Now on its eighth season, American Horror Story seems to be on its way out. This latest season, amply titled Apocalypse, takes place in the aftermath of a nuclear war. AHS has always pushed the boundaries (maybe even too much) with the first episodes of each season, but this one particularly had fans more shocked than usual. The reason for this being how close to home it was; with the threat of nuclear warfare being more present than ever. Having said this, some people love Apocalypse and some people throw it away like they did with Cult. Either way, this season seems to provoke more of its fans than the past three combined.
I believe Murphy realized how fast AHS fell off after Jessica Lange left in Freak Show, so a lot of people saw seasons five, six, and seven as Murphy grasping for straws. Freak Show got the least of all the criticism. This was not the case for Hotel, Roanoke, and Cult, however, but for good reason. Having been a fan of the series since I was a freshmen in high school, AHS always found a way to balance the grotesque subject matter with a great cast of characters and creative storyline. However, after season four, the scale started to become extremely unbalanced.

It either put too much emphasis on the characters without a good enough story to back it up (Cult), overwhelmed you with violence (Roanoke), or focused too hard on the aesthetic of its sets (Hotel). Regardless of these critiques, I actually kinda liked Hotel and Roanoke and watched them all the way through. Cult, however, just got a little boring. Like all of its seven other seasons, the idea is on point, but this one specifically just fell off.
Because of the “failures” of seasons five, six, and seven, Murphy promised season eight was going to be a breath of fresh air (not literally). A crossover of Coven, Murder House, and Hotel, Murphy definitely delivered with Apocalypse. According to Bustle, a lot is still to come; with the return of Jessica Lange, and possibly the Harmon family from Murder House.
As for the continuation of the show, Fox CEO John Landgraf confirmed that there are two more seasons of American Horror Story on the way. That’s the beauty of the franchise, although Apocalypse takes place after the world has ended, the storyline doesn’t have to end, in fact, it could be the starting point for seasons to come.
