Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott will be back for the upcoming season of FX’s American Horror Story, called “Apocalypse.” Britton and McDermott starred in Horror Story’s first season as married couple Vivien and Ben Harmon, who moved into the haunted home that gave Season 1 its name. It’s not yet confirmed that the actors will be reprising those specific roles, but given that Season 8 is titled American Horror Story: Apocalypse and will merge the worlds of Murder House and Coven (Season 3), it seems likely. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy recently shared a photo from the Season 8 set, which reunited Coven stars Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Taissa Farmiga and Stevie Nicks. Also set to appear in Apocalypse are AHS alumni Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Evan Peters, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson and Jessica Lange. American Horror Story: Apocalypse premieres Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 10/9c on FX.
