Ryan Murphy on AHS: I don't want blood with my Christmas ornaments

- Ryan Murphy moved the show up a month earlier, and shortened the season from 13 episodes to 10.

- His reason for an earlier, shortened season is simple: "Do I really want to be watching a horror show post-Thanksgiving when we get to Christmas? I really don’t... I really love it in the beginning when it’s fall, when it‘s Halloween and before Thanksgiving. And then after that, I just don‘t want blood with my Christmas ornaments."

- Explains that the old formula would always see a small holiday-haitus, slaughtering the momentum of the season. This year there will be no interruptions & Ryan promises "the show is done by Thanksgiving."

- Confirmed cast: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Finn Wittrock, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Dennis O'Hare, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson & Jacob Artist.
