How to watch American Horror Story: Double Feature in the UK

It's both good and bad news for UK viewers. The bad news is that you'll have to wait a while to be able to watch AHS: Double Feature on your TV screen.

The good news is that the entire season will be airing on Star on Disney+ in October 2021. The episodes will likely be released one at a time, once a week. There's no confirmed date for when it'll arrive on the streaming service just yet.

AHS: Double Feature plot: What is American Horror Story: Double Feature about?

AHS: Double Feature will consist of two different parts, with two different themes.

Part 1, titled 'Red Tide', will be set 'by the sea' in an isolated seaside community in Provincetown. The official synopsis reads: “A struggling writer, his pregnant wife, and their daughter move to an isolated beach town for the winter. Once they're settled in, the town’s true residents begin to make themselves known.”

In this half of the season, we've got Finn Wittrock and Lily Rabe as the leads, with Evan Peters and Frances Conroy filling in as the apparent villains of the story. Sarah Paulson also returns with another show-stopping character.

Part 2, titled 'Death Valley', will be set 'by the sand' and will likely feature aliens, extraterrestrial life and conspiracy theories, based on the teasers we've seen so far.

No synopsis has been released for this one yet, but a new trailer has given fans a glimpse at what to expect and teased at how the two seasons link.

Neal McDonough will be playing the real President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower comes into contact with extraterrestrial beings who want to negotiate with him. Classified US Army documents, including an x-ray for 'Earhart' – presumably American aviator Amelia Earhart – are also seen, as well as alien autopsies.

John Carroll Lynch, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Nico Greetham, Rachel Hilson, Rebecca Dayan, Kaia Gerber, Angelica Ross, Leslie Grossman and Cody Fern will appear in this half of the season.
