Ryan Murphy is not well-know for taking breaks. At any given time, the writer/producer/director has multiple projects in the works and the current quarantine due to Covid-19 is no exception.
He currently has two new documentaries on Netflix. A Secret Love chronicles the 65 year long relationship of a lesbian couple that began in 1947, and Circus of Books dives into the history of one of LA’s oldest gay adult bookstores. He also has a brand new, splashy series titled Hollywood set to debut on the streaming platform on Friday, May 1, 2020.
Fans of Murphy’s muse Sarah Paulson can also look forward to their series, Ratched, based on the chilling character Nurse Ratched from the classic One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. That project is complete and is still set for its September premiere.
Unfortunately, not all of Murphy’s ongoing projects are certain.
Murphy told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview that both American Horror Story and American Crime Story are waiting for the restrictions to lift before they begin shooting. Both were slated to start on the first full week of April, and the delay in filming will almost inevitably cause a delay in their release dates.
“I’m interested in how are we going to go back to shooting?” Murphy told the publication. “How is that going to work?”
It’s a rather vague answer at best, but it’s exactly the kind of answer Murphy is known for giving.
Despite delays, Murphy has teased certain elements of the new season of American Horror Story with Instagram videos. Most recently, he teased the return of Rubber Man who was first seen in the premiere season of the show American Horror Story: Murder House.
While a release date is tenuous, be sure that Ryan Murphy will make it happen!
