American Horror Story Season 2 will feature new characters, new story

American Horror Story Season 2 will feature new characters, new story

The first season of FX’s terrific spookfest “American Horror Story” ended without any questions unanswered and quite frankly, ostensibly nowhere for the characters to go. It all felt very conclusive and finished.

And that was always the plan, creator and EP Ryan Murphy said this morning in a conference call with reporters.

The new storyline and the cast for season two will be announced in February, he said.

If Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Jessica Lange do return they’ll be “playing completely different characters, creatures, and monsters,” Murphy was quoted as saying by EW. ”It’s a really fun idea to do an anthology show. That’s the way it was designed from the beginning. Every season, there will be a new haunting and we’ll have a new overriding theme.”

Murphy suggests that each season may feature a new cast; such a short commitment is attractive to big-names.

“When we met with Connie, Dylan, and Jessica, they were interested because the story had a beginning, middle and an end. Connie just came off of Friday Night Lights and was not interesting in going back into the grind of a 5-year commitment. When I told her she only had to do a 1-year run, she was excited by that.”

Added Murphy, “I would have all of them back in a heartbeat to play someone completely different.”

How did you guys like the finale? Would you prefer the show remained in the ‘house’?
