I think it's safe to say that the final episode of American Horror Story: Cult which aired last month left everybody shocked and searching for answers.\nThough not much official information has been released regarding season 8 as of yet, there have been several quotes, comments, and rumours circulating the web, and Digital Spy has compiled every single one to give fans an idea of what to expect when the show comes back next year.\nHere are some key secrets to take away from their findings:\nvia @ahsfx\nSeason 8 could become a shared universe\nRyan murphy has been reaching out to stars from past seasons, specifically the spirits from season 1 and the witches from season 3. "I've started going to actors from both seasons," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. This means that season 8 of American Horror Story could turn out to be the series' first major crossover.\nSome familiar names to return could include Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and even Jessica Lange. Regulars like Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Denis O'Hare will also likely make a return appearance\nvia @ahsfx\nThe story could be closely tied to Coven\nIt's likely that season 8 will have shared elements to season 3, especially since there's been a noticeable trend of newer seasons mirroring several aspects of older ones. It happened with Roanoake (season 6) and season 1, and the latest season Cult (season 7) and Asylum (season 2). If this is the case, season 8 could have a lot to do with witch hunts.\nAHS veteran Sarah Paulson teases us about the upcoming storyline in an extremely vague statement:\n"[Ryan Murphy] and I have had a preliminary conversation, and I can tell you that the thought of it is very exciting to me."\nvia @ahsfx\nIt will likely be released in September 2018\nAHS has always followed a similar broadcasting pattern. Based on previous airings, Digital Spy believes that season 8 will air somewhere between the 1st and 4th of September.\nAre you excited for AHS season 8?
