American Horror Story” will wrap up its sixth season “Roanoke” in the next few weeks, but creator Ryan Murphy is already looking ahead to what’s coming up in the “AHS” universe. During the Ryan Murphy and Friends panel at EW’s PopFest Sunday, Murphy followed up on previous comments about returning to the fan-favorite “Coven” season of the series, which followed a coven of witches living in New Orleans fighting for survival. Murphy confirmed that the return to “Coven” would not be a prequel or a sequel, but would rather be a crossover with the anthology series’ first season “Murder House.”

“We do know what we’re going to do,” Murphy said to the crowd. “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.”

Murphy continued by saying that the future season will feature characters from “Murder House” and “Coven,” so naturally many familiar faces will return to the series. “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.”
