After several delays, the FX anthology horror series “American Horror Story” kicked off production in Provincetown on Monday.
Season 10 of Ryan Murphy’s series, which will be filming under the code name “Pilgrim,” was originally assumed to be filmed in Provincetown in spring 2020, but has been rescheduled as a result of the coronavirus.
Town officials were only able to affirm Twentieth Century Fox Television is now filming a project called “Pilgrim,” but a source familiar with the production confirmed that the job is indeed “American Horror Story.”
Here’s everything you want to know about “American Horror Story” season 10, including filming locations, who’s at the cast, and concepts regarding what the show will be about.
Where and when will “American Horror Story” season 10 be filmed in Provincetown?
Based on Provincetown manager of tourism Anthony Fuccillo, the filming dates shifted numerous times, with Fox originally re-approaching Provincetown in November 2020, then submitting potential agreements to a movie from Jan. 25 to March 13. The changing schedule was because of cast availability, according to Fuccillo.
In the agreement examined by Boston.com, you will find 19 filming locations intended for the creation, with many backup locations appended too. Filming will be spread across Provincetown, with shoots on the east side near the intersection of Snail Road and Commercial Street; on the west side near Tremont and Commercial roads; and in the center of town close Standish and Gosnold streets.
Particular locations include Pilgrim Monument, Winthrop Street Cemetery, Mews Restaurant, and Racing Beach.
Filming for films and television has taken place in Provincetown several times over the seasons, most notably in 2019 for the Starz series “Hightown.”
“We think it’s great exposure for the city,” Fuccillo said. “It is good for the film industry to have a town like ours to utilize. It will bring additional business for the town, and is excellent for economic development, particularly this time of year.”
Who is in the cast of “American Horror Story” season 10?
Murphy and”AHS” co-creator Brad Falchuk (a Newton native) frequently reuse actors in a variety of seasons of”AHS,” and this period will not be any different.
