Season Eight Of American Horror Story Will Be Apocalyptic

Been many rumors floating around about the upcoming 8th season of American Horror Story.   We found out a week or so back that it will be a crossover season between the pilot season, Murder House and the very popular Coven season from a few years back.   What we didn’t know was – what was it all going to be about?   Got answers for you today.

Ryan Murphy – the series creator has confirmed – this falls season is American Horror Story – Apocalypse.

Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Kyle Allen, and Joan Collins will all lend their immeasurable talents and Murphy went on to explain the season just a bit:

You will see so many fan favorites return (this season) that you’ll feel like it’s The Love Boat. It’s a very high concept. 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.”

Given the nature of past seasons – the hook was pretty much a given, right?   But – I am curious to see what the hell this one is all about.   Wednesday, Sept. 12th is the big debut.   Check out the creepy cool teaser art!
