Whether or not 'American Horror Story' star Dylan McDermott's words about season 3 focusing on witches prove true, we're expecting the third year to have more in common with the first than its batsh-t crazy "Dark Cousin" 'American Horror Story: Asylum.' To that end, franchise player Frances Conroy has revealed that she'll have a larger role in the third cycle than she did the second time around, but what does she have to say of the rumored setting? Get the latest on 'American Horror Story' season 3 inside!
'American Horror Story' may not have a set cast or a uniform focus from season to season, but so far Ryan Murphy has definitely kept consistent about his favorite actors to work with. Just hours after season 1 star Taissa Farmiga was officially confirmed to join returning 'American Horror Story' and 'Asylum' stars Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson, series creator Murphy has announced seasons 1 and 2 star Frances Conroy to return as well. See how 'American Horror Story' season 3 continues taking shape inside!
While 'American Horror Story: Asylum' captured a great deal of attention casting former season 1 star Dylan McDermott in a mysterious new role, fellow murder house star Frances Conroy had earlier been announced for something far more mysterious. McDermott has (technically) already made an appearance, but this Wednesday's "Dark Cousin" will see the introduction of Conroy's "Ultimate Angel." Is she really who she claims to be, or is Ryan Murphy pulling a fast one on us?
