A big of non-news for those who are as obsessed with Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s “American Horror Story” as I am.
FX announced today that the third season, titled “American Horror Story: Coven,” will debut once again this Halloween “per tradition”. There will be no shift in dates, so expect it to split up once again through the holidays.
Series creator Ryan Murphy recently made the announcement that actress Kathy Bates will be going head-to-head with Jessica Lange for this installment.
Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters also return to the series that (obviously) tells the tale of a coven of witches.
What would you guys like to see new or done differently with the next season?
Last night at Paleyfest creator Ryan Murphy announced that “American Horror Story: Season 3″ is now called “American Horror Story: Coven”. I’m sure we can expect plenty of the narrative non-sequiters we’ve come to expect along with lots of weird sexuality and general batshittery. And I’m stoked!!!
The only thing I’m still curious about it the time period, when does the main storyline take place? I’m dying for something present day again for some reason. We also know that the season will be more “female centric”, which I’ve got no problem with. And that Kathy Bates’ character will be more evil that anyone she’s ever playing, including Annie Wilkes, which I’m also OK with.
Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga will all star. It will shoot in New Orleans and air on FX.
Last week we reported that Kathy Bates had been added to the cast of “American Horror Story: Season 3″ as a character that used to be a friend of Jessica Lange’s character, but is now an enemy. Then a few days ago, Murphy spilled “Oh, Kathy’s never [played] someone this bad,” Ryan Murphy revealed to TVLine. “Her [character] is a bad, bad woman! Five times worse than [her] Misery character…When I pitched this to Kathy, her mouth was drop-jawed because what I was pitching actually happened. It’s a true event…” True event, huh?
Then at Paleyfest Dylan McDermott spilled, ““She really is. All the witches of Salem…there’s plenty of them!” That’s certainly in keeping with Murphy’s assertions that the season will be a more female-centric story. But what about his comments that Lange will be playing “glamour cat leading lady“. Did they really have those back in the day at Salem? I suppose it’s possible that he’s referring to how she would appear to others within the context of that time – but AHS just got done with a period season, and I was under the impression that they want to do something more modern day this time out. Of course, the “true event” factor sort of doubles back on that – maybe, and I’m just guessing here, there are two timelines in the show? One period and one modern?
Does that sound like something you’d be interested in? Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Kathy Bates Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga will all star.
So far the casting for “American Horror Story: Season 3″ has mainly consisted of series vets coming back for another round. So it’s sort of refreshing to see some new blood make its way into the show (as much as I like the established cast). Per TVLine, Kathy Bates (Misery, Titanic) will be joining the series as a nemesis to Jessica Lange’s character, “Bates will play the best friend of Lange’s new character, who turns into her enemy.”
That’s certainly in keeping with creator Ryan Murphy’s feisty remarks that this will be a female-centric season with Lange in the center as some kind of ““glamour cat leading lady.” That’s fine by me. I preferred seeing outrageous characters in normal confines in the 1st season and thought that the 2nd season suffered by providing a crazy context for its crazy characters. Let them loose, I say.
Newcomer Bates joins returning cast members Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga. As previously reported, Season 3 will be more female centric and will have a love story in its dark, black and likely stunningly random, heart.
The casting for “American Horror Story: Season 3″ continues chugging along, this time with AHS vet Frances Conroy (“Six Feet Under”) back in tow. I really like how this is sort of a troupe, the setting may change but the performers are more or less consistent.
As he is wont to do, Ryan Murphy proclaimed on Twitter, “ Thrilled to announce the legendary Frances Conroy is on board for next season’s American Horror Story.”

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.
