FX has released the title and information for the first two episodes of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse”, which reveal two interesting tidbits. The first being that the show is seemingly kicking off with the Apocalypse and picking up immediately after. The title of the premiere episode (8.01) is “The End”, with the following week’s (8.02) titled “The Morning After”.
There are no plot details, as usual, but FX also revealed that Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena, Chained, Hisss, Surveillance, “Damien”, “Wayward Pines”, “The Walking Dead”) directed the second episode, which was penned by “The X-Files” fav James Wong (Final Destination).
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk collaborated on the premiere, which was helmed by series regular Bradley Buecker (“Scream Queens”).
I’ve also added some new art below.
The season mashes together “Murder House” and “Coven,” and Jessica Lange will be reprising the role of “Murder House” character Constance Langdon.
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.
Just recently announced, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks are all coming back as well.
Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (“UnReal”) and Kyle Allen (“The Path”) recently joined the cast, both actors appearing in a “guest” capacity.
FX brings the apocalypse on September 12th.
