Everything We Know About ‘American Horror Story’ Season 8
Be afraid, be very afraid. American Horror Story is returning for an eighth season, and if it’s anything like co-creator Ryan Murphy’s past projects, then it’s going to be good.
It’s been four months since the show’s seventh season, AHS: Cult, ended its 11-episode run on FX, and the network is already teasing the next installment. Although we don’t know too much about the franchise’s new venture, here’s everything we’ve discovered about the eighth season of American Horror Story.
What’s it called?
FX hasn’t announced the official title yet, but American Horror Story: Radioactive has reportedly been trademarked by the network.
What’s the theme?
While we don’t know exactly what it’s about, Murphy previously hinted that it may be his most bizarre idea to date.
He said, “I told [FX CEO John Landgraf] and he fell out of his chair with joy. I think people will like it; it’s different from what we’ve done before, but I always try and do the opposite of what I’ve done on that show.”
When will it take place?
Unlike previous seasons, the eighth series won’t take place in the past or the present. Instead, it will be set in the future, which is a first for Murphy. Dun dun dun.
Who's in it?
Thus far, AHS alums Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates are confirmed to appear in season eight.
When will it premiere?
No official date has been announced, but it is expected to return sometime in September. Gulp.
