Jessica Lange is coming back for more "American Horror Story," but if you think she's reprising her Golden Globe-winning role of Constance Langdon, then think again. According to showrunner Ryan Murphy, she'll play someone entirely new.
"We have designed the second season of American Horror Story completely around her character," Murphy told EW. "Last year Jessica came in with Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. This will really be the Jessica Lange show so I'm very excited about it. We are designing this amazing new opposite of the Constance character for her."
But Lange isn't the only familiar face from Season 1 to return. Three more actors from the chilling first season have signed on to return, but Murphy won't reveal who they are until the the annual PaleyFest in Beverly Hills.
However, the biggest mystery has yet to be revealed: Where will the haunting take place? According to EW, "American Horror Story" Season 2 will take place on the East Coast and will involve a horror institution.
"Every season of the show will be a different haunting," Murphy told The Insider via a conference call in December. "What you saw in the finale was the end of the Harmon house and the second season of the show will be a brand new home. Or building to haunt. Just like this year, every season of the show will have a beginning, middle and end."
While Murphy may be moving the setting of Season 2, he left a clue in the last three episodes as to where the second season will take place.
