Fans of "American Horror Story" have always enjoyed the scenery-chewing antics of star Jessica Lange over the past two seasons, but this current season has given us two other powerhouses that have resonated with fans in Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett. Now fans will be delighted to learn that Bates and Bassett have been approached to return for the shows fourth season!
EW writes that the actresses, who are currently playing immortal archenemies Madame LaLaurie and Marie Laveaux, respectively, may be back for more fun next season as series co-creator Ryan Murphy tells EW that he wants both stars to return for season 4, which was just announced. Says Murphy....
“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.’”
Now, nothing is official yet, but I hope to be able to share the news that these incredible actresses have come onboard for another go-around with the "American Horror Story" crew. We'll keep you posted!
Here's the synopsis for this weeks installment, titled "The Axeman Cometh", which will air Wednesday night.
