American Horror Story 3 set to be a romance? Paulson & Peters return

Well here's a sure fire way to lose viewers...

After that full-fledged "Glee" number seen on a recent episode of "American Horror Story: Asylum," creator Ryan Murphy dished some deets on the show's 3rd season that may have fans just as alienated. According to Deadline, season 3 of "AHS" will be a "romance set in modern times," whatever the hell that means. More encouraging to me personally is the confirmation that Sarah Paulson (above) and Evan Peters are set to rejoin Jessica Lange (below) in the 3rd entry. Frankly, if it weren't for Lange (2-time Oscar winner btw), I wouldn't watch a single episode. And this Paulson chick is a true talent. Peters? Meh.

Perhaps the directorial talent of the series knows when to get out while the getting's good. Earlier today we heard "AHS" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will focus his attention on remaking the 70s slasher flick THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN. Almost sad to say, but I'd much rather see a remake of that film than a lame ass "romance set in modern times"...on TV.

What says you though? Does "AHS" have your attention no matter what angle or avenue taken? Or has the show already lost you?

How dare you forget how fine Lange used to be!

Extra Tidbit: Point blank, you still watching "AHS"?

Calm down and get your facts straight; Murphy never described the upcoming season as a "love story", he merely stated that a romantic plot would be thrown into the mix (i.e., Tate and Violet in season one). The second season has surpassed the first in terms of writing, acting, tone, and, most importantly, weirdness. This is a very dark and disturbing season, so Murphy says the 3rd may not feel as bleak, that's all. And that it may have a more gothic feel to it.
Lange wouldn't return if she

Lange wouldn't return if she were wary of the quality, as she's never been hurting for work, and will be just as magnificent as she's been from day one. So thankful Paulson's returning as well, as she's nearly every bit as engrossing as Lange this season. Here's hoping that Lily Rabe returns as well.

Witches, New Orleans, and modern love story. Season 3 will be just as good as 1 and 2 - there's no doubt! Wish they would make it about a run down carnival/freakshow though. I think there is a lot that can be done with that.

I trust them 100% with AHS

I thought with the departure of Dyland McDermont and Family the show would tank.... unfortunately I haven't seen a bad episode yet of AHS (I havent seen the GLEE episode either - is that the season 2 finale?)
this season was a *LITTLE* too demented for me.... and so after episode 5 I checked out... but I did like what I saw in the Asylum... I'm on board for more... just GHOSTS... not crazy Nazi doctors and whacked FBI guys and SLUTTY demon Nuns and sadistic Nun running the Asylum... my god

Seemed so... there really wasnt ONE "normal" character in the batch... which is why I finally had to check out of the Asylum.

Doesn't bother me in the least, it's not like Murphy is going to transform the show into a fully-fledged rom-com with a musical number every 10 minutes. The show has built it's identity on turning preconceived notions on its head and being utterly bizarre. While Season 2 hasn't been as "scary" as the first season, I found it to be a helluva lot darker and exploring more controversial matter, so I don't think the third season is going to shift from devil-possession, rape, murder, and abortion

I feel that the creators and writers understand what their audience is and what their audience appreciates and won't stray too far from what made AHS "event television" for many.

I'm enjoying the hell out of series 2,it's been a crazy ride which I think has been lost on most since it is set in a nut house(I personally thought the name game scene was great)

ET: No. Season two's politics pissed me off. However, the first season was must-see TV, and a third season might be as well.
American Horror Story needs to keep itself fresh season-after-season. Therefore, the show has to do something different--such as mixing horror and romance. That Frankenstein's monster could work. Romance has its dark and twisted elements. It has its passions which sometimes are violent passions. Many great horror stories are also romances. Dracula is a prominent example.

Furthermore, AHS is great at being weird and unexpected; often, it places discordant elements together (e.g. serial killers and alien abduction). Let's all see what the show creators have to offer.
