What did creator Ryan Murphy share about the new series?

The picture, shared today (Wednesday, November 11), shows mouth with red lipstick and sharp teeth.

Next to it, a hand holds a tattoo gun. The needle is visible, dripping black ink, and the mouth’s tongue has ‘AHS10’ and ‘FX’ – the channel it airs on – tattooed on it.

What have American Horror Story fans said about series 10?

In the comments, a number of viewers likened the fangs to shark’s teeth.

It got fans wondering if the theme could be mermaids or sirens.

Sirens are mythical creatures that use their singing to lure unwary sailors into the sea where they would drown. They also cause ships to hit rocks.

In the replies, one follower said excitedly: “Mermaidsssss!”

Another speculated: “Something underwater @MsKathyBates plays the queen of sirens.”

A third agreed, writing simply: “Sirens.”

My good sis Kathy Bates AND Sarah Paulson are back.

Another wondered if it might be vampires, given the sharp teeth, but another insisted it would be sirens.

Others, meanwhile, could hardly contain their excitement, as one simply responded: “OMG.”

“I can’t freaking wait,” said another with a string of heart-eye emojis.

Someone else said: “My good sis Kathy Bates AND Sarah Paulson are back for #AHS10. I am ready.”
