Ryan Murphy Reveals Three Leads for ‘American Horror Story’ Season 8!
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who have been seen in every season of the show, will return alongside Kathy Bates. The news comes after Kathy‘s Netflix series Disjointed was canceled.
“Kathy and Sarah Paulson have a lot of great stuff to get to do,” Ryan told EW. “So, with Evan Peters, the three of them are the leads this year.”
American Horror Story Could Be Going Radioactive
“[Season 8 of American Horror Story] takes place in the future… It’s still topical, but [set in] the future, which I’ve never done… I think people will like it. It’s different from what we’ve done before.”
American Horror Story’s eighth season isn’t set to debut until fall, but now fans think they may have discovered the title of the next installment of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series.
Last week, a Twitter account dedicated to American Horror Story news, @AHSLeaks, posted images revealing that Twentieth Century Fox has filed to trademark the title American Horror Story: Radioactive. The images included information that the title was being trademarked for both a television series as well as DVDs, CDs, downloadable audio, video and more.
“American Horror Story” co-creator Ryan Murphy confirmed that season 9 will feature the “Murder House” and “Coven” crossover.
Murphy decided to push the season 1 and season 3 crossover because the pivotal cast members are not yet available. However, Murphy is positive that the original cast members of “American Horror Story” will be able to return for the crossover season.
The showrunner added that it will take them a long time to write the crossover season because it involves so many of their cast members.
Murphy has now revealed to EW that his long-time star (and muse) Sarah Paulson would have a very specific look for this installment. “Sarah Paulson is very excited about the dental appliances she will be wearing on the show,” teases Murphy.
It’s unclear what sort of tooth horror Paulson will be facing but Murphy says next season will haunt viewers. “It’s set in the near future,” says the producer. “It has nothing to do with anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s really chilling.”
American Horror Story 8 will premiere on FX sometime in 2018.
“It takes place in the future,” Murphy revealed at the Television Critics Association’s press tour. “It’s still topical, but [set in] the future, which I’ve never done… I think people will like it. It’s different from what we’ve done before.”
