Well, American Horror Story: Asylum happened. The exhausting Season 2 of AHS made Season 1 look like an ABC Family Channel show, so there's no doubt curiosity about what Season 3 has in store. While series co-creator Ryan Murphy is tight-lipped on plot details (although he has said it will be a little lighter in tone), word has come that several of the cast members from the first two seasons will be returning:
- Jessica Lange, who won a Golden Globe for her Season 1 role as the meddling neighbor Constance and played the strict asylum-running nun Sister Jude in Season 2
- Lily Rabe, who played baby-craving ghost Nora in Season 1 and the possessed nun Sister Mary Eunice in Season 2
- Sarah Paulson, who played medium Bille in Season 1 and investigative reporter Lana in Season 2
- Evan Peters, who played deranged teen Tate in Season 1 and accused serial killer Kit in Season 2
- Taissa Farmiga, who played star-crossed teen lover Violet in Season 1 (and didn't appear in Season 2)
- Frances Conroy, who played mysterious housekeeper Moira in Season one and the Angel of Death in Season 2
Of course, casting isn't yet complete, so more members of the previous cast could (and likely will) sign up for more American Horror insanity.
