American Horror Story fans were surprised earlier today on Twitter when creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the confirmation that Season 8 will crossover into previous seasons.
“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,” Murphy tweeted.

Ryan Murphy refers to AHS Season 3 “Coven” and Season 1 “Murder House.”
Murphy also confirmed in the above tweet that American Horror Story Season 8 will premiere in September and not in October, which is normally when new seasons of AHS debut (“Roanoke” and “Cult” premiered in September as well).
Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman and Billie Lourd and newcomer Joan Collins are confirmed for American Horror Story Season 8. Interestingly enough, certain actors played different parts in both seasons, so it remains to be seen how everything plays out.
American Horror Story Season 8 is rumored to be titled “Radioactive,” and it also starts filming June 16.
