American Horror Story is an American horror television series created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Described as an anthology series, each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a disparate set of characters, settings, and a storyline with its own beginning, middle, and end. However, Murphy has stated that all of the seasons are and will be connected by the end of the series.

The first season, subtitled Murder House, takes place during 2011 in Los Angeles, California and centers on a family that moves into a house haunted by its deceased former occupants. The second season, subtitled Asylum, takes place during 1964 in Massachusetts and follows the stories of the inmates and staff of an institution for the criminally insane. The third season, subtitled Coven, takes place during 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana and follows a coven of witches who face off against those who wish to destroy them. The fourth season, subtitled Freak Show, takes place during 1952 in Jupiter, Florida and focuses on one of the last remaining freak shows in America and its struggle to survive. The fifth season, subtitled Hotel, takes place during 2015 in Los Angeles, California and centers on the unusual occurrences and people of a mysterious and outdated hotel. The sixth, subtitled Roanoke, takes place in 2015 on Roanoke Island in North Carolina, and follows a documentary of experiences endured by a couple and one of their relatives while living on Roanoke Island followed by reenactments, and, in 2016, follows the real experiences on the Island of the couple and the reenactors of the documentary.

For the forthcoming untitled seventh season, actors Billy Eichner,[1][2] Billie Lourd,[3][4] Leslie Grossman[5], Colton Haynes[6], Alison Pill[7] and Lena Dunham were cast in unspecified roles.

Although each season is set in a different time period, there have been characters who have appeared in multiple seasons. Billie Dean Howard (Sarah Paulson), Marcy (Christine Estabrook), Dr. Charles Montgomery (Matt Ross), Sister Mary Eunice McKee (Lily Rabe), Dr. Arthur Arden (James Cromwell as old Arden; John Cromwell as young Arden), Pepper (Naomi Grossman), Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) and Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) are the eight characters to appear in more than one season of the series. Sister Mary, Dr. Arden, and Pepper appear and reappear in Asylum and Freak Show. Billie, Marcy, and Dr. Montgomery make appearances in Murder House and Hotel. Queenie appears in both Coven and Hotel. Lana appears in Asylum and Roanoke. Murphy has stated that as the series progresses, more and more characters will be making a return to the show.
