Sarah Paulson’s brand new character in American Horror Story season eight has been revealed.
We already knew that the veteran actress would be playing three(!) characters in the next season of the hit anthology series – if anyone could do it, it’s Sarah – including Murder House’s Billie Dean, Coven’s Cordelia, and a brand new character called Venable.
This week, a fresh teaser has been released for season eight, which is sub-titled Apocalypse, and it introduces viewers to what we’re assuming is the Emmy-winner’s mysterious new character Venable.
“Now is your chance to be one of the few remaining,” she says in the creepy video. “This is your chance to survive. We’ll find you soon.”
The video instructs fans to visit thebeginningisnear.tv to win the chance to attend an “exclusive AHS: Apocalypse experience” – although it’s worth pointing out that you need to be a resident of the United States to enter.
Check out the new teaser (and Sarah’s STUNNING contouring) below.

Are you gagged? Because we’re gagged.
It was recently revealed that fan favourite Jessica Lange, who made her last appearance on the show in season four (Freak Show), will be making her long-overdue comeback for Apocalypse as Constance Langdon, in an episode directed by Sarah Paulson.
Show creator Ryan Murphy has already confirmed that Apocalypse will be the much-rumoured crossover between season one (Murder House) and season three (Coven), so it makes sense for Jessica to return as Constance, who was last seen looking after anti-christ child Michael.
We also know some previously confirmed details about other cast members who’ll be returning, including series regulars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates, as well as Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman.
They’ll be joined by Hollywood legend Joan Collins, who will make her American Horror Story debut as the “glamorous” grandmother to Evan’s character, who’s been described as a ‘comedic hair stylist’.
Jeffrey Bowyer Chapman (UnReal) and Kyle Allen (The Path) have also been cast as guest stars.
