He wrote on Twitter:
“The Coven/Murder House AHS crossover season won’t be happening next year…because it’s happening THIS YEAR. AHS #8 WITCHES RULE THIS SEPTEMBER“
The first season of AHS (later titled Murder House) followed a family who moved into a haunted house in LA, and the third season, Coven, followed the murderous escapades of a group of witches in New Orleans.
It’s not known who all from the series 1 and 3 will appear in 8, but Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates, who appeared in both seasons, are back for sure. The theme for season 8 is still unknown, but it’s set in the near future and features the legendary Dame Joan Collins. (No word on Jessica Lange, but I say it has to be YES!)
Murphy teased in an interview with EW,
“It’s a very high concept. It’s a season unlike anything we’ve done because there’s a big hook to it. There’s a huge thing that happens in episode 5.“
American Horror Story season 8 will premiere on FX this fall. Stay tuned!
