Michael first appeared on "American Horror Story: Murder House". Constance Langson (Jessica Lange) eventually adopted the demonic kid who looks like an innocent child, but is actually the Anti-Christ. Michael was last seen as a toddler when he murdered his babysitter.

In addition to Fern, "Apocalypse" will also star Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman and Joan Collins. Peters and Paulson will be playing hairdressers, while Collins is portraying Peters' grandmother.
Set to be a crossover between "Murder House" and "Cover", "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" will arrive on September 12 on FX.
