American Horror Story - Season 8 - Leslie Grossman, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson Returning + More Details

Update: Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson & Billy Eichner to Return. Also, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will direct episodes this season per THR.

Update: It appears via Instagram, Leslie Grossman is returning to AHS.

Ryan Murphy has revealed the next installment of his American Horror Story anthology will take place “18 months from today.”

Speaking at the show’s pre-Emmy voting ‘for your consideration’ event in Los Angeles on Friday, Murphy also revealed Evan Peters will play a comedic hair stylist, while Joan Collins will play his grandmother.

“It’s heightened,” he said of the season 8. “It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season. We’re sort of getting back to Asylum, and Coven. That’s the tone of it.”

Adina Porter, who has thus far worked three AHS seasons, asked Murphy, “Are there minorities in it?” To which Murphy replied, “I will tell you that three of our leads are indeed minorities.” 

This in turn prompted Leslie Grossman to ask if Peters would get to style Joan Collins’ hair on the show, which Murphy confirmed he would. “Joan Collins? Yes,” he said. “She plays Evan’s grandmother.” This last statement was met by huge cheers from the audience, and a very big smile from Peters.
