American Horror Story: Apocalypse will premiere September 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.

Be sure to check out American Horror Story: Apocalypse when it makes its on-screen debut Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 10/9C on FX.

Series co-creator Murphy (Glee, Feud) has already confirmed that the new season will be a crossover between Season 1 (Murder House) and Season 3 (Coven).

" I don't know", Landgraf told Deadline. I think the eighth cycle, which is now in production, is awesome and insane, and I think the fans will really like it. "So, it comes down to whether Ryan and his collaborators, like [executive producer] Tim Minear, could come up with stories that they are excited about". In adults 18-49, each of the last five installments of American Horror Story has ranked among cable's Top 5 scripted series in the year in which it aired. She will be reprising her role as Constance Langdon from the show's very first season in an episode directed by Sarah.

The network announced today at its TCA summer press tour appearance that it has ordered American Horror Story Season 10. Although there is no word on who Lange will be playing in Apocalypse, it is a major piece of casting news for the upcoming season.

It makes complete sense why the Oscar victor would return as Constance. The renewal isn't surprising in the sense that American Horror Story is one of FX's most reliable performers and generates tons of online ink on social media and in episodic reviews.

Lange exited Ryan Murphy's FX phenom at the conclusion of Season 4 (aka Freak Show).

The longtime girlfriend of actress Holland Taylor was joined onstage by executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Adina Porter, Billie Lourd, and Leslie Grossman. Murphy and his creative team can craft each season to capitalize on popular trends (reality TV and crime documentaries in Season 6, Roanoke) and current events (the U.S. presidential election in Season 7, Cult).
