American Horror Stories season 3 teaser trailer previews four-episode Halloween event

American Horror Stories season 3 teaser trailer previews four-episode Halloween event

A teaser trailer for American Horror Stories season 3 has arrived online ahead of the show’s October Hulu premiere

American Horror Stories, a streaming series spin-off from FX’s long-running horror anthology series American Horror Story, began with a seven episode first season in 2021, and an eight episode second season followed in 2022. For the upcoming third season, the episode count has been shortened to just four – and all four episodes of American Horror Stories season 3 are set to drop on the Hulu streaming service on October 26th! With that date just three weeks away, a teaser trailer has arrived online to give a quick preview of the Halloween (or “Huluween”) event. You can watch it in the embed above.

Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck, the same duo that’s responsible for American Horror Story, this series is a weekly hourlong anthology that features a different horror story, some of which call back to the original series, in each contained episode. Obviously the “weekly” part of that description is being set aside for the new season.

Murphy and Falchuk serve as executive producers on American Horror Stories alongside Alexis Martin Woodall, Max Winkler, Jon Robin Baitz, and Dr. Giggles director Manny Coto, who sadly passed away back in July at the age of 62. The show is produced by 20th Television.

Very little information has been revealed about American Horror Stories season 3, but we do know that Lisa Rinna is in the cast of an episode called Tapeworm. Rinna is best known for playing the characters of Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives and Taylor McBride on Melrose Place… or at least she was, until she was featured on eight seasons of the reality series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Rinna is the only confirmed cast member. The cast of American Horror Stories season 2 included several actors who had history with the American Horror Story and/or American Horror Stories shows – Cody Fern (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Max Greenfield (Veronica Mars), Nico Greetham (Power Rangers Ninja Steel), Denis O’Hare (True Blood), Derrick Aguis (The Rookie), and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). This will also mark the Horror Story franchise debut of Dominique Jackson (Pose), Judith Light (Who’s the Boss?), Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), Bella Thorne (Amityville: The Awakening), Kristine Froseth (The Society), Raven Scott (Seven Days), Genevieve Aitken (Roman Empire), Kyla Drew Simmons (No Good Nick), Madison Iseman (the I Know What You Did Last Summer TV show), Cameron Cowperthwaite (Pledge), Maryssa Menendez (Minx), newcomer Sarah Silva, Kyanna Simone (Chambers), and Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild). We’ll have to wait and see if any of them ended up returning for American Horror Stories season 3.
