‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ Teaser: The Hydrobath Looks Unpleasant (VIDEO)
The first teaser featured a nun dropping body parts in a field, while the second one involved a nun hanging a mysterious blue coat on the wall — in the shape of a crucifix. Now, this cryptic 14-second teaser gives viewers the first glimpse at the asylum and its seemingly torturous practices. The official description of the clip reads: “Are you ready for the birth of the new horror? The Asylum is open.”
What else can you expect from the second season of American Horror Story?
While details have been scarce, fans of the FX anthology can expect to see a few familiar faces in Season 2, which is set in an 1960s insane asylum. Season 1 star Jessica Lange will be back for more horror as the administrator of the asylum. But, this time she’ll be playing a nun, which would explain all of the nun imagery in these teasers.
In May, showrunner Ryan Murphy revealed that Evan Peters, who played “ultimate badass bad boy” Tate Langdon, will be “the hero of the show” in the second season. Murphy recently tweeted about Peters’ pivotal role: “Contrary to rumors, Evan is in all episodes of AHS this season.”
Fans can also expect Season 1 stars Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson to make an appearance in Season 2. “It’s not like the actors are playing similar parts. They’re going to look different, they’re going to sound different, they’re going to have different accents,” Murphy explained to Vulture. “It’s a different time period.”
Meanwhile, Chloe Sevigny, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and James Cromwell are joining the cast for the second season. Sevigny will play a woman whose husband sends her away to the asylum because she likes sex. And Levine told E!Online, “I’m newly married, and I go with my wife on our honeymoon,” Levine teased.
“I don’t want to tell you too much and actually I should shut my mouth because [Murphy] will freak out, but it’s gory…it sounds like so much fun and that’s why I wanted to do it,” he added. “I was like, this doesn’t even sound like acting; this sounds, like, hysterical, funny, dark and cool and right up my alley.”
The second season of American Horror Story will premiere in October.
