The producer of fan favorite anthology series American Horror Story has revealed some really interesting new details about the upcoming installment! Ryan Murphy took to social media earlier today to tweet about season eight.
The information Murphy shared with his followers is that the next season is going to be a crossover between two very loved previous ones – Murder House and Coven!
As you probably already know, Murder House was the very first installment, and it aired on FX back in 2011.
It stars: Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Dermot Mulroney and Connie Britton.
Meanwhile, Coven, which aired two years later, also starred Peters and Farmiga in addition to Denis O’Hare, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson.
‘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,’ Murphy wrote.
The producer had already revealed that Peters, Bates, and Paulson would be back for season eight.
It’s definitely going to be interesting considering some of the actors starred in both seasons as different characters.
Farmiga played Billie Dean Howard in Murder House and Cordelia Foxx in Coven.
Meanwhile, Peters was Tate Langdon in Murder House, and portrayed Kyle Spencer in Coven.
Other actors that will be part of season eight are Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, and Joan Collins.
Apparently, Joan Collins joined the series after a casual discussion between her and Murphy during an Oscars after-party.
‘We were at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, and we turned around, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s Joan Collins.’ He grabbed me by the hand and off we went,’ Paulson previously told ET. ‘The deal was made on that floor. It’s amazing.’
