During the star-studded Ryan Murphy and Friends panel at EW’s PopFest Sunday, moderator Tim Stack quizzed Murphy about comments he made earlier this month about American Horror Story possibly revisiting its third season Coven, which famously followed witches in New Orleans and is arguably the series’ campy cult-favorite season.

Stack asked if such a Coven return would be a prequel, sequel, or something entirely different. Turns out, it’s the latter, and Murphy already knows what that entails.

“We do know what we’re going to do,” Murphy revealed to the crowd in Los Angeles. “It’s not going to be next season, but we are going to do a season that’s a crossover between Murder House and Coven together, which is very bizarre.”

Naturally, the packed house cheered at the news (including Emma Roberts, who played Madison Montgomery on Coven and spoke about her desire to return to the show earlier in the panel). Then Murphy clarified his vision, saying, “There will be characters from Murder House and characters from Coven together.”

Because of the planning, Murphy reiterated that it won’t be the show’s seventh season, simply out of scheduling, but really, the wait is a good thing if it means the return of Murder House alumni like Connie Britton, who has not returned to the series since, or Dylan McDermott, who disappeared after season 2, Asylum.

“I’ve [already] started going to actors from both of the seasons, quietly, saying, ‘I think in this window, if you could fit us in,’” said Murphy. “So yeah, it’s fun. It’s weird.”

Murder House premiered in October 2011 and followed the Harmons (Britton and McDermott) after they relocate from Boston to Los Angeles, hoping for a new lease on life for their family, only to discover that they’ve purchased a haunted mansion and are surrounded by suspicious neighbors. Coven, the third season of AHS, premiered in October 2013.

The current season, Roanoke, is nearing the end of its 10-episode run; new episodes air on FX on Wednesdays at 10 pm.

An anthology series that centers on different characters and locations, including a haunted house, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show and a hotel.
