The teaser for the kinky horror drama, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, didn’t give much insight into the premise of the show, but features a shot of a subway in the city’s brat-infested underground. The trailer for AHS promises it will be “the deadliest year,” which is appropriate given the rising crime rate in New York City and the increase in subway horrors.

The official description for the show says “mysterious deaths and disappearances ramp up in the city” in the new season. “Meanwhile, a doctor makes a frightening discovery, and a local reporter becomes tomorrow’s headline.”

The first two episodes of the 10-episode season of “AHS:NYC” will premiere on FX Oct. 19 at 10 p.m., and will stream on Hulu the following day. In the subsequent weeks, two episodes will air each Wednesday.
