According to a report by, 'Sirens' were the majestic creatures in Greek mythology that used to lure the sailors to their demise by singing beautiful, melodious songs. The songs were used to crash the ship of the sailors among the rocky shores. Fans of the show have seen many storylines that are related to a deadly virus or diseases but themes related to Sirens have never been explored before.  

The season 10 of American Horror Story is all set to debut this year and a spin-off title is also in the works. It could be possible that the themes selected for the current voting post will be eliminated and would form a part of the larger universe of the spin-off show or an unannounced project. Season 10 of the show will premiere on FX.

In November 2020, Ryan Murphy took to his Twitter account to give some hints about the future of the franchise. In a tweet, he wrote, "It's the AHS spin off. We are doing 16 one hour stand-alone episodes delving into horror myths, legends and lore...many of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love. More to follow...".
