American Horror Story‘s crossover-crazed eighth season has been rendered ineligible to compete in Emmy’s 2019 Limited Series race.
The Television Academy announced on Tuesday that because AHS: Apocalypse contained “continuing story threads, characters and actors reprising those same character roles from previous seasons” — specifically the Murder House, Coven and Hotel installments — it is being “re-categorized” from the Limited Series category to Drama Series.
Change - Season - USA - Network - Sinner
The change also applies to Season 2 of USA Network’s The Sinner and Season 2 of Netflix’s American Vandal.
The Academy is quick to note that this “re-categorization” is effective for the 2019 Emmy Awards competition only.
