American Horror Story Season 8 Teaser: The Signs of the 'Apocalypse' Are Upon Us!

Following up on news out of their Televison Critics Association (TCA) summer press event that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story had been renewed for a 10th season and that Jessica Lange is returning to the series for Apocalypse, FX has released the first official teaser for the horror anthology's upcoming eighth season.

While it's brief and clearly lacking in anything that would reflect directly on the season's storyline, it's clear that the series will live up to its "Apocalypse" theme — and raises more questions as to what roles the players from Murder House and Coven will play to hinder — or help — the antichrist himself, Michael Langdon (Cody Fern):

FX broke some great news for American Horror Story fans at this year's TCA summer press event: that the horror anthology series had been renewed for a 10th season (FX Networks CEO John Landgraf: "He (Murphy) asked for a 10th season of American Horror Story which we were happy to give to him"); and that Lange would be reprising her Murder House role as Constance Langdon, appearing in the sixth episode – which marks Sarah Paulson's directorial debut on the show (Paulson: "I have the great pleasure of saying, yes, she (Lange) will be back").

So far, Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, and Leslie Grossman are set to return to Murphy's horrific universe. Joan Collins (Dynasty) is joining the cast as Peters's grandmother; Fern (House of Cards) is joining as adult Michael Langdon; and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (UnReal) and Kyle Allen (The Path) are set for guest appearances. Murphy also confirmed that Coven's Taissa Farmiga and Gabourey Sidibe have been invited to return and suggested that Lady Gaga's "original supreme" would also be playing a part in the crossover.
