American Horror Story: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott Return!

at . Comments

American Horror Story: Apocalypse may well be the most highly anticipated season of the series yet. 

From exciting casting announcements to exciting plot details about the new episodes, the news has been coming out fast and furiously of late. 

The latest announcement may be the biggest yet:

Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott are returning to the series for Apocalypse, according to The Wrap. 

Britton, Connie

There's no word yet on who they will be playing, but given that they appeared together on American Horror Story: Murder House, which is crossing over with American Horror Story: Coven to form the new season, we think it's fair to assume they will be playing Ben and Vivien Harmon again. 

The primary focus of Apocalypse will be on the world ending, and the role Michael Langdon, Vivien's son, played in all of the drama.

American Horror Story: Murder House concluded with both Ben and Vivien dead, but their spirits were still drawn to that eerie house.

Britton followed American Horror Story up with roles in Nashville, SMILF and 9-1-1, while McDermott moved over to lead Stalker before appearing on LA to Vegas. 

It looks like there's a long time jump on the way because Cody Fern will be taking on the role of Michael for the new season.

American Horror Story Quotes

I am the queen of every hive. I am the fire on every hill. I am the shield over every head. I am the spear of battle. Who but I am both the tree and the lightning that strikes it?

I knew you for such a short time, and I’ve missed you forever.
