Ah, young ghostly love.
“American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy teased the reunion of “Murder House” characters Tate (Evan Peters) and Violet (Taissa Farmiga) in a new behind-the-scenes pic from the “Apocalypse” set on Thursday.
“Tate and Violet. Together forever? AHS:Apocalypse, FX Sept 12,” Murphy captioned a shot of the two actors back in character on the set of the upcoming eighth installment in the anthology series.
Last we saw of the two dead teenagers, Violet had told her former lover to “go away,” banishing him from her sight, as she was stuck living in the Murder House with her also deceased parents, Vivien (Britton) and Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) till the end of time. But that means Tate is now unable to come near Violet, so we’re unclear on how the two will reunite on Season 8, a crossover between “Murder House” (Season 1) and “Coven” (Season 3).
Allow us to also remind you that in Season 1, Vivien died giving birth to twins after being raped by Tate. Tate’s mother, Constance (Jessica Lange), adopted the one living baby, his demonic offspring Michael, who was last seen giggling as a toddler, covered in blood, after murdering his babysitter in the Season 1 finale.
Farmiga and Peters are among the long list of “AHS” alums who are returning for “Apocalypse,” including Britton (exclusively reported by TheWrap), McDermott, Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks. Add to that series newcomers Joan Collins and Cody Fern, as an adult Michael Langdon, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for one serious end of days story.
Along with reprising their “Murder House” roles, Farmiga and Peters will both be playing a second character this season, with Farmiga returning as witch Zoe (“Coven”) and Peters portraying Collins’ grandson, a hairdresser.

“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 10/9c on FX.
