If you’re liking the revival craze that’s taking over Hollywood right now, then we have some good news for you.
For the others, we’re very sorry.
We’ve known for a while now that American Horror Story Season 8 would be a crossover between American Horry Story: Murder House and American Horror Story: Coven, arguably the best two seasons of the FX hit.
Fans at a late-night event at San Diego Comic-Con were given an eerie first look at the new season, and that consisted of the title being revealed, as well as the poster.
Drum roll please…The title of the eighth iteration of the series is…
American Horror Story: Apocalypse
As if the title alone was not spooky enough, the official poster is enough to freak just about anyone out.
Yes, that does appear to be Satan’s hand comforting a newborn child. If you watch American Horror Story online, you know that Michael was revealed to be the Antichrist on American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 12.
With the Harmons dead, he moved in with his grandmother, Constance (Jessica Lange), but his violent tendencies could not be left behind.
He murdered his nanny, leading Constance to utter the following:
“Now what am I gonna do with you?”
Most fans were unimpressed when it ended that way, but now we will get to find out what happened next.
“Apocalypse,” seems to suggest that Michael’s presence in the world is going to create an imbalance, one that will need to be resolved before the world can return to peace.
Despite the poster being light on the specifics about how Coven comes into things, we do know that Emma Roberts is returning as Madison Montgomery aka the chainsmoking washed-up actress who was killed twice.
Alongside Roberts, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Joan Collins, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, and Kyle Allen will all return.
In a Twitter Q&A in June, Ryan Murphy confirmed that all the witches have been asked back.
That’s good news for the fans who are actually looking forward to this revival with a twist.
For the others, well, you could just live with the fact that you’ve been swindled into watching the first part of the story.
