American Horror Story has gone in some wild instructions over time, starting from placing a twist on the basic haunted home story to including a spin of homicide and mayhem to present occasions. There have been witches and murderers and cults. As of the end of Season 7, it was was tough to think about what might probably be in retailer within the subsequent chapter of the anthology sequence. Now, American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has revealed the massive method that the present will probably be fully totally different in Season eight, saying this:
All I will say about it’s I wish to go to the longer term — nonetheless topical, however the future, which I’ve by no means carried out.
There we’ve it! Season eight of American Horror Story will take the motion into the longer term. Ryan Murphy was unwilling to say extra about what he envisions for the brand new episodes, though he did make clear that going to the longer term does not imply going into house. No matter occurs will nonetheless be set on Earth. No particulars are at present accessible concerning the forged. Nonetheless, I would put my cash on Ryan Murphy regulars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters not less than showing. Whereas each are lots busy with other projects, American Horror Story simply would not really feel like American Horror Story with out these two on board, and so they’ve confirmed time and time once more that they’ll swap characters with none bother.
That stated, we should not begin putting bets on who will and won’t be again for Season eight simply but. Ryan Murphy went on on the TCA semi-annual press tour (by way of EW) to clarify simply how just lately he got here up with the thought of setting the eighth season sooner or later and received the approval from the community:
I pitched it to [FX chief] John Landgraf at this time proper after his TCA panel, and he cherished it, however he is requested me to not say what it’s. I informed him and he fell out of his chair with pleasure. I believe folks will prefer it, it is totally different from what we have carried out earlier than, however I at all times attempt to do the alternative of what I’ve carried out on that present.
The FX head honcho is on board, though he apparently did not need Ryan Murphy to spill the beans concerning the plan for Season eight so rapidly. He solely simply came upon concerning the concept himself! All issues thought of, it isn’t particularly shocking that John Landgraf would rapidly log off on American Horror Story going to the longer term. Ryan Murphy initiatives have been big successes for the community to this point, and he most likely has a good quantity of belief from FX.
