TV: American Horror Story – Apocalypse

Premiered: September 12, 2018

On: FX

Starring: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Cody Fern, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Kathy Bates, Billy Eichner, Kyle Allen, Ash Santos, Erika Ervin, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Joan Collins, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Jon Jon Briones, Billy Porter, BD Wong, Carlo Rota, Lily Rabe, Stevie Nicks, Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Naomi Grossman, Mena Suvari, Lance Reddick, Jamie Brewer, Sandra Bernhard, Harriet Harris, Angela Bassett & Jessica Lange

Perfectly combining the first (Murder House) and third (Coven) seasons of the show, Apocalypse was a much-needed breath of not-so-fresh air to American Horror Story.

When the apocalypse comes, Coco (Leslie Grossman) and her assistant Mallory (Billie Lourd) are brought to a survival bunker. The arrival of Michael Langdon (Cody Fern) proves to be disastrous for all survivors.

The acting in this season is top notch. Fern is a welcome addition to the cast. Series regulars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates all portray both new and familiar characters allowing for quite a bit of acting range. But the best is the long-awaited return of favorite Jessica Lange as Constance Langdon. Lange reminds you of why you fell in love with the show in the first place.

Final say: The apocalypse never looked so good. ★★★★★
