“American Horror Story” is going to be wowing viewers with frightening stories for seasons to come. The FX original show has been renewed through Season 9.

While it’s anyone's guess when Season 8 and 9 will air and what the themes of those seasons will be, we now have a little intel about Season 7, including when to expect the premiere. Entertainment Tonight reports that “American Horror Story” will return for a seventh season this spring.

The theme has yet to be revealed, but Ryan Murphy has been clear that he and his co-creator Brad Falchuk don’t intend to keep it underwraps the way they did with “My Roanoke Nightmare.” Little else was announced about Season 7 of “American Horror Story,” but it seems likely that the show will — once again — be made up of cast members from seasons past in reimagined roles.

Emma Roberts has already said she’s totally down to appear in future seasons of “American Horror Story.” The actress, who starred in Seasons 3 and 4, opened up to ET about her hope that she’d be able to star in a forthcoming season of the FX series. She revealed that she wasn’t able to do so before because of conflicting filming schedules with “American Horror Story” and “Scream Queens.” Additionally, Roberts told ET she was hopeful that if she did get recast she’d be able to face off with Lady Gaga, calling it “my dream.”

Other theories about who may come back to “American Horror Story” in Season 7 include Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Sarah Paulson, Cheyenne Jackson and Lady Gaga. Although none of the aforementioned stars have been confirmed, most have appeared in multiple seasons of the show which increases the likelihood. Others we’d like to see back include Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga and Chloë Sevigny.

In a conference call with TVLine in November 2016, Murphy shared a few clues about what’s to come in Season 7 and who will be starring. “American Horror Story” will take a deeper dive into aspects of Season 4 — “Freak Show” — and bring back characters from that particular season. There will also be a ton of twists and turns, just like in Season 6.

“Next year, we will be going back to some ‘Freak Show’ characters, deeper histories and mythologies. So we’re sort of still exploring Season 4 in Season 7,” he said.

Murphy came up with the idea for Season 7 while lying in bed one night. He shared with Entertainment Weekly in October 2016 that he had been going over the deails of the season for quite some time before he settled on something. When it came to him, however, he knew it that was “‘it.”
