In the immediate wake of the news that FX has renewed “American Horror Story” for ninth and tenth seasons, we’ve learned tonight that this year’s Season 8, “American Horror Story: Apocalypse,” will mark the series return of Jessica Lange!
The season mashes together “Murder House” and “Coven,” and Lange will be reprising the role of “Murder House” character Constance Langdon.
Lange had departed “AHS” after Season 4, “Freak Show.”
Cody Fern (“Assassination of Gianni Versace”) will be playing the adult version of Tate’s evil baby from “Murder House.” He’s not just evil, he’s the Anti-Christ.
Also confirmed are Sarah Paulson as Cordelia Foxx and Billie Dean Howard, Emma Roberts as Madison Montgomery, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Joan Collins, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Billy Eichner and Adina Porter.
Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (“UnReal”) and Kyle Allen (“The Path”) recently joined the cast, both actors appearing in a “guest” capacity.
