First announced via show creator Ryan Murphy's Instagram last year, the wait is at last over for this spin-off of FX's hugely successful American Horror Story.

Read on to find out how to stream American Horror Stories and watch the new anthology series online from anywhere in the world.

With a new cast and a standalone plot for every tale, scant details have so far been released about what's in store beyond a hint of the terrors of episodes 1 and 2.

The first installment, "Rubber(wo)Man," promises a return to the Murder House of AHS season 1, telling the tale of a teenager Scarlett and her Dads Michael and Troy as they become the new tenants of a property with a decidedly dark past which starts to reveals itself as they begin renovating. Episode 2, meanwhile, is the similarly titled "Rubber(wo)Man Part Two," which promises to follow Scarlett as she embarks upon a twisted new romance.

Past American Horror Story stars Billie Lourd, Matt Bomer, John Carroll Lynch and Charles Melton are all set to make an appearance during the seven episode run, with Glee star Kevin McHale and Michael Jackson's daughter Paris among the new faces involved. Things look set to reach a sinister peak with the appearance of From Dusk till Dawn's Danny Trejo as a killer Santa Claus in a later episode.

This new anthology spin-off series is available exclusively to streaming service Hulu, with the first two episodes being available to stream from Thursday, July 15. Subsequent episodes will drop every Thursday from then on.

A basic Hulu subscription is priced at $5.99 a month and gives you access to thousands of movies and TV shows. If you're a student, it's $1.99 a month for the exact same content, but an even bigger saving comes for new subscribers who are entitled to a handy 30-day free Hulu trial.

How to watch American Horror Stories in Canada

While no broadcaster is currently confirmed for this new series in Canada, we'd place our money on an announcement that it will air much like the previous seasons of American Horror Story on FX Now.

Can I stream American Horror Stories in the UK?

Previous seasons of American Horror Story were shown in the UK first on Fox. Unfortunately that channel was recently taken off air, and there's sadly no word on where this new spin-off series will be available to watch in the region.

We'd hedge our bets that American Horror Stories will make its way to the Star portal as a Disney Plus exclusive at some point soon. Until then, a VPN could be something to consider.
