Nurse Ratched is coming. Ratched, the drama centered around the evil nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, is coming to Netflix on Sept. 18. Sarah Paulson stars as Mildred Ratched, accompanied by Cynthia Nixon, Sharon Stone, Judy Davis, Jon Jon Briones, Finn Wittrock, Charlie Carver, Corey Stoll, Vincent D'Onofrio and more.
Murphy had this to say about what the show was going to be: "The great thing about that show is that the first four seasons follow Sarah's origin story, like how did she become a Hannibal Lecter figure? What happened to her to make her do that? It's also a feminist tale, because it starts in 1947 and it looks at the birth of a lot of things that are happening in our healthcare system, and the last season of that show will be Sarah facing off against the Jack Nicholson character from [Cuckoo's Nest]."
Two words: Macaulay. Culkin. The Home Alone star is joining the cast for AHS season 10 alongside Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock. Production is currently delayed due to the pandemic, so season 10 will premiere in 2021 on FX.
Murphy's Netflix adaptation of the Broadway musical is his Christmas gift to us all. He posted a picture of the cast on Instagram on Aug. 31, writing, "Meet the incredible icon-packed cast of Netflix's The Prom. A group of true troopers who buckled up and finished shooting during COVID so we could give everybody an inspirational aspirational story that we all need right now. Christmas is right around the corner..."
The film adaptation stars Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Andrew Rannells and James Corden as theater actors who go to Indiana to help a teen whose prom was canceled when she tried to bring her girlfriend along. Kerry Washington, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key, Ariana Debose and Jo Ellen Pellman also star.
It's still happening! American Crime Story: Impeachment was set to start filming in March. It was already delayed due to Murphy being too busy, but then the pandemic delayed it even further.
Beanie Feldstein will star as Monica Lewinsky, with Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones and Clive Owen as Bill Clinton. Lewinsky herself is signed on as a producer. The show is based on Jeffrey Toobin's book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down A President.
Murphy is writing a mini-series for Billie Lourd, who starred in Scream Queens and multiple seasons of American Horror Story, though there haven't been any updates since October 2019 when he revealed the news to EW. "I love how unhinged and brilliant Billie Lourd is, she just keeps proving to me how talented she is. I've been so inspired by her performance, I'm writing a miniseries just for her! Top secret but it's gonna be my tribute to her talent," he said.
Ryan Murphy teased the spinoff series American Horror Stories with a fan-made photo on Instagram in May 2020 before FX officially announced the series later in the month, though few details on what the show actually is have been released.

Season two of The Politician hit Netflix in June 2020, and a third season hasn't been announced but Murphy has said that if we get one, it would come after a long hiatus (so star Ben Platt can age a little) and would feature his character running for President.
The award-winning FX drama exploring ballroom culture and the trans community is going into its third season, which is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
No longer happening! Sarah Paulson was supposed to star in a season of American Crime Story about a New Orleans hospital during Hurricane Katrina, but in Feb. 2019, FX boss John Landgraf confirmed the season was not going to happen.
The second season of Feud, which was going to focus on Prince Charles and Princess Diana's divorce, is not going forward. FX President John Landgraf revealed the news in Aug. 2018, saying that while it had already been cast, the material just wasn't right.
