The Coven witches will return to American Horror Story

You can’t keep a good witch down! After returning for American Horror Story: Apocalypse, the witches from Ahs: Coven will return again. While creator Ryan Murphy says it won’t be next season, the still-untitled season 9, he does have something special planned for the fan-favorite spellcasters.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with the show’s creator at his Hollywood Walk of Fame event. They asked him about seeing more Cordelia Goode (Sarah Paulson) and the other witches in future installments.

“The witches will be back,” he revealed. “Not next season, though, but we have something really fun planned.”

"You can't bring me here and expect me to just hate her like you do." FilmRise has debuted the first official trailer for an indie family drama titled Mountain Rest, which is the feature directorial debut of a music video director named Alex O Eaton. The film is about an aging actress named Ethel, played by Frances Conroy, who has sequestered herself in a cabin in a small mountain town for years.

Official Joker Synopsis Promises a Never-Before-Seen Cautionary Tale

The Joker origin movie has finally been giving an official plot synopsis. Up to this point, the studio has been relatively quiet when it comes to the details on this particular project. In the world of DC Comics, the Joker has always had something of an ill-defined origin story in order to help keep the mystery surrounding the character alive. That's going to change with this movie and, based on this plot synopsis, it sounds like there could be quite a few surprises in store. The synopsis reads as follows.

"Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale."

Previously, a brief logline had been released which largely mirrors what is being revealed in this synopsis which,

Sarah Paulson confesses to stealing one item from ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ set: ‘It’s now hanging in my house’
Sarah Paulson just confessed on Instagram that she stole one item from the set of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” and that “it’s now hanging in my house.” Can you guess what it is? Here’s a hint: the object in question was spotted in the final minutes of Season 8 when Paulson’s Cordelia Goode and Billie Lourd‘s Mallory reunited in the alternate timeline. Paulson joked that she “literally shot the scene, took it off the wall and put it in my car.”

So what did Paulson run off with? The hand-drawn painting of Myrtle Snow, of course! See Paulson’s Instagram post below.

6 Big Questions the ‘Ahs: Apocalypse’ Finale Didn’t Answer

  • The Wrap
6 Big Questions the ‘Ahs: Apocalypse’ Finale Didn’t Answer
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the finale of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse.”)

We wondered last week how exactly Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the rest of the creative team on “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” could possibly finish up this whole thing in just one episode. And in Wednesday’s finale, we got our answer: not that well. The “Ahs: Apocalypse” season finale speeds through the resolution to what was a pretty epic tale, leaving big plot threads dangling and not really paying off on so many points the show had set up early on.

So in order to work through our frustration with the finale, let’s take a look at the parts of the episode, and the season as a whole, that just don’t make sense now that it’s finally all over.

‘Ahs: Apocalypse’ Finale: It’s a Time-Traveling Bloodbath As We Say Goodbye To Season 8

‘Ahs: Apocalypse’ Finale: It’s a Time-Traveling Bloodbath As We Say Goodbye To Season 8
Spoiler Alert: The following article contains details of tonight’s season finale of American Horror Story Apocalypse.

In what could be the ultimate crossover event in American Horror Story history — actually, it’s probably the only one. There was plenty of time traveling, some surprise appearances from familiar faces (hello Marie Laveau!), a lot of bloodshed, and yes, even more time traveling. As we saw the previous seasons of Murderhouse, Coven and even a smidge of Hotel converge, it was a raucous, campy time that was totally on brand for the Ryan Murphy FX franchise.

The finale brought us back in time closer to the start of the season. At Outpost 3, Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) and the gang brought Dinah (Adina Porter), Coco (Leslie Grossman), and Mallory (Billie Lourd) back from the dead. And of course, Michael (Cody Fern), the fabulous anti-christ doing

‘American Horror Story’ Finale Recap: ‘Apocalypse Then’ Brings Everything Full Circle

‘American Horror Story’ Finale Recap: ‘Apocalypse Then’ Brings Everything Full Circle
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Apocalypse Then,” the finale episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse.”

Going into “Apocalypse Then,” it seemed nearly impossible “American Horror Story” could wrap things up in one final episode. But it managed to pull it off, though the finale moved at a breakneck speed in order to do so. And it even got another return to “Murder House” in before the hour-plus episode was up.

First, in the wake of the Coven’s annihilation at Michael Langdon’s (Cody Fern) hands, Myrtle Snow (Frances Conroy) paid a visit to Mutt and Jeff and demanded that Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt (Leslie Grossman) and her family be given spots in outpost No. 3 as part of the plan to hide a few witches there during the end of the world. This would allow Mallory (Billie Lourd) to remain safe while fully coming into her powers.

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Fire and Reign,” the ninth episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse.”

As “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” continued to work its way back to the actual apocalypse that kicked off the season, the penultimate episode, “Fire and Reign,” revealed why there only seemed to be six witches at the bunker in present day and also how the apocalypse came to be in the first place.

The show picked right back up with the two billionaire twits, Mutt and Jeff — and yes, those really are their names. Jeff was so sick of how awful the world is that he wanted to just burn it all down and start over. As luck would have it, he and Mutt were meeting with the Cooperative shortly. Ms. Venable (Sarah Paulson) asked to play a more important role in their company by meeting with the Cooperative too,

Why American Horror Story: Apocalypse Is One of the Best Seasons Yet
Badass women with power. Glorious wigs. Hilarious one-liners. Enviable fashion. Familiar faces. Fun characters. A streamlined story that makes sense. American Horror Story: Apocalypse has all of that and then some, making it one of the franchise's best seasons yet. Using characters from American Horror Story: Coven and American Horror Story: Murder House, characters that are familiar to fans, the series immediately presented an open door to both lapsed viewers and those who have been in it for the long haul. The appeal of seeing witches Cordelia Goode (Sarah Paulson), Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts) and Myrtle Snow (Frances Conroy) battle the Antichrist, Michael Langdon (Cody Fern), was just too good to pass up for some...

Which TV stars were skunked by Golden Globes just one year after winning? Jennifer Aniston, Andy Samberg, Taraji P. Henson …

  • Gold Derby
The Golden Globes giveth and the Golden Globes taketh away. Since the turn of the century several prominent TV stars have been embraced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association one year, only to be completely skunked the next, including Jennifer Aniston (“Friends”), Andy Samberg (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”). As the TV landscape keeps changing and a record number of shows premiere each year, we can expect this unfortunate pattern to continue because there’s simply not enough room for everyone to be recognized. So what might this mean for the current crop of returning Golden Globe champs?

‘American Horror Story’ Recap: ‘Traitor’ Leans into Mallory as the Next Supreme
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Traitor,” the seventh episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse.”

It was always going to be hard for “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” to top the returns of Jessica Lange, Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott last week — and this week struggled a bit to meet that level of excitement. Fortunately, they saved a couple of other fun returns for “Traitor,” plus added some satisfying deaths and leaned hard into the idea that Mallory (Billie Lourd) is the next Supreme.

After Madison (Emma Roberts) reported back to the coven about her findings at Murder House, Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) decided they needed to take any available resource in order to stop the antichrist (Cody Fern) from becoming the new Supreme. So she tracked down Dinah Stevens (Adina Porter), a voodoo practitioner who took her to see Papa Legba (Lance Reddick).

He said he could help her stop Michael,
