Tessa Farmiga is slowly and steadily becoming the top scream queen. She's got the upcoming horror flick 'Nun' under her belt from the 'Conjuring' franchise, and she's coming back for a highly anticipated season of 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse.'

She was last seen in 'AHS: Coven' where she played a naive witch who learns the consequences of her actions and 'AHS: Murder House' where she was Violet the rebellious teen who ends up falling for a ghost. She will be returning to the season 8 of the franchise but get this - she will be playing both of her previous characters!

Sarah Paulson who is also a recurring character and super crucial to the plot will be following suit - she will not only Supreme Cordelia and medium Billie Dean Howard in 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' but she will play the role of Venable. 'AHS' has kept this character's description close to their chests so far.  

We already know that this season will be a crossover of 'Murder House' and 'Coven' so we guess it is appropriate that they bring back the characters but how would both of them in the plot work? We think there may be some insane time travel or some serious black magic involved. Black magic more so because Violet, along with Ben and Vivien had died in their home. Well, they were technically ghosts.

There is also the case of Gabourey Sidibe coming back as Queenie, Frances Conroy as Myrtle Snow, Lily Rabe as Misty Day and Emma Roberts as Madison Montgomery coming back. Now, all of them were dead at the end of 'Coven.' Anything can happen in 'AHS,' so fingers crossed! 

 



 

So far, this season has been the most anticipated of all time - especially since the way the trailer portrays the apocalypse and the red devil baby is quite creepy. The child born out of violence and rape, Michael Langdon plays the antichrist baby that will spell doom for all. He's obviously grown since 'Murder House' and grandma Constance is taking care of him. Yes, Jessica Lange will also be making a comeback this season. The maddening Constance Langdon is set to appear in episode six of 'Apocalypse,' which will be directed by Sarah Paulson.

There are others making a comeback too - Leslie Grossman will be back as Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt, Billie Lourd as Mallory, Adina Porter as Dinah Stevens, and Kathy Bates as Miss Meade. Cheyenne Jackson and Billy Eichner will also be coming back, but there's nothing revealed yet about their characters.

Evan Peters, who played Tate Langdon and Kyle Spencer in 'Murder House' and 'Coven' respectively will also make a comeback - as a hairdresser. Ryan Murphy, who is the king of teasers in terms of this season, had said earlier in June, "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." 

'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' premieres on FX Wednesday, September 12, at 10 p.m. ET.
