[TV] Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett Could Return To “American Horror Story: Coven”…

AHS

EW writes that this season of “American Horror Story” has seen the additions of Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett to the cast, playing immortal archenemies Madame LaLaurie and Marie Laveaux, respectively. Now it looks like “Coven” might not be the last time we see the pair on the FX franchise: Series co-creator Ryan Murphy tells EW that he wants both stars to return for season 4, which was just announced.

I have approached them and they wanna do it,” says Murphy. He adds, “That’s very exciting when you can work with A.) actresses you’ve always idolized and B.) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do. Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn’t get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say ‘Thank you and job well done.’

Both actresses are blowing my mind with their performances, and I’d love to see them alongside Jessica Lange once again. You?

    This makes me extremely excited because both actresses are slaying this season, playing fast talking vengeful women! My only concern is; is there room for this much talent? I’d love to see other former actors return as well such as Kate Mara, Connie Britton (even if only for a small part), Zachary Quinto, Chloe Sevigny, Dillon McDermott, and James Cromwell.

    is ‘nashville’ doing well in the ratings for connie britton? this sounds bad, but i wish it would get cancelled so she could return to ahs with a full character story. would love to see her play a baddie. as for bates possibly returning next season, f to the c k yeh. she is brilliant this season.

    i knew Bates was interested in returning for as many seasons as Ryan Murphy would allow (she said as much in a couple of different interviews) but i’m SO happy that both Bates & Angela are coming back for season 4 and hopefully more seasons!

    since Lange is leaving after season 4, i think the additions of both Bates/Bassett will help soften the blow.
