Zachary Quinto Will NOT Be Returning For American Horror Story's Third Season!

Well, folks! We knew we couldn't get them all back!

One of our favorite aspects of American Horror Story is creator Ryan Murphy's penchant for recycling some of the actors from each season of the anthology series, which has resulted in Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Frances Conroy being able to portray entirely new roles every year while allowing new castmembers to join in on the frightfest as needed!

However, while we've been delighted with the news that season one alum Taissa Farmiga, who skipped Asylum, will be back for the apparently-much-lighter, modern story being told in season three, we're pretty bummed to learn that two-timer Zachary Quinto is hanging up his Bloody Face mask this time around!

He revealed:

"I haven't had any conversations about coming back, so at this point I don't think I will be part of the third season as no one has mentioned it to me and I know that they have been making other announcements for the cast. Which is fine, when I signed on for the second season, Ryan and I talked about it being a one year commitment and I think just where I am in my work and what I want to accomplish I think it is good to have a little flexibility and a little bit of freedom.

So, at this point I don't really have any plans to go back, but from what I've heard and what I know is maybe going to happen a little bit, I am really excited to see the characters that Lily, Sarah, Jessica and Evan all play. I know Frances Conroy is coming back, which I think is amazing and I think it is going to be a different world all together and knowing Ryan as I do I think that it's only going to be more exciting and more surprising than anything we have seen so far. I look forward to watching it."

Aww! What a bummer!

It's always so much fun to watch him chew through the twisted, perverse scenery of the show!

But hey! Dylan McDermott made a surprise comeback halfway through this past season, so maybe there's still hope yet!

And even if he doesn't, there's always season four…that is, if the show gets renewed again!

But who's really doubting THAT at this point?! It's a SMASH!

Either way, we're sure we're not alone when we say that we're sad to see him go!

What do U think?? Are U bummed that Zachary is leaving American Horror Story?!

    You really ought to do a survey on whether people like your stupid video clips that keep repeating. I would bet you'd find most people hate them. They are annoying and detrimental to health trying to watch them. Good video flashes and lawsuits. You'll get what I mean.

    Re: beach – I don't like the gifs because he is just stealing them from Tumblr and taking the credit as his own.

    Re: beach – Thanks I agree, those moving pictures or gifs or whatever they are called are very annoying and start to give me a headache. I will sometimes skip stories (unless it is VERY interesting) that have those clips.

    I want him back!! He was one of the big reasons I started loving the first season and got me really excited for season 3. Maybe he will come back for some future season. I hope!

    I honestly will be bummed to not see him again. Zachary Quinto has done some fine work on both season one and two of AHS, so I'd love to see him in season three.

    However, I know he will still find work, and AHS will still be amazing with or without him.

    No I am bummed out by the comment that next season will be "apparently-much-lighter". So is that YOUR prediction or something we don't know? I like my AHS dark and haunting. No Twilight BS.



  10. 10

    Yes and no. Zach is so talented, that I think he will be seen in stage plays and movies for a long time to come, and maybe what the show provided for him exposure for producers and directors to see him in two very different roles and in that it accomplished it's purpose.

    No way!!! I can't believe Zachary won't be coming back. He gave AHS life and energy. Otherwise, it's just other tv. This news sucks.

    I feel so disappointed right now.
    Quinto was one of my favorite actors in the show.
    But hey, at least I we still get Evan Peters… Right?
