We already knew Jessica Lange was set to return to American Horror Story along with Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and a host of other favorites. Yesterday on Twitter creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the return of a few more series alums including Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Stevie Nicks, and my personal favorite Lily Rabe.
Of course, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. After all, we know Apocalypse will be a crossover season that brings together two of the franchise’s best seasons Murder House and Coven. How Ryan Murphy does that is still in question, although if the teaser is any indication, it’ll be explosive (That’s a terrible pun, I’m sorry).
Nonetheless, it’s exciting to get so many series favorites back together again. It’ll be interesting to see how some characters are portrayed, being that a few of them play very different roles in their respective seasons.
We won’t have to wait too long, American Horror Story Apocalypse debuts September 12 on FX.
