McDermott and Britton will reprise their roles of Ben and Vivien Harmon from the inaugural first season, Murder House. The Harmons moved into the titular haunted house and wound up as ghosts themselves in the end. Before she died, Vivien gave birth to a child, Michael. Their neighbour Constance (Jessica Lange) then adopted the evil spawn of Vivien and ghost Tate (Evan Peters). In Season 8 titled Apocalypse, Cody Fern (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) will play the grownup version of Michael who is believed to be the Antichrist.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse premieres Wednesday, Sept. 12. Excited to see the Murder House/Coven crossover season? Weigh in below after watching a recent promo introducing Sarah Paulson’s character this season.
