Angela Bassett Is Not Returning for ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’


American Horror Story: Coven’s Marie Laveau won’t be returning.  “I’m not in Horror Story. I’m not, not unless they get some brilliant idea. I love Coven though,” Bassett, 59, said during the Television Critics Association’s press tour.AngelaBassett-coven

Coven was the first time Bassett stepped into the Ryan Murphy universe and it earned her an Emmy nomination. The actress went on to star in the next three seasons, Freak Show, Hotel and Roanoke. However, the Voodoo Queen was still her favorite character.


“She’s very special to my heart. We got to shoot in New Orleans which is beautiful, that beautiful decay of a city. It was scary; it was funny; it was risqué; it was intriguing; it was historical,” she added.  Apocalypse premieres Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.  Follow “American Horror Story AfterWord” on Facebook for all breaking news.
