American Horror Story: Apocalypse has added Cody Fern to play Michael Langdon aka the anti-Christ.

We last saw Michael Langdon – the child of Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) and Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton) – as a child covered in the blood of his babysitter while under the care of his grandmother Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange) who adopted the demonic child at the end of season one Murder House.

And now, series creator Ryan Murphy has revealed the Australian actor Cody Fern – who previously starred in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story – is set to play the adult version of the demonic child.

He tweeted: “Excited to announce Cody Fern will be playing the role of Michael Langdon in American Horror Story: Apocalypse. Premiere September 12 on FX.”

Murphy sent fans crazy when he confirmed the upcoming season Apocalypse is to be a crossover between Murder House and season three Coven.

Actors Sarah Paulson and Peters, who appeared in both seasons, are known to be returning to the show this year.

Emma Roberts is set to reprise her role as Coven’s scene-stealing Madison Montgomery, the coke-addled Hollywood starlet and witch who tore through Miss Robichaux’s Academy like a telekinetic Regina George on steroids back in 2013.  

Kathy Bates and Cheyenne Jackson will also be returning to the highly anticipated season alongside Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd and Adina Porter.

It’s also known that Dame Joan Collins will be joining the cast and this week Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Kyle Allen will also be starring as guest roles in the new series.

The new series is set to be released on September 12 this year.
