Set those DVRs now.
Ryan Murphy popped onto Twitter to share some big news about the next installment of American Horror Story.
And while fans usually freak out (with good reason) when he makes the big reveal about what topic the anthology series will tackle next, this one is especially exciting.
The TV mogul wrote: “The Coven/Murder House AHS crossover season won’t be happening next year…because it’s happening THIS YEAR. AHS #8 WITCHES RULE THIS SEPTEMBER”

That’s right — AHS season 8 will be a crossover with Murder House (2011) and Coven (2013).
The series got its start with Murder House when a family moved into a very lovely (though terribly haunted) house in Los Angeles.
Coven, of course, revolved around a group of witches in New Orleans.
Will the witches close escrow on the murder house? Will the house grow feathered wings and transport itself to the Bayou? Only time will tell.
Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates — who appeared in both seasons — are set to return, though it’s not clear which characters they’ll revisit (or will they play dual roles?).
Also on board for season 8 is Dame Joan Collins, set to play a “glamorous” part. Duh.
“It’s a very high concept”, Murphy told Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s a season unlike anything we’ve done because there’s a big hook to it. There’s a huge thing that happens in episode 5.”
