made her long-awaited return to Ryan Murphy
’s “American Horror Story
” last year, after leaving the FX
anthology series at the end of its fourth season in 2015. And while Lange — a fan favorite in the franchise — hadn’t planned on coming back to the show, she couldn’t resist the opportunity to reprise her Season 1 role as failed actress-turned murderer Constance Langdon.
Because “Apocalypse” brought back characters and story lines from the “Murder House” and “Coven” seasons, it pushed “AHS” from the Emmys’ limited series to drama series categories.
To bring her back, she added, Murphy made her an offer she couldn’t refuse.
