American Horror Story might be sticking around New Orleans.
"It's either going to shoot in New Orleans or it's going to shoot in Santa Fe," executive producer Ryan Murphy tells Entertainment Weekly of the fourth season, adding that it won't be a contemporary story.
Despite early talk that next season would be a spin-off of Coven, which tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America, Murphy said that project is now dead. "We were starting to break Episode 8 or 9 and we were like, 'Well, we can't kill that person off because we need them for the spin-off,'" Murphy said. "As soon as those words were said, I was like, 'There is no spin-off.' Because it took away from the joy of the show. The reason the show is successful is no one is safe ever."
Before Season 3 debuted, Murphy told reporters at a screening that he would drop more heavy-handed clues in the final episodes about the next story in the anthology series. EW reports that will begin happening around Episode 11.
American Horror Story airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX. Where do you think Season 4 should take place?
