Fans of Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story were excited to find out that the next chapter of the series would be titled 1984. And because of the name, Patty Jenkins, director of 2017's Wonder Woman, (and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984) poked fun at the showrunner.

The next installment of the Wonder Woman series is indeed titled Wonder Woman 1984--and Jenkins couldn't resist trolling Murphy over the similarities in their titles.

"Dear @MrRPMurphy #AHS1984," the director tweeted. "Wow, what a great title!!! Oh... wait a minute. Uh... Love, #WW1984."

The creator of AHS was quick to clap back, referencing the most famous title including the year everyone seems to be talking about: George Orwell's classic dystopian novel 1984.

The witty banter was a meeting of the worlds for fans of the two franchises, with many reacting positively to the fun the two seemed to be having.

While little else has been confirmed about season nine of the spooky show, it's unfortunately been confirmed Evan Peters will not be appearing in the upcoming season. It will be the first season he has not been involved in.

As always, however, we're looking forward to any and everything AHS related. As for the DC film, Wonder Woman 1984 is due out in June 2020.
