American Horror Story Season 2 to See Two or Three Actors Return


Progress is being made on American Horror Story season 2.  And if you followed co-creator Ryan Murphy’s advice and watched the episode entitled “Birth” searching for the clues to season 2 that he apparently put in there, good for you.  For those of us lacking an eagle eye, we’re pretty much in the dark as to which direction the series is going to take next season.

Murphy has previously stated the show will feature a new haunting each season, meaning the story of the Harmons is indeed done.  But some interesting information has spilled out of the TCA (Television Critics Association) Press Tour this morning.

Rick Porter at Zap2It reports from today’s FX panel discussion:

“Two or possibly three” American Horror Story actors will continue next season (as new characters). Casting process on now.

Jessica Lange will likely return as Constance, but who – from season one – could possibly be back in a new role?  Are they thinking supporting cast members, perhaps?  Those beyond the Harmon family?  Or will Murphy be asking Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Taissa Farmiga to return, but as new characters?

This is a very interesting experiment they’re playing with here.  More on this as it develops!
