8 years, 8 seasons, and 8 concepts later, the anthology series American Horror Story is still going strong to the delight of fans of the show across the globe. Season 8 of the series will be coming to Netflix, but the date will differ depending on where you live. Here’s a full breakdown of when to expect American Horror Story season 8 on Netflix.

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.

What is the plot of American Horror Story: Apocalypse?

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 are taking refuge in an underground bunker safe from the dangers of the outside world. Those in the bunker were a group specially selected due to their strong genetic makeup. The two leaders of the bunker rule with an iron fist torturing those that don’t follow their rules. In the shadows is the anti-christ Michael Langdon, that brings the bunker into chaos as he brings those he deems ‘worthy’ to the sanctuary.

While we will once again have a new set of characters entering the show, this will be the first season we see an official crossover story. Characters from Murder House (season 1) and Coven (season 3) will appear and rumored to also be appearing are characters from Hotel (season 5).


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. Typically, that’s just before the very next season airs so we’ll be expecting season 8 to drop around the same time in 2019. That means we can expect AHS: Apocalypse to be on Netflix in September/October 2019.

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


Release Schedule For Other Netflix Regions

The United Kingdom can also expect to get the new season in September or October 2019.

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

For Netflix Canada, the show is currently not streaming.
