American Horror Story Season 2 to Be Titled...

by at . Comments

A new setting and a new era won't be the only changes ahead on American Horror Story Season 2.

Ryan Murphy announced an addition to his show's title today, confirming the new episodes that kick off in October will be dubbed "American Horror Story: Asylum."

“We picked ‘Asylum’ because it not only describes the setting – an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward – but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted,” Murphy said. “This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors.”

Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes and Adam Levine are among those who will join Lange on Season 2, with the singer Tweeting the mysterious photo above this week in honor of his role on the series.

In the latest casting scoop, Jenna Dewan will come on board as the partner of Levine's character.

American Horror Story Quotes

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!

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!
