Update: We have an actual release date.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the Netflix release of last year’s season of American Horror Story. The second season of the popular FX series, titled Asylum, has been available on Netflix through its DVD service for over a month, but it has yet to join the first season in the streaming catalog.
We had speculated that Netflix might make Asylum available for streaming this month, as the first season became available in November of 2012. Netflix added last year’s season of Sons of Anarchy (another FX show) in October, a year after it added the previous season, so it seemed reasonable to expect similar treatment of American Horror Story.
It turns out that it’s taking a little longer with AHS. We’ve learned from a source familiar with Netflix’s release schedule that the season will be available sometime in December. We don’t know the specific date, but keep an eye on our weekly “New on Netflix” column over the coming weeks, as we’ll be sure to let you know when we do.
The third season, Coven, is already eight episodes in (the eighth debuts tonight), and has gotten a lot of people talking. I would imagine Netflix subscribers will be looking at another year before they get to watch that. Of course, if you can always find the episodes available for purchase online.
