The future is looking scarier every day.
While promoting his many shows Friday at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour in Pasadena, American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy shared some vague but exciting details about the FX horror anthology’s upcoming eighth season, Deadline reports.
While American Horror Story: Cult explored our terrifying political present, the next edition will venture into the future.
“All I’ll say about it is I want to go to the future—still topical, but the future, which I’ve never done,” Murphy said. So… space? “Not space.”
“I pitched it to [FX chief] John Landgraf today right after his TCA panel, and he loved it, but he’s asked me not to say what it is,” Murphy added. “I told him and he fell out of his chair with joy. I think people will like it, it’s different from what we’ve done before, but I always try and do the opposite of what I’ve done on that show.”
Murphy also revealed that a crossover between AHS: Murder House and Coven “will likely” happen in season 9.
Set in the 1980s, Murphy’s upcoming FX series Pose will feature five transgender leads, the largest ever for a scripted series.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace, the latest installment of Murphy’s American Crime Story franchise, premieres January 17 on FX.
