“American Horror Story” co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed Sunday that an upcoming season of his FX anthology series will feature a crossover between the series’ first season, “Murder House,” and its third season, “Coven.”
“We do know what we’re going to do,” Murphy said at EW’s PopFest. “It’s not going to be next season, but we are going to do a season that’s a crossover between ‘Murder House’ and ‘Coven’ together, which is very bizarre.”
Murphy went on to clarify what he meant by a crossover, adding, “There will be characters from ‘Murder House’ and characters from ‘Coven’ together.”
“Murder House,” the series’ first season, starred Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott as a couple experiencing marital troubles, which are only exacerbated when they move from Boston to Los Angeles to get a fresh start.
“Coven,” meanwhile, brought the creepy action to New Orleans, exploring a mysterious girls’ boarding school which was established to protect the descendants of the witches who survived the Salem witch trials.
Murphy didn’t reveal which of the characters would pop back up in the crossover, though he did note that he’s begun reaching out to actors who appeared in those seasons to check on scheduling.
“I’ve [already] started going to actors from both of the seasons, quietly, saying, ‘I think in this window, if you could fit us in,'” Murphy noted. “So yeah, it’s fun. It’s weird.”
The sixth season of the installment series, “Roanoke,” currently airs on FX. Promotional material for the current season has suggested that all of the seasons to date are somehow connected, though it was also revealed that some of the teaser trailers for “Roanoke” were purposely created to misdirect fans.
