Filming is beginning soon on this year’s eighth season of FX’s “American Horror Story,” which is set eighteen months in the future and will premiere this coming Fall.
Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Joan Collins, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman are set to star in the season, which *may* be titled “American Horror Story: Radioactive” and *may* take place after a nuclear blast. Those plot details, however, are mere rumors for now.
Ryan Murphy recently said of Season 8, “It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season. We’re sort of getting back to Asylum and Coven. It’s that tone. That’s the tone of it.” In a new chat with EW, Murphy teases more details about the season.
“You will see so many fan favorites return that you’ll feel like it’s The Love Boat,” teases Murphy. “It’s a very high concept.”
Murphy adds, “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.”
