New Details For Season Two of 'American Horror Story' Revealed!
Get ready to be horrorfied in a whole new location -- and whole time time period!
The first season of American Horror Story took place during the present day at a haunted home in LA but Ryan Murphy, the show's creator, is switching things up big time for season two according to The Hollywood Reporter. FX's anthology series, which starred Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott for its freshman run, will feature a few returning key players, but they'll be playing completely new characters in an unspecified east coast locale.
So, we know that Jessica Lange is coming back, but who will she be playing?
While we know her as the creepy mother dearest Constance, at a panel promoting the series at the TV Academy in North Hollywood, Murphy dished:
"[Season 2] is set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica [Lange]."
Also, Murphy said that all returning characters, Evan Peters (Tate), Zachary Quinto (Chad), Lily Rabe (Nora) and Sarah Paulson (BIllie) will be playing the complete opposite of who they portrayed during season one.
"It's a completely different world and has nothing to do with season one; there's not a mention of season one. The second season is set in a completely different time period."
Though much of the fan favorite cast won't be regulars for the second season, Murphy did leave the door open for guest appearances by a select few.
As for Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine's role on the show? Murphy said:
"He's a sexy guy, so he needs to play a sexy guy -- but the guy that is different than who you think he would play. I pitched him the part and he listened, slack-jawed, and simply said, 'I'm in.' The second season is fun, sexy and baroque. It has a lot of meat to it; it's a really gritty part. He's with a girl, and they play characters called The Lovers."
Shooting is supposed to begin in July, with a premiere on FX in October. Will you be tuning in? Sound off in the comments!
