American Horror Story – Picture: FX

FX’s American Horror Story season 8 has long since finished on the channel but has yet to come to Netflix. Here’s a look at when season 8 of American Horror Story will be coming to Netflix around the world. 

American Horror Story: Apocalypse is the 8th season of FX’s famous anthology series. While some previous seasons haven’t been as strong as the initial first few seasons, that hasn’t stopped the hype surrounding the new season.

The new series is set in the near future. A nuclear blast wipes out most of the known world, settling in a dystopian nightmare that pushes humanity on the brink of extinction.

Meanwhile, on the west coast of the United States, a group of survivors is taking refuge in an underground bunker safe from the dangers of the outside world.

This will be the first season we see an official crossover story.


The series is notably produced by Ryan Murphy who is one of many who have exclusive output deals with Netflix. His other FX series also come to Netflix.

AHS Season 8 Netflix US Release Date

Despite the fact that most FX shows have left Netflix, American Horror Story has remained on the service. We’re expecting for it to remain for future years to come.

Like subsequent seasons, each new season of American Horror Story is released around September/October.

In late August 2019, it was confirmed that season 8 of American Horror Story is being added to Netflix on September 24th, 2019.

American Horror Story also releases on Hulu and Amazon Prime but like Netflix, they do not receive any weekly episodes and have to wait for the full season to finish before streaming the season.

AHS Season 8 Release Schedule For Other Netflix Regions

The United Kingdom is now confirmed to get season 8 of American Horror Story added to Netflix on September 13th, 2019.

Unfortunately for Australia, they’ll have to wait a little longer. February/March of 2019 is when they’re expecting season 7 so it won’t be until 2020 until season 8 arrives.

Other regions which should get AHS season 8 in the fall of 2019 include:

  • Mainland Europe (Germany, France, Switzerland, Spain etc)
  • Asia (Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore etc)

For Netflix Canada, the show is currently not streaming so therefore, we’re not expecting season 8 to join anytime soon.
