Posted by September 5, 2018 Comment

After a really long stretch of teasers and behind-the-scenes images across every possible social media platform short of MySpace, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have released the holy grail of their seeming endless marketing campaign (promos for FX’s American Horror Story season 9 begin… now!): the official trailer for Murder House-Coven crossover season American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

But enough with the small talk — here you go with the official trailer, as well as some info on the first two episodes:

American Horror Story: Apocalypse s08e01 ‘The End’: written by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, directed by Bradley Buecker

American Horror Story: Apocalypse s08e02 ‘The Morning After’: written by James Wong, directed by Jennifer Lynch

Murphy and Falchuk gave American Horror Story fans their first look at actual footage from the season on Tuesday with a special preview (translation: “teaser just before the official trailer”) that lives up to its name by beginning at the end… of the world as we know it (cue: ominous music)!

Fans of American Horror Story were treated to some great news at this year’s Television Critics Association (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 (who will also be playing a new character this season by the name of Venable), Lange, Emma Roberts, Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, 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 RoanokeAHS mainstay Conroy has appeared in six seasons: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Roanoke, and Cult.
