American Horror Story Season 8 Theme

Ryan Murphy Confirms American Horror Story Season 8's Shocking — and Spooky — Theme

Over the past few months, American Horror Story fans have been busy theorising all the themes that Ryan Murphy's highly-anticipated eighth season might revolve around. Although "Radioactive" was a frontrunner, especially after Murphy teased the season would take place in "the future," the showrunner took the opportunity to throw loyal viewers yet another curve ball when he announced the real theme via Twitter on June 14.

"The Coven/Murder House AHS crossover season won't be happening next year," he tweeted. "Because it's happening THIS YEAR. AHS #8 WITCHES RULE THIS SEPTEMBER."

The exciting news comes hot on the heels of recent cast announcements, which confirmed that many of Murphy's series mainstays would be returning to lead the eighth season. Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates are all set to join, among others. Paulson played Billie Dean Howard in both the "Murder House" season and "Hotel," as well as Miss Robichaux's Academy headmistress Cordelia Foxx in "Coven." In "Murder House," Peters played murderous teen ghost Tate, and in "Coven" he appeared as Frankenstein-esque frat president Kyle Spencer. Bates played the terrifying Madame Delphine LaLaurie in "Coven."

There's still no word on how the two stories will collide, but you can bet that Murphy will figure out the most off-the-wall way to do it.
