If it’s a day ending in “Y” then it’s time for another teaser for Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk‘s American Horror Story Apocalypse, with FX releasing yet another teaser for the horror anthology’s upcoming Murder House/Coven crossover eighth season (check out our Twisty the Clown theory from the previous teaser here). In the teaser, we see that the poison from forbidden fruit can be quite deadly, and the possibility that the scorpions (similar to the first teaser) represent Michael Langdon’s (Cody Fern) Antichrist forces – and the Coven standing against him.
FX broke some great news for American Horror Story fans at this year’s TCA summer press event: that the horror anthology series had been renewed for a 10th season (FX Networks CEO John Landgraf: “He (Murphy) asked for a 10th season of American Horror Story which we were happy to give to him”); and that Jessica Lange would be reprising her Murder House role as Constance Langdon, appearing in the sixth episode – which marks Sarah Paulson’s directorial debut on the show (Paulson: “I have the great pleasure of saying, yes, she (Lange) will be back”).
Paulson, Lange, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, and Stevie Nicks are set to return to Murphy’s horrific universe. Joan Collins (Dynasty) is joining the cast as Peters’s grandmother; Cody Fern (House of Cards) is joining as adult Michael Langdon; and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (UnReal) and Kyle Allen (The Path) are set for guest appearances.
Now it’s time to get your scorecards to see how everyone matches up, AHS fans: Rabe appeared in the Murder House, Coven, Hotel, and Roanoke seasons, while Sidibe appeared in Coven, Freak Show, and Hotel. Farmiga appeared in Murder House, Coven, and Roanoke; AHS mainstay Conroy has appeared in six seasons: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Roanoke, and Cult. Nicks appeared as the White Witch during Coven.
Meanwhile… Paulson’s Billie Dean Howard appeared in Murder House, and her Cordelia Foxx appeared in Coven. Peters played ghostly teen Tate Langdon in Murder House and fraternity president Kyle Spencer in Coven. Lange’s Constance Langdon appeared in Murder House, while Bates and Roberts joined the franchise during Coven as Madame Delphine LaLaurie and Madison Montgomery, respectively.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse premieres Wednesday, September 12th at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT on FX.
