American Horror Story Season 8 Premiere Date Revealed

American Horror Story will bring together Murder House and Coven for its impending eighth season — and we now know when the epic crossover will happen. 

FX revealed on the official American Horror Story Twitter that season 8 of the series will premiere on September 12. The announcement tweet came with a cheeky caption: "Not Long Now."

A mid-September debut date falls in line with the launches of both Roanoke (season 6) and Cult (season 7), which aired on September 14, 2016 and September 5, 2017, respectively. In its first five seasons, from Murder House to HotelAmerican Horror Story bowed in early to mid October, with the season finales airing sometime between late December and late January. Scooting the launch date up a few weeks has allowed the season to wrap up shortly after Halloween, when spooks and scares are still on everyone's minds. 

What's different about American Horror Story season 8 compared to installments past, however, is it's very structure: it's an official collaboration between the first and third seasons of the show. Of course, with AHS being an anthology series, fans have seen familiar faces appear throughout various storylines, but season 8 will see the return of actors as the characters viewers already know, love, and fear. 

Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, and Sarah Paulson are set to lead AHS season 8, with Taissa Farmiga and Emma Roberts also on board. Farmiga will reprise her role as Zoe Benson, the witch she played in Coven, and Roberts will become a living meme and return as Madison Montgomery, the queen bee sorceress also seen in Coven. It's unclear whether Farmiga will also portray her Murder House character Violet Harmon, who committed suicide in the middle of the season and continued appearing as a ghost until the season finale. 

Also attached to the upcoming season of AHS are Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter, and Leslie Grossman. 

We may have an official premiere date for American Horror Story season 8, but we're still without a subtitle. Will it be Radioactive like popular rumors have suggested? Or will it be We're Back, Witches? Might FX take a shot at Marvel and proclaim season 8 as The Genuine Most Ambitious Crossover Event in History? It's still a mystery, but thankfully we have until September 12 to figure it out — and think of some better alternatives.
