It would be the least surprising move for Ryan Murphy to invite a couple of "American Horror Story" castmembers back for another season of the show. Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Dylan McDermott, Denis O'Hare, Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe - and more - have all appeared in at least two seasons of the wild horror series. And it seems as though Murphy and his AHS co-creator Brad Falchuck have become enamored of two new additions to the "American Horror Story" family and may bring them back for more over-the-top terror.
EW is reporting that Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett - two of the stand-out members of "AHS: Coven" - are very likely to return for the fourth season of the series. Murphy himself gave the good word:
“I have approached them and they wanna do it... That’s very exciting when you can work with A.) actresses you’ve always idolized and B.) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do. Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn’t get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say ‘Thank you and job well done.’”
Hey, now I want a grab bag of stuffed pancreases!
Of course, it's still too early to say definitively if the two actresses will return; season three is only five episodes in at the moment, and season four was only just announced the other day.
Let's hope they also bring back Alexandra Breckinridge!
