The next installment of the FX anthology series "American Horror Story" will likely debut in the fall, but the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy is teasing the upcoming Season 8, telling Entertainment Weekly it's "unlike anything we've ever done."

Murphy, who spoke with EW alongside frequent collaborator Brad Falchuk to promote their new FX drama "Pose," said he and Falchuck are about to begin production on "AHS" Season 8. Though show starts filming this month, details about the new season are limited but Murphy let a few things out of the bag.

"You will see so many fan favorites return that you'll feel like it's The Love Boat," Murphy told EW. "It's a very high concept."

As previously announced, "AHS" Season 8 will be set 18 months from today and the cast includes Murphy standards like Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, both of whom have appeared in every "AHS" season. Kathy Bates will return, along with Billy Lourd. Newcomer Joan Collins is set to play Peters' grandmother. Rumors have swirled, with many fans speculating the show's subtitle theme will be called "AHS: Radioactive."

Murphy, however, only admitted to the season having one huge twist.

"It's a season unlike anything we've done because there's a big hook to it. There's a huge thing that happens in episode five," he told EW.
