The season will be a cross-over between season one “Murder House” and season three “Coven.” Returning cast members will include Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman. Joan Collins will also be added to the cast.
Murphy hasn’t revealed too many details about the cross-over but told Entertainment Weekly: “It’s a season unlike anything we’ve done, because there’s a big hook to it. There’s a huge thing that happens in episode five. You will see so many fan favorites return that you’ll feel like it’s ‘The Love Boat.’ It’s a very high-concept.”
“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” premieres on Sept. 12 on FX.
