American Horror Story: Apocalypse Gets First Full Preview
It's time to get ready for "The Return" in the first new footage from the upcoming season.

It's time for worlds to collide (and end) in the first full preview of American Horror Story's 8th season, Apocalypse. This new preview is the first one to show footage from the upcoming season, including our first look at Cody Fern's Michael Langdon, also known as the antichrist, along with Evan Peters' new character and a few scenes of the actual devastation wrought in by the apocalypse.
The preview leans heavily on the crossover theme, highlighting Murder House and Coven characters who will be making their return, including Emma Roberts and Jessica Lange. The new footage flashes by fairly quickly but the teases are substantial. We see a quick glimpse at a very evil-looking Michael along with a nuclear explosion and its fallout. The end of the world isn't necessarily the end, however, as witches and ghosts join our new characters in the aftermath of the destruction.
Little is known at this time about what specifically happens, what the stakes are, and what each character's motivations could be, but it's nice to finally get a real preview of the upcoming season before the new season kicks off next week. American Horror Story returns with its latest story, Apocalypse, on September 12th.
