First American Horror Story: Apocalypse episode titles revealed
The first two episode titles from the highly anticipated series American Horror Story: Apocalypse were revealed today (via Bloody Disgusting) and the titles reveal a lot about how the series will be starting off. The first premiere episode title is “The End” while the episode following after is titled “The Morning After”.
It was also revealed that Jennifer Lynch (The Walking Dead) had directed the second episode in the series.
Series co-creator Ryan Murphy (Glee, Feud) has already confirmed that the new season will be a crossover between Season 1 (Murder House) and Season 3 (Coven). The two different seasons had dramatically different endings when they concluded, with Murder House ending with the impending arrival of the Antichrist and Coven ending with the witch school happily opening itself up to the public. It remains to be seen how the two will intertwine, or what the narrative will be.
It was previously announced most of the returning cast members would come back for the eighth season, including Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman and Billie Lourd, as well as franchise newcomers Joan Collins and Cody Fern. It remains to be seen how actors like Paulson or Peters will factor into the crossover, having played two different characters in both seasons.
The Emmy, Golden Globe and AFI Award-winning series from co-creators Murphy and Brad Falchuk aired its seventh season on FX last year. The sixth installment, Roanoke, recently received four Emmy Award nominations in the hairstyling, makeup and sound editing categories. The American Horror Story franchise has received 28 Emmy nominations and four wins over its previous six seasons. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television. American Horror Story was renewed for two more seasons back in January of 2017.
The new season of American Horror Story will debut on September 12.
