Ryan Murphy may be moving his operation to Netflix, but American Horror Story looks as familiar as ever. Newly confirmed for the eighth season are returning faves Evan Peters and Kathy Bates, while Murphy himself hesitates to strike down a certain “Radioactive” rumor.
Emma Roberts has been understandably scarce from American Horror Story in recent years, but with Scream Queens wailing its last, the Coven and Freak Show star is joining the Cult. Ryan Murphy confirms that Roberts will be back and “ready for action” in Season 7.
Ryan Murphy didn’t tease the American Horror Story Season 7 theme quite so harshly as Season 6, but our guessing game is over nonetheless. American Horror Story: Cult is confirmed as our seventh, politically-minded chapter, taking place in the aftermath of the 2016 election.
Well, our days of astonishment with Ryan Murphy’s eclectic casting are certainly coming to a middle. Just hours away from learning American Horror Story Season 7’s title and theme, the creator reveals that Girls alum Lena Dunham will get political with a guest role.
