Who Else is Returning to American Horror Story?

by at . Comments

Jessica Lange and Zachary Quinto are not the only American Horror Story alums who will return for season two of this FX drama.

At last night's PaleyFest12 panel, producer Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk confirmed the following actors/actresses will play some role on their hit series this fall:

  • Evan Peters (Tate).
  • Sarah Paulson (psychic Billie Dean).
  • Lily Rabe (Nora).

Like Lange and Quinto, all three will take on new characters.

"Everybody will be playing the opposite of what they played,” Murphy told fans and reporters, giving the only hint of what roles these stars might take on and adding that others from season one could also stop by: "Anybody could pop up at any time."

And while the series creator acknowledged season two will be set on the East Coast and tell a different story than last year - "a supernatural element" will be part of it, he simply said," teasing the focus as "more historically accurate" than season one - Murphy did say one loose end from the opening season will be tied up at some point:

“We have not lost sight of [Constance's] four child," he said. “We want to answer that.”

So happy for you to have a new place to live. Sorry it wasn't left in tip top condition. Thankfully you're in and etseltd.I'm sorry you didn't care for March. I liked it a lot. I thought Mr. March was a complex character. Oh well, we all react to books so differently, don't we?

As long as Evan Peters is returning it's all good! Man he's hot!

To Helena* do you kiss you mother with that mouth? I don't think this is the proper forum for that kind of offensive language and to Jarrod Mitchell* I totally agree with you. I get bored when shows get too predictable, thus I quit watching. I think they made a wise decision. I can't wait for it to start!

I can't wait to see season 2! It's a shame that Taissa Farmiga and Frances Conroy are not gonna be there though.

I liked each of those characters and the actors who played them, but if this show constantly recycles so many cast members, I think it'll get boring to keep seeing the same faces each season. Especially if the show were to last 4 years or so.
