‘American Horror Story’ Crossover: ‘Asylum’s’ Lana Winters to Appear on ‘Roanoke’

UPDATED: Now in its sixth season, FX’s “American Horror Story” franchise has started to hint at how the past stories are all interwoven. And characters from previous seasons have popped throughout other installments as well.

Now executive producer Ryan Murphy reveals that Lana Winters — from Season 2’s “Asylum” — will make an appearance on this season’s “Roanoke.”

He tweeted: “Sarah Paulson’s ‘Asylum’ ultimate survivor Lana Winters returns this season on ‘AHS: Roanoke.’ Happy Halloween.”

These crossovers are becoming more common: Paulson, who has appeared on every season of “American Horror Story” (and has famously survived each), also recently reprised her role from “Murder House” (psychic Billie Dean Howard), in last season’s “American Horror Story: Hotel.”

Gabourey Sidibe’s fan favorite Queenie, also starred on “Coven,” made an appearance on “Hotel” as well — though it didn’t well for her, thanks to James March.

Sister Mary Eunice (Lily Rabe) and Pepper (Naomi Grossman) also appeared in both “Asylum” and “Freak Show” (Season 4).

And of course there’s Marcy the realtor, who sold the Harmons their house on Season 1. She also showed up in “Hotel,” giving Will Drake (Cheyenne Jackson) a tour of the ill-fated Hotel Cortez.

On Nov. 10, FX released a preview of what Winters’ return will look like. In “Roanoke’s” season finale, which will air next Wednesday, Winters, now certainly a big TV star, sits down for an exclusive interview with Lee Harris, a polarizing figure after the events in the season’s penultimate episode.

Murphy also recently revealed that he’s planning a crossover season for “Murder House” (Season 1) and “Coven” (Season 3). “There will be characters from ‘Murder House’ and characters from ‘Coven’ together,” he said.
