American Horror Story: Apocalypse’s first teaser is finally here and, of course, it’s really creepy. If you have a problem with imagery of blood, fetuses, skulls, scorpions, bugs…and basically everything associated with horror, then you may want to go watch something else.
There’s no shot of any specific cast member but the season’s theme, the end of the world, you know, the apocalypse, is front and center.

Executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall teased a few more details at the TCA press tour last Friday (via Variety), revealing that the eighth season “begins with the end of the world and then our world begins.” So Apocalypse is essentially a Ryan Murphy fantasy of what happens after doomsday, and as Sarah Paulson confirmed, that subtitle reflects “the apocalypse in the truest sense of the word.”
The season will be a crossover between Season 1′ Murder House and Season 3′ Coven. In the new season, Paulson’s Cordelia will still be the Supreme, as she was at the end of Season 3, but she teased that it won’t last for long. She’ll also be playing Billie Dead Howard from Murder House (and Roanoke), in addition to a mystery third character.
The most exciting news for fans is that Jessica Lange will finally return to AHS after leaving the show following Season 4’s Freak Show. She’ll reprise her Constance Langdon from Murder House, likely alongside her now-grown grandson Michael, aka the Antichrist, to be played by Cody Fern. AHS: Apocalypse premieres on FX on September 12.
