American Horror Story fans were expecting a crossover season at some point, but no one expected it as soon as this year! Ryan Murphy officially confirmed on Twitter that there will be an American Horror Story crossover season coming out this September combining two of the most popular seasons, Murder House and Coven.
Murphy did previously confirm that Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Kathy Bates will all be rejoining the cast for season 8. He even gave us a vague idea of who some of their characters may be, describing Peter’s character as a funny hair stylist whose grandmother will be played by Joan Collins. Murphy also said that the season takes place 18 months from now, but things are a bit confused with the confirmation of the crossover season.
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

Many fans are wondering, is the character that Murphy described for Peters in the crossover, or the season after it? When Murphy said it will take place 18 months from now, does that mean the crossover will be in the near future? Or was he talking about the season after this one? Will Sarah Paulson or Kathy Bates be reprising any of their roles? Will any of the old characters be coming back? In typical AHS fashion, the answers seem to only lead to more questions.
Details aside, what we know at this point is that the worlds of Murder House and Coven will be colliding in an American Horror Story crossover season this September, and we can’t wait to see the ghosts party with the witches.
