Frances Conroy will be returning to Ryan Murphy-land for American Horror Story: Asylum. Murphy tweeted, “Thrilled to announce Emmy nominee Frances Conroy is returning to AHS. Devils and angels this year…Frannie plays the ultimate angel.“”

The new season premieres Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 10/9c. on FX. The new season is set at an East Coast asylum for the criminally insane in 1964, and revolves around Jessica Lange’s new character — a nun — and her boss at the institution, played by James Cromwell.

Clea Duvall, Chris Zylka, Joseph Fiennes, Chloe Sevigny, The Voice’s Adam Levine, Mark Consuelos and newcomer Lizzie Brochere round out the cast. Other returning cast members set to play new roles include Sarah Paulson, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe.

The first installment of “American Horror Story” earned 17 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, tying for the most of any program this year and setting a record for the most Emmy nominations for a miniseries in basic cable history. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto and Tim Minear are Executive Producers of “American Horror Story: Asylum.” It is produced by 20th Fox Television.

    I love her! Glad she is back. Now we just need Jamie Brewer to come back. Adelaide was my favorite.

    I’m I the only one excited that Clea Duvall is in this season? I used to love her and she just kind of vanished.

    Also, if you’re a Halloween fan – check out a petition I started to help bring Michael Myers back properly:

    I love Frances Conroy too. I was actually basing my decision to watch Season 2 of this show on whether she would be on it or not. Now I guess I better set my TiVo.
    Also glad to see her paired with James Cromwell again. They worked beautifully together on Six Feet Under.
    And yeah, I’m excited to see Clea Duvall in this too. Loved her in Carnivale, long may those who cancelled that show at HBO suffer painful, seeping disorders of the mouth and genitals.
