What's Next For 'AHS?'
Last night, American Horror Story wrapped up its shocking first season with [spoiler alert!] the death of the entire Harmon family.
Yes, Ben joined his wife and daughter in the afterlife after the house's ghosts sent him flying over the banister with a noose around his neck.
But where does the FX series go from here? Creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk took part in a conference call this morning and revealed some very interesting details about season two! Get the best soundbites below:
"Every season of the show will be a different haunting. What you saw in the finale was the end of the Harmon house and the second season of the show will be a brand new home. Or building to haunt. Just like this year, every season of the show will have a beginning, middle and end." -Ryan Murphy
"Some of [the actors] will be coming back. We're in negotiations with several of them, but they will be playing completely different characters, creatures, monsters and etcetera. I would have all of [the actors] back in a heartbeat, some of the actors we're talking to will be playing something completely different than they played this season -- and something completely different than they've ever played. " - Ryan Murhpy
"It was always our plan all along to [kill] Dylan and Connie and Taissa’s characters. The clues of all of the deaths were always there from the beginning. One of the first things Vivien hears in the pilot is "You're gonna die in there." There's several references to hanging and nooses with Dylan's character. It'll be fun for fans to go back and look at all of those things." - Ryan Murphy
"The second season is very different from the California house approach. I loved the true crime aspect, so every season we will have characters who come from true American horror crimes. I'm not interested in doing another "house" story – we're not going to move to Maine and do another haunted cottage. What's going to be interesting is there are all different kinds of horror stores to tell, be it serial killing stories or true crime stories or prison stories. The only thing I wouldn’t do is a season about vampires." - Ryan Murphy
"There is a clue in the last three episodes where we say what the second season will be." - Ryan Murphy
The new season of American Horror Story starts filming this summer, with plans to premiere in late September/early October on FX.
