He added, “It’s still topical, but [set in] the future, which I’ve never done… I think people will like it.”
Today brings some more details, relayed to EW by Murphy himself. For starters, Murphy has confirmed that Sarah Paulson will once again return for the eighth season.
“Sarah Paulson is very excited about the dental appliances she will be wearing on the show,” Murphy told the site, teasing an appearance change for Paulson.

“It’s set in the near future,” he told EW. “It has nothing to do with anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s really chilling.”
