The spookiest show on television has just nabbed another familiar face.

The Hollywood Reporter dropped the news that Lily Rabe has apparently signed on for the mysterious third season of the FX anthology series AMERICAN HORROR STORY, joining the already announed Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters in an unspecified role.

Series creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter yesterday with a post that read "So thrilled to announce Lily Rabe is onboard for American Horror Story Season Three! So talented, love her!".

Rabe is no stranger to the weird world of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, portraying Nora Montgomery, the ghost of a previous resident of the Murder House, in the series first season. In AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM Rabe returned in a much bigger role as Sister Mary Eunice, a sweet and innocent nun who became possessed by the devil who roamed Briarcliff.

As with the previous seasons, AMERICAN HORROR STORY's third season will completely change the setting and the time frame of the story, with the cast assuming all new roles. All that is currently known about the new season is that it will be set during the present and that it will once again feature a Romeo and Juliet style romance, with Murphy stating "I'm also interested in getting into a horror romance. That's certainly something that's going to be in the water for season three."

AMERICAN HORROR STORY season 3 is set to haunt us this October on FX.

The cast for each season are genuinely great. I'd love to see Dylan McDermott, Frances Conroy & Kate Mara back. Though they need to be careful as if I have one minor quibble with season 2 - as much as I loved it - was the plots became a little bit "kitchen sink" storytelling. Yes I get the theme overall was crazy ness but the possession and the alien abduction were poorly handled and the alien abduction in particular should have been kept for an alien horror themed series (set in the 50's or is

The possession came from nowhere which would have been fine had it not been resolved so abruptly. There was plenty else going on that they could have invested in than having these subplots.

This is amazing news that I was so hoping for!
I wanted Lange, Paulson, and Rabe to be in the third season very badly, and to cap it all off having Taissa Farmiga return? So thrilled.
