While it’s been reported about 3,200 times that Jessica Lange will return in FX’s second season of “American Horror Story,” Deadline has the scoop on the first of a handful of returning cast members.
Zachary Quinto, who did a scene-stealing four-episode arc on the first season of the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk drama as the Harmon house’s doomed former co-owner Chad Warwick, will be back as a series regular in Season 2, joining Jessica Lange. Like Lange, he will play a brand new character next season, which is set at an East Coast institution. What’s more, the site reports that Quinto will play one of two male leads and the nemesis to Lange’s character, which will be at the center of the Season 2 storyline.
In addition to Lange and Quinto, three other actors from Season 1 of “AHS” will return next season. Murphy is expected to announce their names at the show’s panel tonight, which will open this year’s PaleyFest.
