‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ Season 8 Cast Spoilers

American Horror Story Apocalypse Cast

FX Network

American Horror Story: Apocalypse is here and it’s not the beginning of season 8 … It’s the end. The premiere episode title “The End” refers to the end of the world and that is where AHS picks up. This season is a cross-over, combining season 1’s American Horror Story: Murder House and season 3’s American Horror Story: Coven. This means that some of the actors are pulling double duty as multiple characters. But, before we get into some of the spoilers on each of the cast members, THIS IS YOUR SPOILER WARNING. Do NOT continue reading if you don’t want to know any information about the new season.

Angela Bassett is not returning to the show this season, as she is busy working on the show 9-1-1, but Jessica Lange, who left the show after season 4, is back to reprise some of her former roles on the series. According to The Wrap, Lange will return in the 6th episode of the season. Previously, she played neighbor Constance Langdon in “Murder House” and Supreme witch Fiona Goode in “Coven.” Lange will reprise just one of the roles – Constance.

And, some of the other familiar faces returning include Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Lily Allen, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Joan Collin, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Stevie Nicks, Connie Britton, Billie Lourd, and Adina Porter.

There are also some newcomers. They include Ashley Santos, Kyle Allen, and Cody Fern. Previously, Fern appeared on The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story season 2.

In AHS season 8, Cody Fern plays the role of a grown up Michael Langdon. Michael was the baby Vivien (played by Connie Britton) in “Murder House”. After being raped by Tate (played by Evan Peters), Vivien died giving birth to Michael. Tate’s mother ended up adopting the baby, who proved to be a murderer on the finale of “Murder House”.
