'American Horror Story' renewed for Season 2

My apologies to Mac-Daddy if this has already been addressed in American Horror Story (Season 1) But I didn't want to have to read every page to see if it was.

FX president and general manager John Landgraf met the Television Critics Association to present the cable network's spring season. Taking questions, he addressed the status of "American Horror Story"'s second season and new cast.

"Ryan Murphy's already looking for that cast," Landgraf said. "He's already in active conversations with new people and also two or possibly three of the existing cast members, some series regulars or guest cast may be continuing next year although they would be playing entirely new roles."

Landgraf reiterated that he greenlit the plan to kill off the season one cast. They just didn't want the audience to know that was going to happen. "We just didn't want to tell the audience that because the experience of not knowing where it would end would be diminished, if they knew we were going to burn this cast and location to the ground."

This is something Ryan Murphy does. Maybe not on "Glee," but his previous FX show was reinvented a few times too. If you liked "nip/tuck" in L.A. (and I did. It really saved the series from the Carver and organ thieves) then "American Horror Story" is following a similar artistic path.

"This was something I was really excited about this idea from the get go," Landgraf said. "One of the things I think Ryan's particularly strong at is creating a really distinctive world in all its aspects. That includes the tone and mood of the place, the costume design and music, cinematography. If you looked at the way those characters were dressed, right down to Jessica Lange's wardrobe and the way her hair was style, Ryan Murphy was involved in every aspect of that. Even with nip/tuck he wanted to recreate it at a certain point so he moved it from Miami to LA. This gives him the opportunity to do that every year."

To some extent Landgraf lets Murphy do what he wants. If audiences have a hard time with the show, they're just not going to get Murphy. But there's no reigning him in.

"They have more leeway and creative freedom than most so I don't know every detail of everything they're up to, I certainly knew a lot," Landgraf said. "I knew the entire family was going to die by the end of the season. One of my biggest concerns about the piece is that the nature of the genre is that you're always ahead of the protagonist. You know things the protagonist doesn't know so we knew that certain critics and audiences would get frustrated with the leads. It's just a classic rule of storytelling the leads should know more than the audience, or at least not less. After the lead characters were dead and knew everything, they were at least by the end of the piece able to recapture their status as leads. The final episode where Vivien and Ben Harmon spook the new couple out of the house was the first time in 7 or 8 episodes where they were ahead of the audience. It was an experiment. I didn't know if that would alienate the audience. It didn't in terms of viewership. That's Ryan. He's going to push the form and go to places you wouldn't expect."

The FX thriller from "Glee" co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk capped off its first season run with a record 3.22 million viewers -- a strong finish for the top-rated first season series in the network's history, said THR back in December.

The finale, which drew mixed reviews from critics, delivered 2.2 million viewers in the coveted 18 to 49 demographic, and ranked as cable's No. 1 program in all of key demos Wednesday. Once DVR viewership is factored in for what Nielsen named the year's most time-shifted program, the final tally will likely exceed 5 million total viewers.

I thought that Ryan and company had already nailed down the Season 2 cast. But looking at it as a whole, the smart thing was to wait till the end of Season 1 to run it's course because if you hire new people before the Season Finale, the obvious questions that surface would be "what about the original cast?" So yeah, makes sense now why it seems they are "late" getting the cast together. But does this mean that Season 2 would be pushed back further as far as air date is concerned? I don't know how much time they need for pre-production work on the show when it comes to casting, scouting locations, writing, etc....I hope they are ahead of the curve because it's gonna suck if I have to wait even longer for them to return.

Next 'American Horror Story' To Be Told From A "Horror Institution"

Quote
Those of you who are dying for a few clues as to what to expect from the second season of "American Horror Story," show creator Ryan Murphy opened up a bit on Bravoís "Watch What Happens Live" Monday night.

As discovered by TV Line, during a round of WWHL's "Plead the Fifth," Murphy confirmed that Golden Globe winner Jessica Lange will appear in some capacity during the FX horror show's sophomore season. As for other returning actors, the exec producer told Cohen, "I'm in negotiations with four of the people who were on last year's show, and none of them were the Harmons" ó which means Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott or Taissa Farmiga are all long gone.

