Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts… cause Evan Peters is to return as Tate Langdon in a new American Horror Story.
Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton, stars of American Horror Story: Murder House have announced they are coming back for this season’s Apocalypse, which is set to be a crossover between Murder House and Coven.
The new season will be the eighth instalment of the popular show, created by Ryan Murphy.
The last time AHS fans saw of Tate was an extremely unhappy chap. After [SPOILER ALERT] Violet found out the knitty-gritty about her boyfriend (that he raped her mum and is a serial killer – sorry, bit out of the blue) she walked away to focus on her afterlife and spending more down time with her family.
Young Tate told Hayden he’d wait for Violet for eternity. Literally. Guy meant as a ghost.
It hasn’t been confirmed how many roles Peter will portray in Apocalypse but we know on top of Tate, he will be playing a hairdresser whose grandma will be played by Joan Collins, a newbie to the show.
While other details of the next season are scarce, it’s suspected the pair will be reprising their roles as married couple Ben and Vivien Harmon from season one.
In season one, the couple moved into the titular haunted house and, before (spoiler alert!) meeting her maker, Vivien gave birth to a child, Michael, who was adopted by their neighbour Constance, played by Jessica Lange.
Could the return of the two actors suggest a sort of resurrection? Or a flashback scenario? Or are they merely still happily living as ghosts in the murder house? Only time will tell.
Thankfully, a trailer for the new series has given us a taste of what to expect:
Screenwriter Ryan Murphy revealed that the next season will be the afore mentioned crossover of the show’s first season Murder House and third season Coven.
Coven, as well as previous series Asylum, focused on witches who survived the Salem Witch Trials and the horrors of a mental institute, respectively, with both receiving critical acclaim.
It’s also been confirmed actors Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who both starred in Murder House and Coven, will be back for the eighth season.
Other American Horror Story alumni to make a comeback include Kathy Bates, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, and the inimitable Jessica Lange.
