If you’re looking for mayhem, murder, and leather, the new trailer for American Horror Story: Apocalypse is sure to satisfy (and if the trailer seems incoherent and confusing, don’t worry, the season will be just as frustrating).
Season Eight of FX’s long running horror “anthology” series will bring together characters and story lines from previous seasons this time around, primarily Murder House (Season One) and Coven (Season Three).
Season eight also includes the return of Jessica Lange, who took a well-deserved break from the series after Season four’s Freak Show.
Many other AHS alumi are also coming back for more including: Sarah Paulson (who will portray three different characters this season!), Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Emma Roberts, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Joan Collins, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Billy Eichner, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks. and Adina Porter.
In addition to all the standard players, Cody Fern will be making his American Horror Story debut ( after turning in an excellent performance on Ryan Murphy’s more restrained American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and he will be playing the adult version of Tate’s evil baby from Murder House.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse debuts on September 12 on FX.
