American Horror Story trailer will scare you off babies

Digital Spy (UK) logo Digital Spy (UK) 06/08/2018 Justin Harp

The first official trailer for American Horror Story: Apocalypse is here, and you're probably not ever going to look at babies the same way after watching it.

This sneak peek at the Murder House and Coven crossover season begins with a foetus quite literally clawing its way out of the womb and morphing into an atomic bomb exploding - draw your own conclusions about the symbolism there!

There's plenty of trademark American Horror Story grimness as well: someone in a gas mask stares blankly at the viewer, a claw slices into some rotten fruit and then scorpions emerge from that same fruit. Cheery, no?

Producers confirmed last week that American Horror Story: Apocalypse begins at the end of the world, as Cordelia Goode (Sarah Paulson) and her witches from Coven try to stop an antichrist from unleashing ultimate evil.

Paulson will also portray her Murder House character Billie Dean Howard as well as the new role of Venable. Jessica Lange returns for an episode directed by Paulson as Murder House's Constance Langdon.

This year's cast is set to include returning favourites Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman and Adina Porter, as well as new additions Dame Joan Collins and Unreal's Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman.

There's even more American Horror Story to come because FX previously renewed the show for season nine, and last week ordered a tenth anniversary season to potentially air in 2020.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse debuts on Sunday, September 9 on FX in the US, with a UK date to follow. Catch up on series 1-6 on Netflix, with season 7 available to buy on Amazon Prime Video.
