Ryan Murphy Confirms ‘American Horror Story’ Season 8 Will Be ‘Murder House’/’Coven’ Crossover

The eight season of “American Horror Story” is going to be more insane than usual, as two previous installments collide!

Creator Ryan Murphy dropped a bombshell on Twitter Thursday afternoon, confirming that, “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 news comes after Murphy teased the forthcoming season with Entertainment Weekly for a recent cover story on his latest series, “Pose.” He told the magazine, “You will see so many fan favorites return that you’ll feel like it’s ‘The Love Boat.’ Its a very high concept.” He added that it’s “unlike anything we’ve done because there’s a big hook to it” and teased “a huge thing that happens” in the fifth episode.

In April, he also said that Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman will return, while Joan Collins will be joining the cast as Peters’ grandmother. At the time, however, he noted the crossover wasn’t next, so it’s unclear if this cast lineup sticks.

He also said the show would take place “18 months from today.”

The biggest questions we have: Where will the show take place and will Connie Britton or Jessica Lange return?

Britton’s been MIA from the series since its first season, while Lange was instrumental to both installments’ success. As for the location, “Murder House” went down in a haunted house in Los Angeles, while “Coven” brought the show to New Orleans.
