Billie Lourd to Return in ‘American Horror Story’ Season Eight

Billie Lourd fans were certainly disappointed when her first Ryan Murphy horror series, Scream Queens, was prematurely cancelled after just two seasons… but it looks like she’s found a permanent home on Murphy’s other big horror franchise! After a lead role in last season’s American Horror Story: Cult, Lourd will indeed be returning for Season Eight.

Deadline reports that Lourd has been cast in the upcoming season alongside co-stars such as Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, and Joan Collins. Details on Lourd’s new character have not yet been revealed, and all we know about any of the upcoming parts is that Collins will play the grandmother of Peter’s character.

While we don’t yet know the theme of the upcoming season, Murphy has confirmed that the new story will be set 18 months into the future and it will feature a classic tone more like American Horror Story: Asylum and American Horror Story: Coven than the tone of more recent seasons. Principal photography is set to begin next month, so more and more details should trickle out in the coming weeks.

He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
