Horror heads, take note.

Ryan Murphy's hotly tipped American Horror Story spin-off just got given the go ahead by US channel FX, Variety reports.

The show will reportedly be a series of one-hour long ghost stories - with each episode covering a standalone plotline - rather than the traditional season format.


FX are said to have given the project the greenlight and will broadcast the spin off as part of their 2021 programming.

Given that all Hollywood production is currently on pause due to the coronavirus crisis, an air date has not yet been confirmed.

AHS co-creator and executive producer Murphy teased the news on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of a cast Zoom call.

"American Horror Story" cast zoom call..." he wrote. "Where we reminisced about the good times...the spin off we're doing called "American Horror Stories" (one hour contained episodes).

"When we will start filming the next season of the mothership...and other stuff I cannot print. It was so much fun and I'm glad we caught up. I miss everyone!"

Fans of the franchise naturally went wild.

"OMG ALL MY FAVES!" gushed one.

"SPIN OFF???" chimed in another.

A third asked: "Why are you playing with our feelings?"

With the spin off not yet in production, full details of the cast have yet to be announced.

Eric Schrier, Entertainment President at FX, said: "We couldn't be more excited about our roster of new and returning shows slated through next year.

"It has been an extraordinary time for FX over these past three months with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business. We believe the continued strength of our original series coupled with the growing awareness of FX on Hulu as our streaming platform will make the FX brand stronger and more relevant and accessible than ever before."
