One of the biggest highlights of American Horror Story: Asylum was Lily Rabe possessed character, and it is very welcome news to find out that the actress is now confirmed to return in the third season.

Murphy confirmed the news today of Rabe’s now third appearance on the creepy TV series: she appeared in a small role in the first season as a ghost, but had a huge role in the second season. It is not yet known how she will be involved in the third season, but seeing her return is very welcome news indeed.

Rabe joins the already returning  Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga.

Murphy stated at the 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.
