American Horror Story: 1984 has just ended, but people are already looking forward to its next season. The ninth season lost a lot of its series regulars, including Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
According to the creator of AHS, Ryan Murphy, Season 10 could potentially be the final season for this FX show.
Speaking to Deadline, the showrunner revealed that the series is currently only "contracted" through next season, so they are treating it as if it could be the final one.
"We're working on an idea for Season 10 that I think people will love because it's about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back - because it might be our last season," Murphy said. "It's the last season we have contracted."

Murphy added that he has been quietly reaching out to people for possible castings. However, he has not reached out to everybody yet because he does not have a role for them.
Interetsingly though, Murphy emphasized that everybody he reached out to already said "yes."
While Murphy is not closing the door to continuing the franchise into 11th season and beyond, FX chairman John Landgraf is reportedly want them to keep it going.
Murphy said that they are in the middle of negotiations about beyond Season 10 and have had conversations about the show going 20 seasons.
Should FX opt against ordering the 11th season, he would absolutely "call up" his current bosses at Netflix to gauge their interest in acquiring the franchise.
Since AHS debuted in 2011, the series has aired a new season every year either in September or October. It is safe to say that the creator has plenty of time to dream up whatever horror nightmare scenario he plans to unleash in the 10th season.
People are already speculating what could happen for next year's new season, with an Episode 8 of 1984 including a significant clue about the upcoming one and what its overall theme could be.
So even if there is still no official date for the series to air or has been announced, that has not stopped fans from starting to theorize what it may entail.
Reddit user ohStephen said that Season 10 could involve urban legends given what the "reporter" Stacy discussed with Donna and Brooke on the November 6 episode.
"Back in the 70s, all anyone cared about was Bigfoot and aliens, the Loch Ness Monster," she said in one scene and later explaining that in the 80s, they are all about serial killers.
