American Horror Story fans are in for a treat, as it looks like season 9 of the terrifying show is finally coming to Netflix in November this year.

Ryan Murphy’s popular horror anthology series has gained a legion of loyal followers around the world, with each season focusing on a different twisted scenario; from haunted houses to traveling freak shows and even the literal end of the world.

The most recent season, American Horror Story: 1984, followed a group of teenagers who become camp counselors for the summer, only to find themselves fighting for survival against a notorious serial killer called Mr Jingles who’s earned a reputation for chopping off his victims’ ears.

It marked a return to more straightforward, classic horror ideas, taking cues from iconic slasher franchises like Halloween and Friday the 13th, and won plenty of praise from viewers and critics alike.

1984 was also notable for being the first season of American Horror Story to not feature fan favorites Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson, although it did introduce us to newcomers like Glee’s Matthew Morrison and Pose star Angelica Ross who helped make the season a standout.

When is American Horror Story: 1984 coming to Netflix?

If you’ve been waiting for season 9 of American Horror Story to hit Netflix so you can binge watch (or re-watch), you’re in luck, as What’s On Netflix have reported that it will be arriving on Friday 13 November, 2020.

While it may not arrive on our screens in time for Halloween, there are other seasons of American Horror Story available to watch on Netflix – we’d recommend Asylum and Roanoke if you’re looking for genuine scares – as well as these great horror movies and TV shows.

When is American Horror Story season 10 coming out?

Fans were disappointed to learn that there will be no new season of American Horror Story in 2020 due to the ongoing global health crisis, and it’s fair to say that spooky season feels pretty empty without it.

Fortunately, creator Ryan Murphy confirmed production is scheduled to start in October, and that leaves us hopeful that we’ll get a glimpse at season 10 soon. Whether it will air earlier in 2021, or we’ll have to wait for the usual September/October premiere date, remains to be seen.

The Mandalorian theory may uncover surprising new fate for Baby Yoda

A fan theory questions what will happen to Baby Yoda once he is united with Ahsoka Tano and whether that will mean the end of his adventures with The Mandalorian.

Over the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, fans have followed Din Djarin as he tried to find a home for The Child aka Baby Yoda, and reunite him with his people.

He’s still yet to succeed in this quest, but seems to be edging closer as we reach Chapter 13 of the show.

Will Din Djarin leave The Child with Ahsoka Tano?

What will happen to Baby Yoda?

With so much of The Mandalorian heavily revolving around The Child – and him immediately becoming a fan-favorite among viewers – it begs the question of what will happen to him once his home is found.

One Reddit user (TheMediocreCritic), thinks they have worked out The Child’s fate, especially once he comes face-to-face with the famous Ahsoka Tano.

“Ahsoka will advise Mando to run and raise the child as his own lest it is used by others to fulfill misunderstood prophecies or for the designs of people who would use the child’s gifts for evil,” they said.

“[She] will subtly tell the story of her former master and how he was used by both religions of the force and manipulated because of his gifts until he was a twisted shadow of himself.”

With Tano no longer claiming to be a Jedi, she has a much more balanced perspective of the force, her previous experience – as seen in The Clone Wars and Rebel – showing how both sides can be just as dangerous.

This is what makes this theory so feasible and could easily be the direction the show decides to go in.

The clan of two could soon be back to one

If this weren’t enough, Din Djarin’s growing bond with Baby Yoda, becoming both a father figure and a clan of two, means it would inevitably be hard for him to leave The Child after so long.

However, some people in the comments are more hesitant to accept this theory, worrying that the show could lose direction and lead to there being nothing else to tell, aside from the adventures of Din Djarin and Baby Yoda.

This could be the case, but there’s potential for it to be made into a bigger arc, following Tano trying to train The Child throughout Season 3, before making this decision.

There is, of course, another huge storyline at work now, after Chapter 12’s revelations led to fans already theorizing that Moff Gideon could have a surprising secret and that the latest revelation could tie in with Snoke.

With more questions around Gideon’s experiments and the darksaber rising, there’s plenty of content that can still be covered in coming seasons of the show, while ensuring The Child is in the best place for the future, so fans won’t be disappointed.

New episodes of The Mandalorian are available to stream every Friday on Disney Plus.
