American Horror Story will bring the end of the world with Season 8's theme, Apocalypse. Before evil overpowers mankind though, the FX series will bring together some of the most beloved and terrifying characters of the franchise by crossing-over the plots of Season 1's Murder House and Season 3's Coven.

It's been long known AHS alumni Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates will star as leads on the upcoming season, and it was revealed Jessica Lange is set to make her grand return to AHS after being absent since Season 7's Freak Show. Show creator Ryan Murphy revealed even more former AHS cast members are slated to make appearances throughout the new season.

Actors Tassia Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and even legendary singer Stevie Nicks are set to appear on Season 8 of the show, Murphy announced on Twitter on Tuesday. The women will likely reprise their roles as the witches of Coven.

Some of the cast members, who appeared at the 2018 Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour Friday, did spill a few beans about what and who fans can expect to see on Apocalypse. Check out all the info out so far about Season 8's main characters below.

Cody Fern as Michael Langdon: There is a little demon baby covered in blood on the Apocalypse poster, and the Season 8 teaser video features a creepy-looking devil fetus. More than likely, both disturbing images represents Fern's character Michael, who will appear on the show in grown-up form as—wait for it—the anti-Christ. Longtime fans may remember the character Michael back in Season 1. He was the child Vivien (Connie Britton) conceived after being raped by Tate (Peters). Michael only appeared as a toddler on the series and was last seen murdering his babysitter.

Jessica Lange as Constance Langdon: Murder House viewers may also recall Lange's character Constance adopting Michael at the end of Season 1. Well, now fans of the show will finally find out how Constance handled her grandmotherly duties by raising the demon child from a boy to a man.
