American Horror Story: Apocalypse preview

FX

Surprise, b*tch! They're back -- "with a vengeance."

So promises "The Return Preview" for "American Horror Story: Apocalypse." This is the first promo to show actual footage from Season 8, aka the long-awaited crossover of "Murder House" Season 1 and "Coven" Season 3.

It's amazing.

The preview shows so many of our returning favorites -- Jessica Lange! Taissa Farmiga! Dylan McDermott! Rubber Man! Emma Roberts, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, etc. We also get a glimpse of Cody Fern as the older Michael Langdon/Antichrist. The video also dares puts queen Joan Collins (playing Evan Peters' grandmother) through some kind of traumatic plane crash.

Is it the end of the world? The title would suggest so. And a quote in the trailer says so. Plus Madison is back, so ... if hell hasn't frozen over, it's close.
