Kathy Bates, a longtime “American Horror Story” staple, was not involved in last year’s “American Horror Story: Cult,” but she’s coming back for this year’s Season 8. Additionally, Ryan Murphy has revealed that a returning Evan Peters will co-star alongside both Bates and the previously announced Sarah Paulson.
“Kathy and Sarah Paulson have a lot of great stuff to get to do,” Murphy told EW today. “So, with Evan Peters, the three of them are the leads this year.”
Murphy also addressed the recent rumors that the near future-set Season 8, which doesn’t yet have a confirmed theme, will be titled “American Horror Story: Radioactive.”
“I heard about that rumor,” he told EW. “Well, that’s based on a fact that we’ve cleared a lot of titles for that show. It’s an interesting idea. I can neither confirm nor deny.”
Look for “AHS” to return to FX this coming Fall.
