A quick bit of casting news has landed today regarding Ryan Murphy’s third season of American Horror Story.Frances Conroy, who has appeared in both season’s as two of the best characters, is back for Season 3. Murphy took to Twitter to confirm the news:

 Thrilled to announce the legendary Frances Conroy is on board for next season’s American Horror Story.” He said.

The rumour of Taissa Farmiga returning, after not appearing in American Horror Story: Asylum, have also now been confirmed!

Conroy and Farmiga join the already returning  Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

Murphy stated at a recent press screening during a Q&A that we wanted actors from Season 1 to return for Season 3, many of which did not appear in Asylum. The first name to be announced is Farmiga, Murphy explained:

 “I missed her this season. There wasn’t really a role for her. I feel very protective of her and I didn’t want her to go back into the loony bin—it was too dark. So I thought well ‘I want Taissa to be one of the leads next year.’ I called her up and pitched her the character for the season and she loved it and she said, ‘Yes let’s do it.’ So we’re in negotiations for her to headline season 3?

Ryan said last week of Season 3:

“You’re going to see a very different tone in season three, but that’s the joy of the show,” he added. “I think as a person right now I do feel lighter and wanting to embrace something a little bit more fun.”

“What season three is about is more historical in nature… I’m also interested in getting into a horror romance. That’s certainly something that’s going to be in the water for season three.”

Season 3 will be contained yet again in thirteen episodes, and again will jump through time periods.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
