Good news in Murphyland! You don’t have to keep calling “American Horror Story” Season 8 the “Murder House”-“Coven” crossover, because we finally have an official title.
On Friday, Ryan Murphy’s hit FX anthology series released the name of its upcoming eighth installment — and some wild key art — via its social media accounts during San Diego Comic-Con 2018. And, no, it isn’t that much-buzzed-about “Radioactive” moniker.
The next season of the freak show is officially called “Apocalypse.” This shocking revelation came alongside the creepiest images associated with a season yet: a blood-red baby being toyed with by a scary, jet-black hand with some killer nails.
We’re all in agreement that the red and black is a perfect choice for a “Coven”/”Murder House” combo and that creepy latex-y baby is the “Murder” side of the coin and the spooky black hand is the witchy part, right?
Last month, Murphy took to Twitter to reveal the eagerly-anticipated crossover installment will arrive on FX this September. The news came as a shock to fans, as the series’ creator previously said the mashup was slated for Season 9.
“The Coven/Murder House AHS crossover season won’t be happening next year…because it’s happening THIS YEAR. AHS #8 WITCHES RULE THIS SEPTEMBER,” he said.
“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” will star Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson and newcomer Joan Collins.

“American Horror Story: Season 8” will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 12 on FX.
