AHS Double Feature Production Shut Down Due To COVID-19 - Report

The upcoming season of American Horror Story has been shut down due to a COVID-19 scare.


American Horror Story has given fans 10 seasons of bizarre horror and grisly crimes, but an actual frightening scenario happened on set recently. Variety is reporting that AHS: Double Feature has halted all production because an actor had tested positive for COVID-19 and will be shut down until the end of the week.

The pandemic had already delayed production on the new AHS season which was originally planned for a 2020 premiere. Double Feature eventually began shooting in December 2020 and this was the first shut down of production.

The cast of this season, set to feature two separate storylines, is exponentially bigger that includes AHS veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters as well as Denis O’Hare, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Finn Wittrock, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, and Leslie Grossman It will also feature newcomers to the franchise Macaulay Culkin and Neal McDonough.

News of the shutdown comes amid a rise in COVID-19 cases and the new indoor mask mandate "regardless of vaccination status" being instated and carried out by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health last week.

AHS: Double Feature is set to premiere next month, August 25 at on FX.
