Ryan Murphy Reveals That American Horror Story Will Eventually Crossover

American Horror Story executive producer Ryan Murphy explains that the show will mashup characters from previous seasons at some point.

Speaking at Entertainment Weekly‘s Popfest, the American Horror Story showrunner stated that he has drawn up plans to revisit old characters and put them in interesting new contexts, namely by making them interact with characters from different seasons of the show. However, Murphy made it clear that such a crossover will not be happening in Roanake, the show’s current season, meaning it could happen either next season or in future ones:

“There will be characters from ‘Murder House’ and characters from ‘Coven’ together,” said Murphy. “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. So yeah, it’s fun. It’s weird.”

The cast of the current American Horror Story: Roanoke includes recurring cast members Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Frances Conroy, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson, Leslie Jordan, Adina Porter, and Robin Weigert, as well as new additions Cuba Gooding Jr. and André Holland.

Ryan Murphy serves as Co-Creator, Showrunner, Executive Producer, Writer and Director of American Horror Story and Brad Falchuk is Co-Creator, Executive Producer and Writer.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
