Calling all nightmare collectors and scream queens. It is time to reconvene—American Horror Story: Apocalypse is nearly upon us.
If you still have the resounding failure that was AHS: Cult freshly seared into memory, you may be hesitant to check back into Ryan Murphy’s hellscape anthology. Luckily, the first teaser for Season 8 features a promising return to the dark and twisty… minus the Cheetos.
Per tradition, the teaser doesn’t reveal much beyond the established apocalyptic theme. However, the overall atmosphere, graphics, and anachronistic soundtrack are giving strong Murder House vibes. And that makes sense considering the confirmed Murder House and Coven crossover set to unfold this season.
With the return of series’ favorite Jessica Lange announced late last week, the horror narrative’s inaugural foray into a single universe seems primed to dazzle. But AHS fans have been burned before… In the words of the illustrious Constance Langdon, “Don’t make me kill you again.”
American Horror Story: Apocalypse premieres Wednesday, September 12 on FX.
