American Horror Story: Apocalypse is getting the family back together. 

Co-creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to announce return cast members for the franchise’s upcoming installment. Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks will be reuniting for the AHS highly anticipated crossover season. 

Murphy tweeted that he’s “thrilled the family is together again!” for Apocalypse, a crossover between season one Murder House and season three Coven crossover which will premiere on FX on September 12. 

This announcement comes just days after it was confirmed by star Sarah Paulson during the 2018 Television Critics Association press tour that fan favorite Jessica Lange will return for the upcoming installment of the horror anthology.

So fans know for sure that the cast includes (but isn’t limited to), Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Billy Eichner, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Leslie Grossman, Cheyenne Jackson, Cody Fern and Joan Collins.

Not surprisingly, the first teaser is creepy and cryptic. While it does not include any shots of the cast it does feature eerie images of a baby which is an additional hint to the storyline which includes the return of an older more evil Michael Langdon (Cody Fern). Lange’s character is Michael’s grandmother, an evil baby who will most likely bring about the apocalypse.
