Two more familiar faces have joined the third season of FX’s American Horror Story. One of them is an actress we saw fairly frequently during Season 2’s Asylum, while the other played a central character in Season 1.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed on Twitter that Frances Conroy is “on board” for the new season. She played the Angel of Death in Asylum and the Murder House maid Moira O’Hara in Season 1. Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Season 1’s Taissa Farmiga, who played the ill-fated Violet Harmon, will be back as well. There’s no clue as to who they will portray in the new chapter of the hit horror anthology.
They’re joining an exciting array of other returning talents: Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe, who all played major roles in Asylum. Murphy had previously said he is looking to bring more Season 1 actors back, so fingers crossed for Denis O’Hare and Connie Britton.
The new season of American Horror Story will premiere in the fall. Murphy has previously said that he looks to explore the romance element again this season, and that it will be set in the modern day. It has a great female icon, likely played by Lange, and will be set in multiple cities.
