The Harmons are back for American Horror Story: Apocalypse! Ryan Murphy has revealed the first photos of Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott (along with episode director Sarah Paulson) on the set of the eighth season. Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott played Ben and Vivien Harmon in American Horror Story: Murder House, the first season of the FX Networks series.
Their daughter, Violet Harmon, will also be back for AHS Apocalypse, as Taissa Farmiga (The Nun) will play both her Murder House and Coven characters in the upcoming season. Entertainment Weekly says that Farmiga is set to play both the Murder House character of Violet and the Coven character of witch Zoe.
We won’t spoil Murder House for you, in case you haven’t seen it, but Vivien’s child Michael Langdon will be back as well and is being played as a grown up by Cody Fern (American Crime Story). Jessica Lange will also make her much-anticipated return as Constance Langdon in Apocalypse.
The American Horror Story: Apocalypse cast members also include Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Cody Fern, Billie Lourd, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks. Dynasty star Joan Collins is on board, and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (UnREAL) and Kyle Allen (The Path) will guest star.
