The creator of ‘American Horror Story’, Ryan Murphy has now revealed that the next season of the hit series will be set in the future.
Today at the semi-annual Television Critics Association’s tour in Pasadena Murphy teased the season, EW reports.
All I’ll say about it is I want to go to the future – still topical, but the future, which I’ve never done,” He stated.
How far in the future is the question? When asked Murphy clarified that it is “not space”.
I pitched it to [FX chief] John Landgraf today right after his TCA panel, and he loved it, but asked me not to say what it is,” Murphy continued. “I told him and he fell out of his chair with joy. I think people will like it, it’s different from what we’ve done before, but I always try and do the opposite of what I’ve done on that show.”
The writers’ room will begin in February. No cast has been announced for season 8 thus far.
Planning for season 9, which will feature a crossover between Murder House and Coven, is already underway with the outline for the season finished.
