It hasn’t been long since we were treated to Ryan Murphy’s take on the end of the world, but he’s already teasing us with loose plans for season 9.

We’ve seen Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters take on a haunted house, an asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, a vampire filled evil hotel, a cannibal nightmare, a sick cult and the apocalypse. We have absolutely no idea how the last season can be topped but we have no doubt that Ryan Murphy has some surprises up his sleeve.

Back in December, Murphy teased: “We have something really fun planned.” It sounds like the show will be taking a step back after the climactic Murder House/Coven crossover.

This week, Murphy shared a picture of Olympic medallist Gus Kenworthy on Instagram, announcing that Emma Roberts, who plays the infamous Madison in Coven, will be back for season 9.

“That special moment when you realize you have an Olympic medal AND will be playing Emma Roberts’ boyfriend on American Horror Story Season 9,” he captioned the photo.

It’s unknown whether Emma Roberts will be reprising her role as Madison. It’s unlikely that season 9 will air before the end of 2019 but hopefully we will know more about the cast soon.
