American Horror Story fans are currently rejoicing over the latest news for season 8. After months of speculation and hoping and wishing, fans are finally getting what they want–the return of Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott for the upcoming eighth season that will present a crossover with past seasons of Coven and Murder House.

Britton and McDermott were in the very first season of the series and played a couple that had a very twisted, complicated story that resulted in their deaths by the season 1 finale.
