American Horror Story season 8: Is Emma Roberts returning?

American Horror Story: Cult
Is Emma Roberts returning to American Horror Story season 8? There was a good reason to wonder this almost from the moment that this season was announced as a crossover between Coven and Murder House. Madison was one of the most-popular characters from the third season of the show … but given how Coven ended, we don’t know how exactly she would be returning.

While it’s far from confirmed at present, Roberts hinted at a possible return in a post on Instagram, promoting a live-tweet session that she was going to have with Evan Peters and Ryan Murphy over the latest episode of Pose on FX. In the clip she says one of Madison’s signature lines in “surprise b—h, I bet you’d thought you’d seen the last of me,” and Roberts proclaims that during the live-tweet session she is discussing that and much more. (Thanks to SpoilerTV for pointing this out.)

One of the biggest challenges that we’ve imagined in general for American Horror Story season 8 is going to be assembling some of the best cast members from those seasons, mostly because so many of them are off doing some other things. There is also one big other question to ponder over here: What are we going to see in terms of Jessica Lange, if anything? The legendary actress was a central component in the first two several seasons of the show, and it would be rather strange, regardless of what happened to her characters on those seasons, to not have her be a part of them in any way. After all, she really was considered the lead in season 3 and was still very much important in season 1.

The upcoming Coven / Murder House crossover season is going to be premiering on FX a little bit later this fall. To get more thoughts on it, watch the video below and subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube for so much more.
