Now this is more like it! Ladies and gentlemen, The White Witch (Stevie Nicks) herself is back in this American Horror Story: Apocalypse photo shared by series creator Ryan Murphy.
While we await an official trailer for Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk‘s American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Murphy is throwing AHS fans a little red meat — far and above the brain-scarring teasers for the horror anthology’s upcoming Murder House/Coven crossover eighth season (check out our Twisty the Clown theory) that have been coming out over the past few weeks.
Murphy took to Twitter to post a pic of the Coven cast reunion on the set of American Horror Story: Apocalypse. Joining Nicks are her fellow “witches” Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, and Taissa Farmiga.
“The Coven Returns. What a thrilling night with the legend Stevie Nicks on the set of AHS.”
Fans of American Horror Story were treated to some great news at this year’s TCA summer press event: 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”); Jessica Lange would be reprising her Murder House role as Constance Langdon, appearing in the sixth episode – also marking 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, Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, Farmiga, Sidibe, Rabe, Conroy, and 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.
