Development

On January 12, 2017, the series was renewed for an eighth season, set to premiere on September 12, 2018. In October 2016, series co-creator Ryan Murphy announced a "crossover" season between previous cycles Murder House and Coven. In January 2018, he stated that the ninth season would most likely feature the crossover; however, in June 2018, he announced that the eighth season was chosen instead. Murphy has also stated that the eighth season would be set 18 months in the future, in October 2019, and would feature an Asylum and Coven tone. In July 2018, it was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that the title of the season would be Apocalypse.

In April 2018, it was revealed that series veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters would each make their directorial debuts in an episode of the season. It was later revealed that Paulson would direct the sixth episode.
