Fans of American Horror Story are counting down the days until its next chapter. American Horror Story: Apocalypse will combine the worlds of Murder House and Coven into an unforgettable story. Much like previous seasons, certain things are being kept under wraps until it airs. We’re diving into some already known facts about this ratings juggernaut.

That’s A Wrap

Two veteran actors will be working behind the camera as directors this season. Sarah Paulson, who has earned five Emmy nominations from the show, will direct episode six. Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in the X-Men films, will direct an unannounced episode. This will be the directorial debut for both stars.

Triple Threat

Sarah Paulson is no stranger to playing multiple characters on one season of AHS. 2016’s Roanoke found her portraying Shelby Miller, Lana Winters, and Audrey Tindall. For Apocalypse, she’ll return to her old characters Cordelia Goode (Coven) and Billie Dean Howard (Murder House). Paulson will also play a new character called Venable.

Step Into The Horror

Joan Collins will make her AHS debut in Apocalypse. She’s slated to portray the grandmother of Evan Peters’ character. Collins has been a fan of the show for a long time, but landing on the series was a task. “When I first saw it, I went to my agent and said, ‘I love this show. Can you get me a role in it?’ Nothing,” she told Town & Country. Fortunately, she was offered the role during a run in with creator Ryan Murphy.

Lange looks at that specific AHS performance as a turning point in her 42-year career. “It reenergized me; it reenergized my career. There’s no shame in recognizing that,” she told The LA Times.

10 Years Of Terror

If you think season nine of American Horror Story will be the last one, think again. FX recently announced there will be a 10th season of this beloved series. In an interview with Deadline, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf has no clue if the show will go beyond 10 seasons. “Part of what’s cool about American Horror Story is its anthology nature. So it comeseriess down to whether Ryan and his collaborators, like (showrunner) Tim Minear, could come up with stories that they are excited about,” he said.
