What a night!
When we heard that the cast and creators of American Horror Story were slated to open this year’s Paleyfest, we couldn’t resist the chance to spend the evening with Ryan Murphy and hear him talk about his horrifying creation.
But since he didn’t seem to want to talk about Quinn Fabray getting smashed by that truck on Glee, we had to settle for hearing about AHS.
We kid, we kid! We were thrilled to hear the gang shoot the breeze about the show, especially when they got around to talking about who will be returning to the cast next season.
This week, it was confirmed that not only will Jessica Lange be a lead in season two, but also the delicious Zachary Quinto will be coming back for more Horror. Fans then began to explode all over the Internet, wondering who else will be returning to show. Will the Harmons haunt another day? Is Moira moving back in? Paging the creepy ginger twins???
Well, sadly, though the door is open for all of those people to return, only three other first season actors were confirmed by Ryan and Brad Falchuck as returning next season. And they are…
Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe … and Evan Peters!
And Tumblr is deafened by all the fangirl screams! Ha!
We hope a lot of you caught the livestream of the Paley event, because aside from the big news, it was an entertaining evening, as the cast reminisced about the first season and their many shenanigans. Jessica Lange was in RARE form, taking some jabs at Ryan, sharing some HIGHlarious stories and marveling at the wonder that was the Drag Queen dressed as Constance just a few feet from her.
We also learned that in season two, though we’ll be seeing familiar faces, the actors will be playing “opposite” characters than they previously portrayed. We also may not be dealing with ghosts in this next season, but the creators were very tight-lipped. Ryan would only add that no matter where the series might take them, the writers live by one rule:
“No vampires and no werewolves.”
Ah! So we’ve got some Twilight-haters in the crew, is that it! LOL! WHATEVER!
Are U excited to hear this scoop on season 2? Who else do U hope will come back for a cameo – or more?!
