Get ready for more wild scares. FX has announced the details for the third season of American Horror Stories, and once more, a thrilling and crazy ride to be had just in time for Halloween.

American Horror Story has been a massive hit for FX as each season has a different long-range storyline. The current season, titled Delicate, is about to wrap up the first half, with the second expected in 2024. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be more scares coming from the franchise.

FX released the trailer for season 2 of American Horror Stories, billed as a “Huluween” event, with all four episodes released on Thursday, Oct. 26. Unlike the main series, this spin-off tells stand-alone stories in each episode while still packing in the same wild thrills and wicked mix of dark humor and scares.

As usual, they utilize some familiar faces from the AHS franchise, with some newer stars taking part. So what’s on the menu for Season 3’s twisted tales?
