AMERICAN HORROR STORY Who is Michael Langdon and what is The Cooperative?

Last week’s premiere episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse introduced a creepily interesting returning character at the tail-end of the story. Michael Langdon, who was last seen as a murderous three-year-old in the anthology series’ very first season “Murder House,” is now all grown up and part of the mysterious Cooperative group that’s keeping this post-apocalyptic world going. There’s even a gnawing suspicion that this powerful group initiated the nuclear destruction that ended most of the world.

Lady Gaga plays a bloodsucker in American Horror Story: Hotel

In just a few weeks, Lady Gaga begins what could be multiple-season run on American Horror Story as a glamorous hotelier known as The Countess. Her youthful visage is maintained by a steady diet of blood, but Ryan Murphy says it wouldn’t be correct to call The Countess a vampire. “I prefer the term ‘ancient blood virus,'” he says. “It’s really a form of hemophilia, in a way. There are no capes and fangs.”
