Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and Joan Collins are all on board for the next season of hit horror series American Horror Story

Jessica Lange is returning to her role as creepy Constance Langdon for the next season of American Horror Story, which will be a crossover between previous seasons, Murder House and Coven. The character of Constance was last seen in the very first season of AHS back in 2011, raising her young grandson Michael, who appeared doomed to become a killer like his father.

The plot details for American Horror Story: Apocalypse are still top secret but executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall has teased, “the story begins with the end of the world, and then our world begins…”

It has been confirmed Jessica will be joined by various other returning cast members from previous seasons including Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts and Billie Lourd. Former Dynasty star Joan Collins will play the Grandmother of Evan Peters’s character, while singer Stevie Nicks will also make an appearance.

American Horror Story has already been renewed for another two seasons, meaning the series will run until at least 2020.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse begins on Thursday 27 September at 10:00pm on FOX
