Ryan Murphy dropped the bomb last week when he revealed that the forthcoming season of “American Horror Story” would be a crossover of season 1’s “Murder House” and season 3’s “Coven.” Confirmed to return are “American Horror Story” vets Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates. Now, Emma Roberts is teasing a return as “Coven’s” Madison Montgomery.
Roberts posted a short video on Instagram during Murphy’s latest series Pose saying, “Surprise bitch, bet you thought you’d seen the last of me.” As Deadline noted, based on the black dress and the condescending tone, it is pretty clear that she was in character as the shady, sharp-tongued starlet Madison.
Madison died not once, but twice during “Coven”, recalls the site. Jessica Lange’s Fiona slit her throat and she was resurrected by Misty Day (Lily Rabe). She died a second time when Kyle (Evan Peters) strangled her.
After Roberts posted the video, there was a Twitter exchange between her and Murphy where they joked about what her first lines would be. Murphy also responded to tweet asking if “Coven” actress Taissa Farmiga would be back for season 8 which he replied, “All the witches are being asked back.” The tweet has since been deleted.
