AceShowbiz - "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" starts to look bewitching. As filming on the new season of the FX anthology series is currently underway, series co-creator Ryan Murphy has unveiled the first look at the returning "Coven" stars for "Apocalypse".
"The Return. Cordelia, Stevie and Misty casting a bewitching spell," Murphy captioned an Instagram picture showing Sarah Paulson, Stevie Nicks and Lily Rabe on the set of the show. They stood at the end of the stairs, all wearing black ensembles.
Murphy posted another photo on Twitter showing more cast members, including Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe and Taissa Farmiga. He wrote in the caption, "The Coven Returns. What a thrilling night with the legend Stevie Nicks on the set of AHS."

Noticeably missing in the photos is Jessica Lange, who is confirmed to return for the upcoming eighth installment of the horror series. Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman and Billie Lourd are also set to return, while "Dynasty" alum Joan Collins joins the cast as the grandmother of Peters' character.
Executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall said at the show's TCA panel earlier this month that the season's title should be taken literally. "The story begins with the end of the world, and then our world begins," she said.
Other details are still kept under wraps, but Eichner recently promised that the new season would be "insane." He teased, "I'm not allowed to say a word but ... it's so insane. It's just so insane."
Porter, meanwhile, revealed that the show's depiction of apocalypse would be different than what fans expect. "I thought, because of 'The 100' and 'Apocalypse', that I knew everything about what life after an apocalypse would be-but Ryan Murphy and the writers of 'American Horror Story' have shown a whole other side of an apocalypse," she said. "So, I think people will be surprised and intrigued, and yet again, I think, blown away by the performances that I'm seeing."
"AHS: Apocalypse" is set to premiere September 12 on FX.
