Missed Opportunity: All-Black Women-Led 'American Horror Story' Season

"American Horror Story" has been a cultural staple for 11 seasons, consistently reimagining horror with a dedicated fanbase.

Despite featuring notable Black actors, the show has never had a Black lead character in its 11-year run.

Angelica Ross, an actress from Murphy's productions, highlighted issues of performative inclusiveness and lack of protection for Black individuals in the industry.

Ross revealed emails from Ryan Murphy expressing interest in an all-Black women-led season of "AHS," but no progress was made.

Ross missed opportunities elsewhere due to contractual obligations with FX and Murphy's productions.

Ryan Murphy, who champions representation, appeared to use the idea for performative allyship, raising questions about his commitment.

The missed opportunity for an all-Black women-led horror season reflects ongoing limitations in representation within the entertainment industry.
