Season 8 of American Horror Story will be a crossover between the show’s first season, Murder House and the third season, Coven.
The first season saw a family move into a haunted mansion in Los Angeles, while the third season followed a girl who is sent to a special academy in New Orleans after discovering she is a witch.
Ryan Murphy recently tweeted, “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.”
Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates will lead the eighth season of the series -no word on whether the crossover will mean a return by Jessica Lange.
Foxtel is yet to screen Season 7 Cult in Australia despite announcing a Showcase “Super-channel” in March.
American Horror Story: Cult is a dark, satirical, horror-infused vision of American politics and society set in modern day Michigan. Based on the 2016 US election, the 11-episodes in Cult are more “grounded” meaning there are no supernatural elements as there have been in previous seasons. American Horror Story: Cult is a parody of Trump and Clinton supporters alike but there are also killer clowns who start picking off neighbours leaving behind bloody smiley faces and fear that leads to chaos. Starring series alumni Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Cheyenne Jackson, alongside Billie Lourd, Alison Pill, Billy Eichner, and Leslie Grossman.
