American Horror Story Season 2 Will Feature NEW House and NEW Cast

Truth rating: 9

By Daniel Gates


Well, this is kind of interesting. Ryan Murphy, the man behind “American Horror Story,” just told reporters that the next season of the show will feature an entirely new haunted house and cast.

The show’s first season, which starred Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott as the Harmons, wrapped up on Wednesday. “Every season of the show will be a different haunting,” said Murphy in a conference call. “What you saw in the finale was the end of the Harmon house, and the second season of the show will be a brand new home or building to haunt.” In fact, explains Murphy, that’s how every new season will be structured going forward.

In addition to a new haunting, each season “will also have a new overriding theme. [Season 1’s theme] was ‘infidelity.’ Next year will have a different theme and a new cast of characters to go with it.” While Britton and McDermott (along with other actors) could “be coming back [and] playing completely new characters,” they’ll no longer be the show’s leads. “Their stories are done,” explains Murphy.

It should be noted that some of Murphy’s past decisions about major cast changes on his other series, “Glee,” have turned out not to be set in stone. Would you be excited to see a whole new world for Season 2 of “American Horror Story”?
