'AHS: Double Feature' & 'Murder House' Similarities Are A Plenty — Here's What We Spotted From The Trailer Alone

After a long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, American Horror Story is back with a brand-new trailer that may hint that the show is returning to its haunted house roots.

This year, the series is titled American Horror Story: Double Feature, with the first half of the season subtitled Red Tide and the second Death Valley. So far, we've only seen clips in the trailer from the earlier episodes of the season, which depict a family moving to a new house in what appears to be a sleepy seaside town. Of course, since this is American Horror Story, it's only a matter of time before things take a turn for the violent.

Replace a few key words in the above description, and you may think AHS is doing its first (and arguably still fan favorite) season Murder House. The first season, which kicked off the anthology series, followed the Harmon family as they began a new life in Los Angeles, unaware that their home is occupied by vengeful ghosts.

But it's more than just the surface description that makes me wonder if AHS is playing homage to its original installment — the seasons already have a few key elements that tie them together. Below are all the supernatural, spooky similarities.

Pregnancy

The new trailer features Lily Rabe as a heavily pregnant mom, who is married to a struggling writer, portrayed by Finn Wittrock. It seems like this pregnancy, coupled their move to the (definitely evil) seaside town is their fresh start.
