Although we don't yet know who Lourd will be playing, we do know a bit about the cast itself, which will look pretty familiar for regular viewers of the anthology series. Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates are all set to return. Peters' character is a comedic hairdresser type — a role creator Ryan Murphy teased with an Instagram post. Meanwhile, Joan freaking Collins is joining the cast to play the grandmother of Peters' character.
When it comes to the actual storyline of Season 8, we still know very little. It is set in the near future, potentially in 2019, and there are rumors it will be subtitled Radioactive. If that's true, perhaps this is the season Murphy finally sets his sights on taking down the terrifying and inescapable Imagine Dragons? One can only hope.
Production on the new season is expected to begin in June, so hopefully all will be revealed soon and we'll have the new season by the end of the year.
