American Horror Story has officially locked in an Oscar winner!
Kathy Bates has officially joined the third season of the hit FX show and will be playing the frenemy to Jessica Lange’s new character in the series. The series reboots every season keeping the same family of actors, but changing the time periods, locations and characters.
There’s not a lot of details on what we will see in season 3 but Murphy said it will be more upbeat than the Asylum chapter. Here’s what he had to say in a previous interview,
What season three is about is more historical in nature. 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 little bit more fun.
The rumor is that season 3 will be titled ‘American Horror Story: Salem’ and focus on the infamous Salem Witch Trials.
Sounds like a hit to me!
