Surprise, bitch! Bet you couldn't have predicted this news!
We're just over halfway through Roanoke and we haven't even heard news of season seven, but we already know what a future season of American Horror Story will look like. Sort of.
Ryan Murphy participated in a panel for Scream Queens and American Horror Story at this EW's PopFest on Sunday and according to EW, he revealed that not only will AHS be revisiting both Murder House and Coven, but it will be revisiting them together, with characters from both seasons appearing at the same time.
"We do know what we're going to do," Murphy told the crowd. "It's not going to be next season, but we are going to do a season that's a crossover between Murder House and Coven together, which is very bizarre."
Bizarre is right!
Season one's Murder House followed a family (Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Taissa Farmiga) who moved from Boston to Los Angeles and accidentally bought a haunted house filled with ghosts and surrounded by some questionable neighbors.
Season three's Coven was about a group of witches in New Orleans, and while it wasn't quite as packed with scares as some other seasons, it was a whole lot of campy, witchy fun.

Murphy explained that the crossover won't take place next season because of scheduling issues. Hopefully, the extra time will mean we'll get to see more of our favorite actors from those seasons, like Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Emma Roberts, who starred in Coven. In our dreams, it also means the return of Jessica Lange, who starred in both seasons but left the show after season four.
"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," he said. "So yeah, it's fun. It's weird."
Fun, weird, bizarre—whatever word you use to describe it, we cannot wait.
American Horror Story airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
