With Sarah Paulson previously the only confirmed cast member for the upcoming eighth season of American Horror Story, now comes word on two further familiar places who’ll be joining the mainstay in AHS’ return.
As per EW, both Evan Peters and Kathy Bates will be returning to the fold; Peters being the only other name than Sarah Paulson to have appeared in every single season to date.
On this news, creator Ryan Murphy told the outlet, “Kathy and Sarah Paulson have a lot of great stuff they get to do. So, with Evan Peters, the three of them are the leads this year.”
Over the weekend, there were rumours that the title of the near-future-set Season 8 will be American Horror Story: Radioactive, and Murphy addressed these rumblings. “I heard about the rumour,” he said, “Well, that’s based on a fact that we’ve cleared a lot of titles for that show. It’s an interesting idea. I can neither confirm nor deny.”
American Horror Story returns to screens later this year.
