The hit horror show “American Horror Story” will be celebrating its tenth birthday by launching what producers are saying is the most traumatising season since it began. The show may not continue after season 10, however.

The good news is that Jessica Lange will be back after being such an iconic figure during seasons one to four, for which she was nominated for four Emmy awards and took home two. Lange will be reprising her role as Constance. Sarah Paulson will also be starring in “American Horror Story” season 8, and will also be making her directorial debut on the show.

‘AHS’ crossover

American Horror Story: Apocalypse” will feature three episodes where there are crossover characters from the “Murder House” and “Coven seasons, which will see Paulson’s witches attempting to stop a young antichrist (played by Cody Fern from season 1) from bringing an end to the world.

As reported by the Metro, while it will be great to see Lange returning to the series, the sad news is that Evan Peters is probably leaving the show. After rumours of his departure did the rounds, Peters reportedly told GQ that he isn’t doing it anymore, going on to say he made the decision, telling himself he can’t do it anymore.

Peters said it’s just not him and it’s not who he is.

FX President John Landgraf spoke on Friday at the TCA press tour, saying the horror show has been officially renewed and will air for a special 10th anniversary season. Ryan Murphy, co-creator of “American Horror Story,” is committed to the show for now, even though he has signed a production pact to create exclusive new content for Netflix.

However, Landgraf admitted that the future of “American Horror Story” depends on Murphy and whether he can remain inspired about it. He then said the eighth season will be “awesome and crazy,” saying that he believes fans will really enjoy it. He said it all comes down to whether Murphy and collaborators like Tim Minear can keep coming up with stories they find exciting.
