The cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012 lists are adding new members, and this time one that we were certain was going to get picked up as it is a bonfide cabler hit: FX renews American Horror Story for season three. Go figure, a show from Ryan Murphy that succeeds… who could´ve seen it coming, right? Duh.
And now, it renews American Horror Story for season three, and the theme, era, and location are yet to be announced for the next cycle or incarnation.
Set in 1964, American Horror Story: Asylum takes us into a Church-run haven for the criminally insane, ruled with an iron fist by Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), a nun with a troubled past. Inside this locked down facility, danger lurks around every corner. From Nazis and serial killers, to mutants and aliens, no one is safe inside these walls. Starring Jessica Lange as “Sister Jude”, Sarah Paulson as “Lana Winters”, James Cromwell as “Dr. Arthur Arden,” Evan Peters as “Kit Walker,” Lily Rabe as “Sister Mary Eunice,” Lizzie Brocheré as “Grace,” Zachary Quinto as “Dr. Oliver Thredson,” and Joseph Fiennes as “Monsignor Timothy Howard.” Guest stars for the miniseries include Frances Conroy, Chloe Sevigny, Adam Levine and Mark Consuelos.
