While fans knew that Apocalypse promised some Coven/Murder House crossover elements, the Coven witches ended surprisingly ended up being core element the entire season, which ultimately did a lot of catch up with the fan favorite characters (including rescuing quite a few of them from hell or hell-adjacent existences.) Is Murphy planning to continue his apocalyptic saga with the witches and the new Antichrist, or will he spin the ladies of Miss Robichaux's in a new direction entirely?
"The witches will be back", the AHS creator told Entertainment Tonight during his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
Most of the regular American Horror Story cast members returned for the show's eighth season, including Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Lily Rabe, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks; as well as franchise newcomers Joan Collins and Cody Fern. "I can't say what it is", he said. "Not next season, but we have something really fun planned".
The Emmy, Golden Globe and AFI Award-winning series from co-creators Murphy and Brad Falchuk aired its seventh season on FX past year.
As for next year's Season 9, Murphy said he does have a storyline already planned out, but "can't say what it is", since he hadn't yet told his reliable troupe of actors about it.
How would you want the witches to return to the world of American Horror Story? "I'm going to this luncheon, and numerous Horror Story actors are there, and I'm gonna tell them for the first time". "So I have to tell them first". American Horror Story was renewed for two more seasons back in the fall of 2018, carrying it through to season 10.
