'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' - As we wait for the season to drop, here's what happened so far
A crossover between 'Coven' and 'Murder House', this season is also almost as short as 'Roanoak'. With just 10 episodes to horrify us in, wonder what 'AHS: Apocalypse' will bring.
'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' drops on September 12 and this season is anticipated to be the most intense one so far. We wouldn't be surprised if it lived up to the 'Infinity War' comparison it's been garnering because it isn't always that Ryan Murphy decides to club two of his best seasons and make them one! A crossover between 'Coven' and 'Murder House', this season is also almost as short as 'Roanoke'.
With just 10 episodes to horrify us in, wonder what 'AHS: Apocalypse' will bring. We'll just have to wait and find that out but while we wait, let's catch up with things that happened so far so that you are totally on the same page when the antichrist takes over.
'Murder House' connections
Almost all the characters from this season are coming back with an exception of Moira O'Hara, the fetish babe maid. Jessica Lange is reprising her role as murder mom Constance Langdon, along with the Harmon family. Violet, Ben, and Vivien are ghosts now, and they live in the murder house they moved into in season 1. Evan Peters is also coming back, just not as Tate, according to the trailer. He's a silk scarf wearing, a private-plane flying hairdresser who is probably not as crazy in the upcoming season. Also remember Constance's good friend, the medium named Billy Dean Howard? She's back too.
The story of 'Murder House' begins all the way back to Constance's time, which is a really long time ago. A cursed mansion that traps its inhabitants inside its walls after they die; neither lets them die naturally. There's a rubber suit involved - a suit that makes its former residents kill each other and then eventually impregnates Vivien.
The house has a mind of its own. So anyway, a baby is born to Vivien in the house after it has taken the souls of multiple people, and the said child makes a comeback as Michael Langdon, the antichrist - the child who spells doom for all. Constance had adopted him at the end of the season, and he had already murdered the babysitter.
Sarah Paulson's character from 'Coven' is also making a return. Here's the catch - she's playing Supreme Cordelia, Billie Dean Howard, as well as a new character, called Venable. 'AHS' has kept this character's description close to their chests so far. Tessa Farmiga is reprising her role as Zoe the witch, and she's also playing her 'Murder House' character Violet. 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.

'Coven' followed a group of witches who are dying out thanks to their least bothered Supreme Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange). Her daughter Cordelia takes matters into her own hands. Fiona senses a slight rebellion to dethrone her and goes on a murderous rampage to kill anyone who has any potential of becoming Supreme.
Sadly, she fails - thanks to Cordelia's awesome powers that show up as soon as she loses her eyesight. Her crimes come out in the open and Cordelia takes her rightful place on the throne. Of course, with 'AHS' it's never that simple. There are side plots about Queenie, Snow, and Madison - they are killed but come back to life. Multiple times. The season ends with things going back to normal and Cordelia leading the witches into the modern society.
The concoction: Apocalypse
One can only guess, but the rumor is that the 'Coven' characters actually come to the murder house to take shelter from the apocalypse outside. Michael has started the destruction, and he has an army and all the powers in the world. We think there may be some insane time travel or some serious black magic involved - the witches are capable of it, and Constance Langdon doesn't shy away from a fight.
