TV show description:
Each season of this anthology horror-drama series is conceived as a self-contained mini-series.
The first season takes place in 2011 and follows the Harmon family — psychiatrist Ben (Dylan McDermott), wife Vivien (Connie Britton) and their teenage daughter, Violet (Taissa Farmiga). They move from Boston to Los Angeles after Vivien gives birth to a stillborn baby and Ben has an affair.
The Harmons move into a restored mansion and soon meet the home’s former residents, the Langdons. They are Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange), her two children — Tate (Evan Peters) and Addie (Jamie Brewer) — and the disfigured Larry Harvey (Denis O’Hare).
Ben and Vivien try to rekindle their relationship, as Violet, suffering from depression, finds comfort with Tate. The Langdons and Larry frequently influence the Harmons’ lives, as the family discovers that the home is haunted by the ghosts of its former residents.
This TV series has not ended yet.
