Kathy Bates Returning for 'American Horror Story' Season 8


This should be very exciting news for fans of FX's American Horror Story: co-creator Ryan Murphy exclusively tells EW that Kathy Bates will be returning to the anthology series for season 8.

Are you happy to be seeing Kathy Bates appearing on American Horror Story this season?

Ryan Murphy broke the exciting news to Entertainment Weekly, revealing that Bates will be playing one of the season's biggest roles, alongside fellow alums Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters. She joins Murphy's leading duo Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

The Oscar-winning actress was absent last season while launching her since-canceled Netflix series 'Disjointed'. "I heard about that rumor", he says, "Well, that's based on a fact that we've cleared a lot of titles for that show".

Why is EPS essential to watch? Rite Aid Corporation institutional ownership is held at 48.6% while insider ownership was 0.1%. Company's EPS for the prior five-years is valued at 9.8%, leading it to an EPS value of -3.69% for the next five years.

Murphy has also revealed it has a futuristic setting but gave away little else as he said: 'I pitched it to [FX CEO] John Ladgraf and he loved it, but he's asked me not to say what it is. Paulson and Peters have become American Horror Story's consistent anchors, and the idea of Bates' character being on par with theirs is an exciting new development. I know a lot of people will be disappointed if the next season is a near future continuation of the last, set in a post-political dystopia.

After living with constant inundation of the American political climate on every media platform and social network, which seems like an American horror story in itself to many, most didn't want to sit down and relive these particular fears in a fictional format. No other hints have been dropped, so here's to hoping it will be a completely different take, though we know there is a crossover through all the seasons.

Season 8 of American Horror Story is expected to return this fall.
