Marie Laveau isn't one of the characters back for the crossover season of Apocalypse this season, but queen Angela Bassett wishes her character was back in and liked playing her and being in New Orleans.

I have [Season eight] on my DVR, but I haven’t seen any of it just yet," Angela said on "An Evening With Angela Bassett". "But I mean, come on. Where’s Marie Laveau? I’m even a little bit in my feelings that Marie didn’t come back."

No word on why from Ryan Murphy, who has her on his other show 9-1-1 that also starred Connie Britton (Murder House). Since Coven, Angela has been in Freakshow, Hotel, Roanoke, and directed an episode for Cult.
