2. It will be a crossover between Murder House (Season 1) and Coven (Season 3)...

3. ...in which "a character from Season 1...will be thrust into the world that you are left with at the end of Coven," AHS creator Ryan Murphy told Entertainment Weekly in 2017.

Possibly Michael, Tate and Vivien's son (aka the Antichrist)?

4. Season 8 is "set in the near future," around October 2019, Murphy announced in April.

5. He called Season 8 "fantasy-inspired" and said its tone would be reminiscent of Asylum and Coven.

"It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as [Cult]," he said.

6. It's going to feel like a reunion. "You will see so many fan favorites return that you’ll feel like it’s The Love Boat,” Murphy told EW.

The big question, of course, is if Jessica Lange will return to the franchise.

7. Episode 5 contains a pivotal moment. "[T]here’s a big hook to it. There’s a huge thing that happens in Episode 5," Murphy divulged.

8. Sarah Paulson will reportedly play two characters, one of which is either Billie Dean Howard from Murder House or Cordelia Foxx from Coven.
