A new season of American Horror Stories is upon us, returning to FX on Hulu for season 2 on Thursday, July 21. American Horror Stories is a spinoff from Ryan Murphy’s long-running FX series American Horror Story. Instead of a different story being told each season, American Horror Stories is an episodic anthology series where each episode is a fully contained story, much like the Twilight Zone, Tales From the Darkside, and Tales From The Crypt.
Each episode features a different story and cast, although some familiar faces from the original American Horror Story are bound to appear. This season sees Denis O’Hare in the first episode, “Dollhouse,” and Gabourey Sidibe in the third. Episode five promises classic thrills, tackling the age-old horror story “Bloody Mary.” This season of American Horror Stories will consist of 8 one-hour episodes. Read on to learn how to watch.

Hulu offers several different monthly plans. All of them will allow you to watch the first season of American Horror Stories. The plans are listed below:
