Last month, American Horror Story fans were heartbroken when they learned that every season of the show was being pulled from Netflix.

But now they can breathe a sigh of relief because the entire back catalog of Ryan Murphy’s show will arrive on Disney+ on April 27, with the first eight series joining American Horror Story: 1984 and American Horror Story: Double Feature, which were already on the streaming site.

Disney+ and Netflix have been in fierce competition since the former launched in November 2019. Although Netflix is ​​still the biggest streaming site, with over 222 million subscribers, Disney+ is expected to catch up soon, with projections of reach 260 million subscribers by 2024. Currently, Disney+ has 84 million subscribers.

The relaunch of American Horror Story on Disney+ is part of an ambitious Disney+ release schedule that includes new series Moon Knight, Sketchbook and Scrat Tales launching this month. American Horror Story is produced by FX, which currently creates content for Hulu – and Hulu has been part-owned by The Walt Disney Company since 2009.
