So far, two of last season's characters are announced for this upcoming season: Jessica Lange
and Zachary Quinto
Zachary Quinto -- Joins 'American Horror Story' Season 2 As Male Co-Lead
happy with these choices. I love them both so much (especially Quinto, ohmygod).
The second season is going to take place in a mental institution on the Easy coast, so this sounds like it'll be a lot crazier than the L.A. horror-house. I'm also excited that Zachary Quinto's character is going to be up as the male co-lead, playing the nemesis of Jessica Lange's character. A couple others from last season are going to be announced at this evening's panel, so there is definitely still more to come!
If you haven't seen the first season, I recommend picking it up. It's a nice mix of horror and just place crazy all wrapped in a box of insane.