Murphy also teased that the upcoming season will take place on the East Coast in a "horror institution." Now that's a way to kick it up a notch!

AHS can't return fast enough for me. Funny how I almost threw in the towel on this series after the first couple of episodes of Season 1.

While it's been reported about 3,200 times that Jessica Lange will return in FX's second season of "American Horror Story," Deadline has the scoop on the first of a handful of returning cast members.

Zachary Quinto, who did a scene-stealing four-episode arc on the first season of the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk drama as the Harmon house's doomed former co-owner Chad Warwick, will be back as a series regular in Season 2, joining Jessica Lange. Like Lange, he will play a brand new character next season, which is set at an East Coast institution. What's more, the site reports that Quinto will play one of two male leads and the nemesis to Lange's character, which will be at the center of the Season 2 storyline.

In addition to Lange and Quinto, three other actors from Season 1 of "AHS" will return next season. Murphy is expected to announce their names at the show's panel tonight, which will open this yearís PaleyFest

"American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy announced tonight at PaleyFest that Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe will join Zachary Quinto and Jessica Lange to play completely new characters in the sophomore season of the FX horror anthology series.

Says THR, Season 2 will shift from the creepy Los Angeles haunted mansion to an East Coast "horror institution," with SAG and Golden Globe award winner Jessica Lange (who co-starred as the all-knowing nosy next door neighbor Constance) and Zachary Quinto (who recurred as a ghost trapped in the house) previously confirmed to return.

Peters co-starred as a mass-murderer-turned-ghost stuck in the house Tate Langdon, while Paulson had a more limited run as medium Billie Dean -- who in the penultimate "Birth" episode explained to Violet (Farmiga) that the house had a paramagnetic grip -- like a battery, with negative energy that feeds on trauma and draws things to it. Rabe played Nora Montgomery, one of the original owners of the house at the center of the series.

Season 2 of FX's "American Horror Story," which will likely return in October, will revolve around Lange's new character, with Quito cast as a series regular

I'm still trying to wrap my head around them playing different characters. My guess is that they will be descendant's of family members that were established in Season 1...or an alternate reality. I dunno. Just hurry the  f u c k  up and get here already!!!

Maroon 5 frontman to star in American Horror Story

Quote
Adam Levine is set to make an appearance in the hit US television series 'American Horror Story'.

The Maroon 5 frontman is reportedly in final negotiations to make his debut acting appearance in the popular television show.

'American Horror Story' revolves around a family who move into a haunted house, and Levine is set to play one half of a couple called 'The Lovers'.

According to reports at Entertainment Weekly, chief executives at the FX Channel are so keen to sign The Voice US judge and Maroon 5 frontman, that they are willing to shoot the series around the band's summer touring plans.

Adam Levine is currently working on the third American series of The Voice, as well as releasing his own fragrance, and working on a new record with Maroon 5. He tweeted yesterday: "We are working on a new song. Singing it in the studio gave me goosebumps. Never been more excited."

Bring on Cee-Lo!!!

The one good thing that can come out of this is all the free press it will generate on the other show and Network to people that may not even be watching AHS.

'American Horror Story' Finds Its Season Two Lead


American Horror Story has cast the lead for the upcoming season two. The show, which is shrouded in more secrecy than True Blood and Cabin in the Woods combined, announced today that they had cast French ingenue Lizzie Brochere in a leading role for season two. More after the break.

This will be Brochere's first American role, after success back home in some more "adult" roles. Brochere will play a character named Gia who, according to the casting breakdown, is a "fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot; a nemesis for Jessica Lange; and likened to Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted." However, sources with the production say that the role has been "changed considerably" based upon the casting choice.

Brochere will join first season actors Jessica Lange, Tate Evans, Sarah Paulson, Zach Quinto, and Lily Rabe - all of whom are coming back as new characters - in the new season, which will be set on the East Coast. Adam Levine (The Voice, lead singer of Maroon 5) has also been cast as one half of a couple known as "The Lovers."
