Could Ryan Murphy‘s American Horror Story spinoff American Horror Stories revisit an old haunt?

In a newly-released promo poster and teaser trailer for the anthology series debuting Thursday, July 15 on FX on Hulu, a familiar house makes a prominent appearance alongside an iconic series costume donned by an unknown character.

It would seem that American Horror Stories is returning to the spot where it all began as Murder House makes an appearance alongside a rubber suit-wearing woman. And the teaser trailer, shared via Twitter also hints at other seasons of the original American Horror Story.

Horror comes home. #AmericanHorrorSummer kicks off with the premiere of American Horror Stories July 15 on #FXonHulu,” a tweet from the show’s account teased alongside the poster. The poster sees the figure walking through a red field of tall grass as the Murder House looms large in a stormy background.

The Twitter tease suggests that at least one installment from the new spinoff will be set at the haunting home which was the site of dozens of deaths. It’s unclear who is actually in the rubber suit, but as fans of the long-running original FX series would know, only men have worn the garment before.

Evan Peters‘ Tate Langdon and Cody Fern‘s Michael Langdon both wore the suit when it made appearances in Seasons 1 and 8. Could they be one of the male figures in the teaser trailer and other promo images? Either way, the rubber suit appears to be a recurring theme in this instance.

And it wouldn’t be shocking to see past plot points hinted at in this new series which will contain one haunting story per episode. As teased alongside the trailer, “Every episode brings you a different nightmare.”

No real details about American Horror Stories and its singular episode arcs have been divulged but Ryan Murphy did tease some of the stars who will make an appearance.
