Murder House (2011)

The first series in the anthology, it has direct connections to Coven, Hotel and Apocalypse seasons.

The half ghost child from Murder House grows up to be Michael Langdon, the son of Satan who terrorises people in Apocalypse.

Then the witch Madison – played by Emma Roberts – actually visits Murder House, and her first appearance was in Coven, so the seasons all exist in the same universe.

Additionally, Sarah Poulson’s chain smoking psychic from Murder House reappears as a guide to ghosts in Hotel.

 Asylum has direct links to four other seasons

Asylum (2012)

The second series links directly to four other seasons; Freak Show, Cult, Roanoke and 1984.

The key to the connections is Briarcliff and its residents, as Asylum’s Pepper also appears in Freak Show.

Meanwhile Sarah Poulson’s fearless reporter Lana Winters is Asylum’s main protagonist before reappearing in Roanoke and Cult.

Coven (2013)

The third series is connected to four other ones; Murder House, Apocalypse, Hotel and Roanoke.

The connection between Coven and Murder House via Apocalypse has previously been explained, but Apocalypse also revealed what Hotel Cortez actually is.

Roanoke then bridged the two separate universes thanks to Lady Gaga’s character Scathach, a powerful witch who turns out to be the first Supreme of the line of witches followed in Coven.

In turn this means Murder House, Apocalypse and Hotel are connected to Asylum, Freak Show, Cult and 1984.

 Twisty the Clown killed plenty of people in Freak Show

Freak Show (2014)

The fourth series isn’t just connected to Asylum by Pepper, the two are also linked by the same Nazi doctor and Sister Mary Eunice.

Freak Show also has direct connections with Hotel and Cult, with the latter series featuring Twisty the Clown – who killed plenty of characters in Freak Show – as a comic book character.

Meanwhile the deranged mother and son duo are related to Edward Phillipe Mott who created the mansion in Roanoke, which means Freak Show and the sixth season share some of the same history.

 Lady Gaga's character in Hotel links directly to another series, while residents also appear across the anthology

Cult (2017)

The seventh series links to two others, Asylum and Freak Show thanks to Lana Winters and Freak Show killer Twisty the Clown.

However it’s not clear if the Twisty in Cult is just a comic book character in that universe or is based on the real killer clown.
