Kathy Bates Is Returning for 'American Horror Story' Season 8

In addition, Ryan Murphy addresses the rumor claiming that the upcoming season will be titled 'Radioactive' and set in dystopia.

AceShowbiz - A familiar face will be returning for upcoming season 8 of "American Horror Story". The Oscar-winning actress, who sat out last season, will be joining fellow leading stars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters on Ryan Murphy's series.

The "Titanic" star opted out "American Horror Story: Cult" due to her Netflix comedy "Disjointed". Now that the streaming giant has canceled the comedy, Kathy is available for the new season of the FX anthology series.

"Kathy and Sarah Paulson have a lot of great stuff to get to do," series creator Ryan tells Entertainment Weekly. "So, with Evan Peters, the three of them are the leads this year."

Kathy first appeared in the third season of the series titled "Coven" and starred in the next four seasons until "Roanoke". In the sixth season, "The Great Gilly Hopkins" actress portrayed dual roles, playing Thomasin White and Agnes Mary Winstead.

The eighth season of "American Horror Story" reportedly will be titled "Radioactive". In the new interview, Murphy also addresses the rumor. "I heard about that rumor," he says, "Well, that's based on a fact that we've cleared a lot of titles for that show. It's an interesting idea. I can neither confirm nor deny."

The rumor first sparked after a fan noticed that Twentieth Century Fox filed a new trademark for "American Horror Story: Radioactive" which was believed to be the title of the upcoming season 8. Fans quickly assumed that the new season might be having some kind of apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic storyline. Some even said that it might be about "American nuclear accident" involving President Donald Trump and North Korea President Kim Jong Un.

"A new trademark has been filed for 'American Horror Story: Radioactive'. Could this be the name of the next season? #AHS8," wrote AHS Leaks' Twitter account in the caption.

Though its title remains to be seen, season 8 is set to start filming this summer with a possible fall release.
