Is it the end of the world as we know it for American Horror Story? You may think that, judging from the new American Horror Story: Apocalypse title that was just announced over by FX leading up to the show’s premiere on September 12.
The first key art for this new season below, and suffice it to say, it’s a little bit strange in between the nails and the baby. It gets progressively stranger the longer that you look at it, but the red-and-black color scheme is meant to be a very clear nod to American Horror Story: Murder House, the very first season that aired on FX many years ago. Apocalypse is meant to be a crossover season between this edition of the show and American Horror Story: Coven, which was the third iteration of the series to come on the air.
As for whether or not we imagine this iteration of the show being especially successful, we’re in a position right now where it is probably a little bit too early to know one way or the other. Yet, we do think this is an ambitious risk that is probably worthwhile for FX. After all, this marks an opportunity for the network to do something that is right in the vein of what they love to do: Strange, thought-provoking, and in the end, exceptionally creepy. At the same time, it’s also nostalgic and an obvious callback to everyone who first watched American Horror Story and enjoyed it when it first came on the air. If the network can figure out a way in which to recruit some of these people, they likely recognize that they’ll have an enormous hit on their hands.
