Ryan Murphy is keeping as tight a ring of secrecy around the second season of ‘American Horror Story‘, but there’s a couple new characters that you’ll be seeing that fit into the twisted Murphy universe.
We already know that the new season of ‘American Horror Story‘ will be set in the 1960′s (when psychiatry still seemed barbaric by today’s terms) with Chloe Sevigny as a character who was put in an asylum because she likes sex. Can you imagine how full that place would’ve been in the 70′s! With Murphy, sex always plays a component in most of his shows, and this should be interesting for the new season. Jessica Lange would’ve played a perfect Nurse Ratchet type, but since she’ll be opposite, maybe a caring nurse who realizes how crazy the hospital is being run.
Two new characters that are being added are a teenage, male contortionist for a guest starring role, as well as a character who is so far only known as “the most beautiful boy in the world”. That definitely gets your interest up. Adam Levine is also going to be playing it straight as the casting breakdowns are looking for a super-sexy, twenty-something Theresa as his fiancee. I still think Murphy will be having Levine stripping down since…well Levine has no problem doing it and Murphy has no problem in looking at it.
Unlike last season where Evan Peter’s ‘Tate’ shot up a school, this season, he’ll be the hero of the season. Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson will be back for Season 2 while Adam Levin, James Cromwell, and French actress, Lizzie Brocheré, will be playing a femme fatale named Gia.
Naturally Murphy is hinting that he’s got Season 3 already planned out, but our FX sources have told me that they’re not thinking ahead that far this time around. Remember last season they picked it up before it aired. Not so this time. “We’re going to see how the ratings do this time around before jumping the gun,” our source said. “We love Ryan, but last season was a little confusing for viewers so it’s a much tighter reign on the show this time.” American Horror Story will be hitting in the fall, and I’m curious to see how Murphy has this one go. I’m assuming he’s learned from last season’s mistakes of too much too soon and that horrible ending.
