this time why the season is so much shorter than the others.
With episode 8 premiering tonight, fans have the finale to look forward to next week. The synopsis for episode 9, titled “Final Girl,” reads, “Camp Redwood draws in a lost soul looking for closure.”
Showrunner and creator Ryan Murphy is already brainstorming different ideas for season 10, which was renewed earlier this year. Murphy also noted that the show could go on indefinitely, as long as he remained interested in it, so fans might have another dozen or so seasons to look forward to.
“I think it can go for as long as I can live and breathe and continue to be interested in it, and as long as John [Landgraf] wants to keep making it,” he told Hollywood Life. “And I think he has a passion for it. It’s been the number one show on that network since 2011, the year premiered. It’s still kicking.”
Tonight’s episode airs at 10/9c on FX. Tune in next Wednesday, November 13, at the same time to catch the finale episode of American Horror Story: 1984. In the meantime, check out a few of our favorite fan theories here.
