American Horror Story is coming back to your regularly scheduled programming.
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will both appear on the seventh season, according to, executive producer Ryan Murphy.
He revealed to reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour that the upcoming season will be set in modern times.
“There are only three people in the world who know what [the new season is about],” executive producer Ryan Murphy teased on Thursday. “And that’s FX CEO John Landgraf, [studio executive] Dana Walden, and Sarah Paulson.” (Excluding himself, obviously.) “I don’t know [if we’ll keep it quiet]. Last year was successful. I don’t know if we’ll do it again. I think maybe we’ll release some of it earlier than we did. But I just started writing it, I haven’t even cast it yet — except for Sarah and Evan. It’s a modern-day story. That’s all I can say.”
FX CEO Landgraf weighed in, confirming that he plans to keep things under wraps. “It actually will be shrouded in super secrecy,” he said. “Ryan has yet another really innovative idea for how to do something fresh and different with the franchise that audiences haven’t seen before, and there’s a marketing promotional hook around that.”
Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett collectively cover the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.
The ladies of American Horror Story chatted with the magazine. Additionally, series creator, Ryan Murphy, reveals his dream cast list for future seasons of AHS, shares a scoop on season 4, and divulges some of what’s coming up on the rest of this season on Coven.
Bates on going to work:
“I love going to work,” she admits. “Every scene has something exciting in it for me to do, and part of the fun, too, is reading every new script. I never know what’s coming.”
Lange on her role:
It’s been wonderful to be able to play humor — to have somebody as sharp-witted [as Fiona].”
Creator Ryan Murphy on how he got the trio to be a part of the show:
“I just say, ‘I love you and I want to write something for you that will be one of the most fun things of your career and you’re going to love doing it. Will you please just sign on the dotted line?’”
Jessica Lange is one of the most talked about actresses on FX’s American Horror Story. Unforttunately, fans will be sad to hear that the veteran actress is planning to exit the show after next season.
“I am coming to the end of acting,” Lange, 64, told the LATimes. “I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of American Horror Story. . . and then that is it for me. Because I think that’s enough. I want to go out with a bang. . . or should I say, a scare?”
Her role as meddling neighbor Constance Langdon on the first season of American Horror Story got her an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie. In addition to that, she nabbed a nomination in the Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie category this year.
“It re-energized me; it re-energized my career,” Lange added. “There’s no shame in recognizing that. It’s exposed me to a whole new generation, which is a little strange. I’m not used to young people thinking I’m cool.”
Catch Lange in American Horror Story: Coven, which airs on Wednesdays on FX. Check your local listings for air times.
GLEE fans better savor every bit of the show, because according to co-creator Ryan Murphy it will end after its sixth season.
Murphy revealed this news at an event honoring the FX Network on October 16. He revealed that the show will not go on beyond a sixth season and due to Cory Monteith’s death, the show will have an alternate ending from what he once envisioned.
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story,” Murphy explained. “I always knew that, I always knew how it would end. I knew what the last show was, he was in it. I knew what the last line, she said it to him.”
He continued, “So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now.”
Oxygen has decided to pull the plug on The Glee Project after two seasons.
The network cites low ratings as the reason for axing the show. Even though the timing is horrible, the death of Glee star Cory Monteith had nothing to do with the network’s decision.
A production company for the series released the following statement: “The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen but we are extremely proud of this series which launched the careers of several talented individuals.”
“The show had so much heart and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling.”
