Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott Join ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’

UPDATED: Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott are coming back to the scene of the crime.

The two stars, who appeared in the first season of executive producer Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story,” are set to return to the upcoming season, titled “Apocalypse,” Variety has learned.

On Saturday, Murphy tweeted a picture of the actors back on set, along with co-star Sarah Paulson, who is directing for the first time this season. “Connie, Sarah and Dylan. The Harmons are scaring up drama at The Murder House with Director Supreme Paulson,” Murphy wrote on Twitter.

Their return was highly anticipated, given that this season of FX’s anthology series is a crossover between the first season, “Murder House,” and season three, “Coven.”

Paulson had announced at the Television Critics Assn. press tour that she would direct the sixth episode of the season, while Evan Peters will also direct an episode this season.

This season, the eighth in the series, is a massive reunion of “AHS” stars: Along with Britton and McDermott, Jessica Lange will returning, as will fellow series alums Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Taissa Farmiga, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, and Stevie Nicks. “Assassination of GIanni Versace” star Cody Fern is also set to appear this season as Michael Langdon.

Langdon was the child of Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) and Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton) who was born during the events of “Murder House.” It was revealed in the epilogue of the season finale that Michael is in fact the Anti-Christ, which will no doubt tie in with the “Apocalypse” theme of the new season.

“Apocalypse” is set to premiere on FX on Sept. 12.

News of their return was first reported by The Wrap.
