Another Comic-Con reveal has been thrust upon us and this time it's the title for season 8 of American Horror Story. FX is officially calling the Murder House-Coven crossover, American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
The events of season 8 are said to be set in the not-too-distant future, with regular cast members returning. Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd and Adina Porter are all said to be back. Dynasty legend Joan Collins joins the horror anthology as grandmother of Evan Peters' character who plays a comedic hairdresser.
Not much is known at this point about the plot, but looking at the plots of the 2 season they're crossing over may hold some clues.
Murder House: When the Harmon family relocates to a stately mansion in Los Angeles, disturbing secrets start enveloping each of their lives. As they slowly learn about the mysterious and deadly history of their new house, psychiatrist Ben, Vivien and their teenage daughter Violet find themselves surrounded by all manner of menacing spirits, living and dead.
Coven: The few remaining Salem descendants are under assault by forces of ignorance and hate. The young witches seek refuge at Miss Robichaux's Academy in New Orleans, including new arrival, Zoe, who harbors a terrifying secret of her own. Fiona, a Supreme Witch with unimaginable powers, is determined to protect the Coven, but her obsessive quest for immortality will lead her to cross paths with a voodoo queen and a murderous slave owner cursed with eternal life.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse hits FX on September 12.
