'American Horror Story' co-creator Ryan Murphy has been revealing some pretty rad deets on the future planned third season of the twisted FX TV show. Murphy spoke during a Q&A session following a special screening of the finale of 'American Horror Story: Asylum'. He'll be sitting down with his writing staff this coming Monday to start working on ideas for the third season which will once again start afresh with a new location, new story and brand new characters. He has already confirmed that actors Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson (below) will all be returning to the third season to once again take on new and (likely!) further challenging roles each different from their last. Murphy also stated that actors from season one (who didn't return for season two) will have a place in season three.
"I'm done with aliens," Murphy laughed when asked about season three. "The thing I wanted to do next season was something that's funnier. I really missed that 'Jessica Lange as Constance'...that stuff and I know she missed it, too. [Next season] is a mixture of several cities and it's really about female power. And I got Jessica to do it because I did everything she asked, which was the location. I also told her she'll have complete hair and make-up and the best designer gowns ever. She's going to play a really glamor cat sort of lady. I'm just now meeting with a lot of actors that Jessica wants to work with. She loves doing the show and I think she love the thirteen-episode nature of it so she can do other things."
He added that he knows who Sarah Paulson's character for next season will be already, however, Paulson does not. When asked if season three will feature an "icon" like the Rubber Man or Bloody Face, Murphy said "yes" and that it will be a female "icon" this time.
