“American Horror Story” show creator Ryan Murphy has been getting a bit more giddy in public about the secrets he has in store for the upcoming season of the hit show. Even though he’s not really giving anything away, he’s definitely doing a good job of selling the concept. I have to say, I’m kind of intrigued by the narrative freedom that might be afforded by transporting the main cast into brand new characters in a brand new setting.
We already knew that Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Adam Levine, Lizzie Brochere, Chloe Sevigny and James Cromwell have all been locked in, with the returning cast playing new roles. And Murphy had also disclosed that the season would be “set in an institution for the criminally insane that Jessica Lange’s character runs.”
Murphy now tells TV Line, “I don’t want to say what Zach and Lily are doing, or what anybody else is doing, until we get closer to [fall]. But I’ll continue to say that everybody is playing the opposite of what they played last year, which I think is why they’re all so into it. Like, I have talked to Zach and Jessica and they were very excited… and that’s a rare thing.” But in keeping with the “opposite” theme, does that mean Peters, who in Season 1 played the rather evil Tate, will be the new chapter’s hero? “Knowing me it will be the anti-hero,” Murphy teases. “It won’t be what you expect.”
I’m interested to see where Murphy takes the third season, which he already has planned out as well. “American Horror Story” returns to FX this fall.
