'American Horror Story' Season 8 To Be 'Murder House' and Coven' Crossover

'American Horror Story' Season 8 To Be 'Murder House' and Coven' Crossover

American Horror Story fans should probably start to get ready for something a bit special. According to the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy the eighth season of the show will be a crossover between the first season - known as 'Murder House' - and the third season, 'Coven'.

He announced the exciting news with a tweet that read: "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,"

So, there you have it. Two of the most popular seasons combine to bring something that Murphy says will be their most ambitious yet.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy said: "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."

As for the cast, it looks like much of the mainstay team will be sticking around, but we could also expect some surprises too. That means we will see old hands Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, and Billie Lourd return as well as newcomers like Joan Collins make their AHS debut.

Murphy continued: "You will see so many fan favourites return that you'll feel like it's The Love Boat, it's very high concept."

Oh, if you've never heard of The Love Boat - which you probably haven't unless you're over a certain age and grew up in the USA - it was a popular comedy show about a cruise ship that ran from 1977 to 1986 and had a cast that also had a pretty high turnover. Riveting stuff, you'll surely agree.

But let's get back to the real news here.

The first season of American Horror Story, 'Murder House' told the story of an American family moving into a haunted house in Los Angeles, California.

As you will already know (or could have guessed) loads of terrifying supernatural happenings begin. It would take a long time to explain, and you've probably seen it anyway.

The third series focused on the descendants of the Salem witch trials attempting to hide themselves amongst ordinary humans. One young witch discovers her true identity and is sent to a boarding school exclusively for witches. If you think you've heard this one before, this is nothing like Harry Potter.

It's not entirely clear how the mash-up between the two seasons is going to go down, but it is almost certain to be gory, and bloody exciting.
