American Horror Story has shared its first teaser trailer ahead of its anticipated 11th season - and it looks like a club night could turn deadly.


In the clip, which AHS posted on its official Twitter account, club-goers party while dressed up in PVC and leather, some with handcuffs, while others dance in cages suspended above a dance floor. We then see a syringe filling a cocktail with a red liquid as it's announced: "The deadliest year yet. A season like no other."

The trailer also features a figure wearing a leather mask covered with silver studs and spikes across their body, much like the images of the characters recently shared on the American Horror Story posters. We also see a skull covered in studs and a reveller wearing a mask covered with long spikes.

AHS recently confirmed the theme and release date of the new season following months of fan theories and speculation, too. The latest in Ryan Murphy's horror anthology series will be set in New York City and will arrive in the US this October, which was confirmed by the show's official Twitter account.

"New Season. New City. New Fears. FX’s AHS:NYC premieres 10.19 on FX. Stream on Hulu," the caption read.

Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have yet to confirm whether they will appear in American Horror Story season 11.

The pair have each appeared in the majority of American Horror Story's seasons, each only missing one season: 1984.

However, Sarah Paulson suggested she may be taking a break from appearing in the series.

Speaking to Variety, Paulson said: "It’s not that I’m not open to it. I’m always open to it, but I feel like I’ve been doing it for a long time, and people might start getting sick of me in that world.

"Let someone else scream and run and cry for a second. Other people can do that too! Also, my nervous system. There was a time when I was younger when I was like, ‘I can do this all night. I love it!’ Now I’m like, ‘Momma’s tired!’"

Paulson is due to lead the second season of Ryan Murphy's Ratched for Netflix.

Meanwhile, there has been no word on Evan Peters's return but he is due to lead Ryan Murphy's 10-part Netflix true crime drama Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

Peters previously spoke out about the toll AHS had on him mentally, telling GQ back in 2018: "I'm goofy, I'm silly, I like to have fun. I don't like to yell and scream. I actually hate it. I think it's disgusting and really awful, and it's been a challenge for me. Horror Story sort of demanded that of me."

He added: "It's hurting my soul and Evan as a person. There's this massive amount of rage that's been called upon from me, and the emotional stuff that's been called on me for Pose has been heartbreaking, and I'm sick. I don't feel good."

Is there a trailer for American Horror Story season 11?

No, there is currently not a trailer for American Horror Story season 11. However, we will be sure to add a trailer as soon as this is available.

American Horror Story has confirmed that season 11 will be set in New York.

Meanwhile, Ryan Murphy noted back in 2018 that fans should expect a return for the witches who featured in the Coven, Hotel and Apocalypse seasons.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "The witches will be back. Not next season, but we have something really fun planned."

However, the lack of cast members from these seasons would suggest that perhaps this won't be the run we will see these characters back for.
