Ryan Murphy Teases AMERICAN HORROR STORY Season 3 Details

Just when you were getting used to American Horror Story, they go and change it up on you. Executive producer Ryan Murphy announced some spoilery details for season 3.

Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, and Sarah Paulson are returning, but each will play new roles in the series, which starts filming this summer for an air date in 2013.

Paulson and Peters' roles are not known at this time, but Lange will play a new "glamour-cat" leading character in the next season. Murphy promises that season three will have a terrifying villain, just like Asylum's Bloody Face was for this season, but this time it wil be a woman. He also teased that the new season will be "funnier" in tone and "more historical in nature." The show will be set during modern times, but will jump between different time periods and other cities.

Murphy had this to say in a statement:

We want to have some new people come in and some [Season 1] people come back. 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. You're going to see a very different tone in season three, but that's the joy of the show. I think as a person right now I do feel lighter and wanting to embrace something a bit more fun.

American Horror Story: Asylum ends its second season on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
