'American Horror Story' Spoilers: Evan Peters and Dylan McDermott Reunite in 'Apocalypse' Picture

The last time American Horror Story fans saw Evan Peters and Dylan McDermott appearing together on the show was all the way back in the FX series’ early beginnings on Season 1’s Murder House.  Flash forward some seven years later and the actors are returning to their debut roles on the show for Season 8’s Apocalypse.

McDermott gave fans their first look at him and Peter’s role reprisals in an Instagram snapshot posted on Wednesday. “Just like old times… @evanpeters @ahsfx @mrrpmurphy @ahs8fx,” the 56-year-old wrote alongside the image.

McDermott starred as Dr. Ben Harmon, a psychiatrist who relocates his family to a haunted house in a Los Angeles suburb. Tate Langdon, a high school shooter and ghost, played by Peters, is a patient of Ben’s—although Ben is not aware that Tate isn’t technically living. Later in the first season Tate, dressed as Rubber Man, rapes Ben’s wife Vivian (Connie Britton) and impregnates her leading to the birth of Michael Langdon, who is believed to be the Anti-Christ.

Britton is expected to appear in Season 8, along with the grown-up version of Michael (Cody Fern) who more than likely is still living with Ben and Vivian’s nosey, cunning and sneaky neighbor and Tate’s mother Constance Langdon, originally played by AHS alum Jessica Lange who is also expected to return.

As showrunners have previously mentioned, Apocalypse will follow the characters in the days following the world’s end. The plot will cross over Season 1’s Murder House with Season 3’s Coven, which followed a troupe of witches living in New Orleans.

A band of AHS stars are slated to make appearances on the upcoming season, including AHS regulars like Sarah Paulson—who’s slated to play three different characters—Kathy Bates, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Tassia Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Cheyenne Jackson and Stevie Nicks.
