Will American Horror Story Season 11 Be in Two Parts? 

FX chairman John Landgraf previously revealed that NYC won't be like Season 10, which was split into two stories: "Red Tide" and "Death Valley." The upcoming eleventh season will be a single story that takes place across different timelines.

"What I can tell you is that the concept of Season 11 is one story," Landgraf said. "It actually takes place in different timelines, but it's one subject, one story, with a beginning, middle and an end, like many of the prior stories. I think it was really good," he said. "I liked the two shorter stories format [of Season 10]. But I actually really like this idea, too. I think it's really cool."

Is Sarah Paulson in American Horror Story: New York City

Sarah Paulson, who has appeared in every season of American Horror Story except 1984 recently told Variety that while she's open to returning to the series, her time might be coming to an end.

"It's not that I'm not open to it," Paulson said. "I'm always open to it, but I feel like I've been doing it for a long time, and people might start getting sick of me in that world. Let someone else scream and run and cry for a second. Other people can do that too! Also, my nervous system. There was a time when I was younger when I was like, 'I can do this all night. I love it!' Now I'm like, 'Momma's tired!'"

American Horror Story: NYC will debut on FX on Wednesday October 19th.
