American Horror Story: New York City is starting to take shape. Following the news of actor Zachary Quinto being cast in the upcoming horror series, a new poster for the latest FX tale has been released. The poster shows Quinto’s Sam tangled up in a whip.

Zachary Quinto has appeared in seasons 1 and 2 of the FX series. Little is known about American Horror Story: New York besides its setting. Poster art so far for the season has featured men and women in leather outfits, skulls, and chains.

Along with Zachary Quinto, American Horror Story: New York stars Patti LuPone, Billie Lourd, Denis O’ Hare, Leslie Grossman, Sandra Bernhard, and Isaac Powel. The first ten episodes of the new season are set to air on October 19th on FX. Each new week will have two new episodes.

A creepy look of the 11th season was given to us on October 2nd. A poster featuring a woman with silver spikes protruding from her arms while bending in an unnatural, sexy pose confirmed the season’s official title. From the looks of it, it seems the latest horrific Zachary Quinto adventure will be quite the mind-bender.

It wasn’t long ago that AHS fans believed production of the 10th season was shut down due to the pandemic. That was later confirmed in an article from Deadline, which noted that someone on set of the tenth season tested positive for Covid-19. Variety later added that the person who tested positive was an actor on the series. The Zachary Quinto-led season comes after the AHS Double Feature.

News of AHS season 11 came from FX chairman John Landgraf during a Q&A session at the Television Critics Association’s press tour. Landgraf confirmed that unlike AHS Double Feature, the Zachary Quinto-led season would take place “in different timelines.” Details regarding the plot of the 11th season have been kept secret.
