American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy says the show’s upcoming eighth season will be a crossover of the Murder House and Coven seasons.
“The Coven/Murder House AHS crossover season won’t be happening next year…because it’s happening THIS YEAR,” Murphy tweeted Thursday. “AHS #8 WITCHES RULE THIS SEPTEMBER.”
The news comes just days after Murphy told Entertainment Weekly, “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 five.”
Murder House was the theme of the series’ first season and saw a family move into a haunted mansion in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, season three’s Covenstoryline followed a girl who is sent to a special academy in New Orleans after discovering she is a witch.
It was previously announced that series mainstays Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates will lead the eighth season.
