“Young, passionate men in form-fitting costumes; folks who go by the name “witch”; monsters gleefully planning the end of civilization. No, this isn’t the Marvel Cinematic Universe—it’s the weird, twisted world of American Horror Story. It may not be as intricately plotted and intertwined as the MCU, but the world of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series is full of enough recurring themes and characters to fill whole racks full of comics. And the latest installment, Apocalypse is as close to Infinity War as anything in the Murphy-verse to date.
So, does that mean that if you haven’t watched the seven installments leading up to tonight’s Season 8 premiere you’ll be totally in the dark? Probably not. AHS is still an anthology show, after all, and each season typically manages to stand on its own. But all of the seasons do share a common mythology and Apocalypse is being billed as the long-awaited merging of the show’s premiere season—later named Murder House—and it’s Heathers-with-witches season, Coven. So while some seasons may have referenced others—Murder House foreshadowed Roanoke, for example—this one should have far more connective tissue than most. (We say “should have” because, frankly, it’s hard to know anything for sure; Murphy loves to tease, but he hates to spoil.)
What do you have to know going into the new season? It’s impossible to know for sure, but there are a few things to keep in mind as you sit down to watch Apocalypse.
Since the latest season of AHS is a crossover, there are a few faces definitely returning. For one, we know that Ben and Vivien Harmon (Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton, respectively) will be back as the family who initially moved into Murder House in Los Angeles in Season 1. Also back for more is Taissa Farmiga, who played the couple’s daughter, Violet, but based on photos posted to Instagram from the set, she’ll be back as her Coven character, Zoe Benson. She could, however, play multiple roles. Murphy-verse stalwart Sarah Paulson has appeared in every season of AHS, and according to the teasers for Apocalypse will be leading the current one, so actors taking on many characters will likely be standard this time around.
‘Game of Thrones’ drops stunning first Season 8 trailer
The video itself doesn’t have new footage, but recaps the past seven seasons and the journey of everyone in Westeros until this point. But as we know, everything so far has been child’s play compared to the war between the living and the dead.
“There’s only one war that matters,” Jon Snow narrates, a quote from Season 7. “And it is here.”
We can’t wait. #ForTheThrone”
The new season of ‘Outlander’ is one of its best
‘Outlander’ finds a new home in America for Season 4
Another season of Outlander — another leap into relocation to new political upheaval.
“After four years of this pattern, you’d think the gimmick would get old. But the time-traveling period drama might’ve actually found its most fascinating and fertile ground yet in the new frontier of Season 4’s colonial America.
The reunited Frasers landed on American shores after last season’s almost-fatal trek around the world. And as the couple now seeks to make a home in the Land of the Free, they come to discover that its citizen are a lot more backwards than the beautiful but dangerous woods they’re trying to tame.
It might be the bias of actually living in the country that Outlander is now set in. But by delving into the seedy underbelly of America’s ugly origins, the show has never felt more relevant than it does now in 2018. Slavery, Native American genocide, the dangers of being gay: Outlander Season 4 does not hesitate to entangle itself in the diciest territories of this country’s legacy.
Of course, Outlander never shied away from the discomfort of how history can collide with modern sensibilities………………………………………”
Trailer for ‘True Detective’ Season 3 is here
“HBO’s True Detective has always been half about solving crimes and half about the people who solve them. This first trailer for Season 3 of the hit show promises to delve even deeper into the mystery of Mahershala Ali’s detective character by flashing backwards and forwards to different periods of his life, and how one missing child case has wracked his conscience for as long as he can remember.
