With the finale of “American Horror Story Asylum” rapidly approaching, creator Ryan Murphy recently lifted the veil a bit pertaining to what we can expect from the next season of this ghoulish sliver of grand grue.
According to TV Guide Murphy confirmed that both Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will join star Jessica Lange on the next cycle. “What Season 3 is about is more historical in nature,” Murphy said. “I’m also interested into getting into a horror romance. That’s certainly something that’s going to be in the water for Season 3.”
Murphy also said they’re aiming for something lighter for its next iteration. “You’re going to see a very different tone in Season 3,” Murphy said. “As a person right now, I do feel lighter and wanting to embrace something a little bit more fun. I want to do something next season that’s funnier. I really miss that Jessica Lange as [Season 1’s] Constance, and I know she missed it, too.”
Unlike the first two seasons, the third outing will take place in multiple cities, along with several time periods. “It’s really about female power,” Murphy said. “I got Jessica to do it because I did everything she asked — which was the location — and I also told her she will have complete hair and makeup and the best designer gowns.”
Murphy would not reveal what roles Paulson and Peters would play, but he said that Lange would play “a really glamour cat sort of lady in Season 3.”
