The Trailer for American Horror Story: Apocalypse Is Crammed Full of Naughty Delights

We don’t know much about Kathy Bates’ apparently new character, except that she’s pro-Satan.

American Horror Story: Cult spent an entire season reminding us of the very real nightmare enveloping all of us after the 2016 election. Though the next season—which will feature characters from previous AHS seasons “Murder House” and Coven—is titled Apocalypse, this first trailer looks fun and campy as hell.

Something (the rapture? Where’d the airline pilot go? Where’d the radiation contamination come from?) throws the world into total chaos, and the characters group up at “Outpost Three,” a place they can never leave, and a place where “unauthorized copulation” is strictly forbidden. That’ll definitely be broken, probably in the first episode. The plot, of course, has yet to be revealed, but with the Rubber Man, Joan Collins, a grown-up Michael Langdon (a.k.a. the Antichrist), Kathy Bates praising the Dark Lord, and multiple Sarah Paulsons running around, pretty much anything is possible. AHS: Apocalypse premieres Sept. 12, one week from tonight, on FX.

DISCUSSION

This show is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. The cast is always great and the story is entertaining even if it gets convoluted and unresolved.

I was not totally crazy with the last season but I must be one of the few that really liked Roanoke. I enjoyed the format it had, both an homage and a criticism of those stupid murder shows that your in-laws have playing in the background when you visit.
