Isaac Powell and Charlie Carver kiss on the NYC set of FX’s American Horror Story season 11

Production officially began on the 11th season of FX’s American Horror Story in Manhattan’s West Village on Monday as Isaac Powell and Charlie Carver were spotted kissing on the set.

The 27-year-old Grammy nominee portrays the character of Theo while the 34-year-old SAG Award nominee plays the role of Adam in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s horror anthology series.

Season 11 is clearly set in the late seventies based on the costumes – and Isaac certainly showcased his chiseled chest, six-pack abs, and bulging biceps wearing a retro vest.

Action, indeed! Production officially began on the 11th season of FX’s American Horror Story in Manhattan’s West Village on Monday as Isaac Powell (L) and Charlie Carver (R) were spotted kissing on the set

In the street scene, Theo convinced Adam to visit a psychic after they enjoyed ice-cream cones.

Powell is best known for his work in Broadway musicals like West Side Story, while Carver (born Martensen) and his identical twin Max recently appeared in The Batman.

Also on the set on Monday was legendary comedian Sandra Bernhard, who was filmed carrying a bag of groceries past a fruit and vegetable stand.

The 67-year-old actress-singer – who used to be best friends with Madonna – wore a patterned blouse tucked into black jeans and boots with a brown purse sling over her shoulder.

Sandra will likely be playing the psychic reader that Theo and Adam visit as she was also filmed emerging from the cellar business.

Last year, Bernhard concluded her recurring role as Nurse Judy Kubrak in FX’s Pose – which was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals.

Back in 2018, the former fashionista guest-starred as Satanic cult leader Hannah in one episode of the eighth season of American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

Meanwhile, Isaac played Troy Lord/Theo in four episodes of American Horror Story: Double Feature last year.

And Charlie played Huck Finnigan, an orderly turned head nurse at Lucia State Hospital, in Netflix’s 2020 series Ratched developed by Ryan Murphy.

Rumor has it that the 11th season will take place in and around the Midtown Manhattan disco club Studio 54, which was only open for three years (1977-1980).

Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager – who served 13 months in prison for tax evasion – owned the celeb-packed hotspot famed for its restrictive door policy, rampant drug use, and sexual activity.

According to IMDb – season 11 premieres October 17 and the first three episode titles are ‘Something’s Coming,’ ‘Thank You For Your Service,’ and ‘Smoke Signals.’ 

The 11th season ensemble reportedly includes Patti LuPone, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Joe Mantello, Lee Aaron Rosen, Rebecca Dayan, Nico Greetham, and Russell Tovey.

But don’t expect an appearance from Emmy winner Sarah Paulson, who appeared in nine of the previous 10 seasons of American Horror Story.

‘It’s not that I’m not open to it. I’m always open to it, but I feel like I’ve been doing it for a long time, and people might start getting sick of me in that world,’ the 47-year-old Ryan Murphy favorite told Variety on August 2.

‘Let someone else scream and run and cry for a second. Other people can do that too! Also, my nervous system. There was a time when I was younger when I was like, “I can do this all night. I love it!” Now I’m like, “Momma’s tired!”‘
