by at . Comments

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has revealed more tidbits regarding season two of his eccentric FX thriller.

We already know that it will feature Jessica Lange and James Crowell in charge of an East Coast mental institution and bring back a number of American Horror Season 1 regular in different roles.

Now, in an interview with Vulture, Murphy has also announced...

The season two theme: The second season is about sanity. What makes someone sane or insane? Sometimes the people you think are insane are actually the most sane of all. It’s fun to write about people who society throws away.

The season two setting: The 1960s.

The season two characters: Chloë Sevigny plays a character who was put in an asylum because she was a woman who likes sex, so her husband sends her away. At the time, you were able to put people away for that. Another character is institutionalized for being a lesbian.

Aside from American Horror Story and Glee, Murphy will also be responsible for a new NBC sitcom this fall: The New Normal. It will air Tuesday nights at 9:30.

Omg I love this show! Season 1 was amazing! The first couple of episodes really scared me and I almost didn't want to watch it but I forced myself to and I'm glad I did. When is season 2 starting?

I am almost 70 years old, have been in combat several times in the military, and thought I'd have trouble getting scared or shocked again by shows...but the scene where the daughter discovers "her body" and you see it just kept me up most of the night with my lights on, while trying to deny it. I had to watch it again and remind myself that there were people there filming a TV show just to make myself come down a bit. What a SHOW! I really couldn't believe how scary the first three episodes were; almost considered not watching it anymore but that sounded too chicken.

American Horror Story Quotes

Nein. Nein. No matinees. No. People don't come to see freaks in the heat of day, they come in the evening when the darkness moves in and speaks of mystery and the unknown. When logic loosens it's vice grip and the imagination comes out to play. Night allows the stars to shine and we come alive. No. Daytime is for kiddie shows, clouds and cupie dolls. If that's what you're used to, but you're in a real freak show now. MY freak show!

Else

Gloria: Where are you going?
Dandy: I don't know. Maybe St. Petersburg where they have real caramel corn, not that cardboard
they sell at the freak show!
