Ryan Murphy’s not slowing down as he continues to summon returning cast members to his upcoming American Horror Story crossover season.
When Murphy announced he’d be combining past seasons Murder House and Coven into one magical superseason and that Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates were all returning, that was big news. Now Emma Roberts has teased that her Coven witch, Madison Montgomery, will return from the dead for the new season.
Here’s the tweet announcement for the crossover season, which Emma Roberts retweeted:
That’s item one in a small series of social media evidence.
Next up is when Roberts put a video up on Instagram -- in character as Madison. “Surprise bitch, bet you thought you’d seen the last of me,” the twice-killed character said. She’s been sliced and strangled, but she could definitely be back again. Witchcraft means a second lease on life isn’t unheard of -- but a third? Maybe.
Watch the video and see what you think:
The final nail in this spooky coffin is when Murphy responded to a tweet, asking if Taissa Farmiga would return in Season 8, with, “All the witches are being asked back.” The tweet may have been deleted, but the excitement it’s generated remains.
