Per TVLine, these eps will encompass what was to be the first half of its originally conceived broadcast run. “We were going to have two parts to it anyway, so we’ll just tell a really strong, gnarly first part,” co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich said. Doing so, said co-showrunner Joe Henderson, “lets us concentrate the story and focus it, and that’s what’s really exciting about this. We have a really strong first half that is now going to make for an amazing story.”
Cast additions for S4 include Inbar Lavi (“Imposters”) as Eve, Graham McTavish (“Preacher”) as Father Kinley, and newcomer Vinessa Vidotto as Lucifer and Amenadiel’s sister Remiel.
Next is the skinny on what Ryan Murphy and Co. are up to with regard to “American Horror Story” Season 9. Per usual, Murphy used Instagram for the first big announcement with FX providing the teaser on YouTube:
Yep, it looks like a slasher theme is heading our way or, at the very least, a pretty cool look back at 1984, when the likes of Freddy, Jason, Toxie, and the Children of the Corn ruled the box office. So far we know that Evan Peters won’t be back, but Emma Roberts will (and probably Sarah Paulson too). One newcomer has been announced: Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy will portray Roberts’ boyfriend.
