FX has released a handful of wicked cool cast photos for American Horror Story: Asylum, which premieres next week. We’ve added below, alongside the opening 5 minutes shared yesterday.

Being committed October 17, 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.

In Episode 1 – “Welcome to Briarcliff” (Airs October 17, 10:00 pm e/p) – “Welcome to Briarcliff Manor, a notorious insane asylum home to the deranged serial killer, Bloody Face. Lurking in the shadows of this “sanctuary of healing” are terrifying evils that blur the boundaries between reality and insanity.” Written by Tim Minear; directed by Bradley Buecker.

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.

    I cannot WAIT for next week! I’m thinking of rewatching all of last season this weekend in anticipation. I don’t think I’ve ever been this pumped for the sophomore season of a show.

    Why oh why was Adam Levine cast in this amazing show. I am not that stoked. I love this show but really, can they cast someone other than a dude with a vagina and a butt voice.
