For those of you who are looking forward to the next season of Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story, you'll be happy to know that the title of the new chapter has been revealed! The second chapter of the series will be called American Horror Story: Asylum. It's not really surprising, after all, the next season takes place in an asylum.
Here's a press release in which Murphy talks about the series in a little more detail what they are doing with it...
Set in 1964, American Horror Story: Asylum stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell, and Joseph Fiennes. Principal photography on the new minseries began on July 17 and it premieres on FX in October.
"When we launched the show last year, we kept quiet about the closed-ended nature of the show because we didn't want to tip off the audience that the characters were not going to survive," explained co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy. "Now that it has been established that each year is a closed-ended story, the time seemed right to reveal what we're calling the new installment.
"We picked 'Asylum' because it not only describes the setting - an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange's character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward - but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted. This year's theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors."
I can't wait to see how this turns out! I love the twistedness of it all. Murphy also tweeted out the following the set. Not sure what Bloody Face means, but we'll find out soon enough!
