Not the futuristic dystopia after all
Since the last season ended, people have speculated and followed what looked like clues about American Horror Story Season 8. And most of us had accepted that it would be set in a dystopian future. But we should have known better.
This season, season 8, is going to be the crossover the fans were waiting for. Murder House & Coven. Angry ghosts & Witches? I cannot for the life of me remember why this seemed like a good idea. Why I agreed that it could work. I think I’m going to have to go back and watch both series again – notebook in hand perhaps. But don’t worry, there’ll be a recap of both series in just a moment. But first…
Here’s what we know about American Horror Story Season 8 so far:

Murder House Recap
When a family move to LA and buy a house that seems too good to be true – they think they’ve found the place to put their troubles behind them. But the house is a place of trouble. Between the day it was built by Dr. Charles Montgomery to 2011 it drew tortured souls to it and watched them die horrible deaths. And the ghosts have no intention of moving on.
Witches and Witchcraft in New Orleans. Teenagers learning how to use their gifts and working towards becoming the next supreme whilst the older witches, and the current supreme, battle it out the Voodoo witches of the area over a long-held grudge. Everyone is after something and they all have something to hide, even the butler Spalding.
