Ryan Murphy is teasing on Instagram that the creepy "American Horror Story" Season 1 character the so-called "Rubber Man" is making a return to the long-running FX anthology series.

Taking to the social media platform Sunday, the out writer/director/producer shared a photo of the said Rubber Man, who first showed up on "AHS: Murder House" back in 2011 and popped up a handful of times during the show's run. Murphy added the simple caption, "Coming soon," sparking many to believe the character will be appearing in the upcoming 10th installment of "AHS."

As Deadline notes, a number of "AHS" actors have worn the cursed/possessed rubber suit, including characters played by Dylan McDermott, Zachary Quinto, Cody Fern and Even Peters.

There's still not much known about the new season of "AHS" but Murphy previously revealed that "Home Alone" star Macaulay Culkin is joining the cast, along with series regulars Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Angelica Ross, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter and Peters. Both Paulson and Peters sat out "AHS: 1984" (Season 9) — the first time the actors have not appeared in the show.

Though the theme for "AHS" Season 10 has yet been revealed, Murphy recently teased a poster, which shows a pair of creepy hands holding on to some dirt with a grey ocean in the background. When he revealed the season's cast via an Instagram video, the clip also showed waves crashing on the ocean (he added the caption "Things are beginning to wash up on shore..."). Additionally, it was reported last month that Murphy and FX were scouting to film locations in the gay vacation destination of Provincetown, Mass.

Earlier this year, it was reported "AHS" was renewed for three more seasons. It's unclear if the coronavirus pandemic will impact filming for Season 10.
