Hello, folks! It’s the summer press tour for the Television Critics Assn. and the day started with good news as FX executives announced the renew of American Horror Story 10th season that will air in 2020.
Later, Sarah joined her American Horror Story co-star and executive producers to discuss the new season, Apocalypse, with the journalists. And we learned that Paulson will direct the sixth episode of the season, which will see the return of Jessica Lange and is going to play three characters: Venable, psychic Billie Dean Howard and Supreme witch Cordelia Foxx.
“The story begins with the end of the world and then our world begins,” executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall said of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse.”
Adding that the story for the eighth installment of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series “starts in the real world [in a] very tangible and familiar [place],” Woodall noted that in launching a tale about the apocalypse, what becomes important is “What’s the fantasy of what happens next?”
“If we’re still here, the world didn’t totally end,” she said.
“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” is the murder house and “Coven” crossover season, which means characters from both will appear. Paulson shared that she will actually be playing three characters this season, including psychic Billie Dean Howard and Supreme witch Cordelia Foxx.
“Cordelia is the Supreme for now. At the beginning of our story, that is the title she still holds. I don’t know how long that is going to last,” she admitted.
But given that “it’s the apocalypse in the truest sense of the word,” Paulson continues, the Cordelia audiences will meet in this season is not having as much fun as in the past.
“Enjoyment is a not possible at his particular juncture at the story. She’s not running around snorting cocaine like her mother and throwing young riches against the wall, though she may like to be doing that,” she said.
