More people have booked their ticket for American Horror Story‘s Apocalypse.
Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series on FX just added a bunch of characters to the new season, and we’re beyond excited.
Murphy, the show’s creator, made the tweet today, where he announced that “Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and…Stevie Nicks” would be coming back for the show’s monstrous eighth season.
Murphy then added that he was “so thrilled the family is together again!” and honestly, same.
Guess who’s coming back for AHS APOCALYPSE? Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and….Stevie Nicks. So thrilled the family is together again! #AHSApocalypse

That’s not the only exciting casting news to come from this past week. It was recently reported that Jessica Lange will be coming back to the show.
Lange will reprise her very first AHS role of Constance Langdon, who was last seen taking custody of her neighbors’ satanic offspring.
“I have the great pleasure of saying, yes, she will be back,” said co-star Sarah Paulson, during a press conference for the new season.
We recently found out that Cody Fern will be playing the adult version of Tate (Evan Peters)’s baby from the show’s first season. Of course, because this is AHS, Fern isn’t just playing the evil offspring of Tate, he’s playing the Anti-Christ.
We also know that the new season of the show will be the highly anticipated crossover between the show’s first and third seasons, meaning that fans are finally getting that Murder House and Coven crossover.
According to executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall, “The story begins with the end of the world. It starts in the real world. It’s very tangible, and it’s a familiar panic.”
As if the crossover wasn’t enough to have our hearts pounding, according to Billy Eichner, the show’s forthcoming season is going to be “so insane.” While we’re not sure what exactly makes the new season so insane, but we have a feeling it’s going to be a lot.
We might not know all the details, we do know that some pretty big names are returning: Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Joan Collins, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman.
FX has recently revealed that it has renewed American Horror Story for a 10th season, so it looks like we won’t be seeing the show’s actual end for a little while longer.
Apocalypse premieres Sept. 12 at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
