The latest “American Horror Story” teaser trailer puts the witch burnings front and center, and will this really be Jessica Lange’s last season of the huge hit series?
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, “American Horror Story’s” reigning diva waxed poetic that ending her run with the show after the third season might make a nice trilogy, but she may come back for Season 4. But that would definitely be the end of the line for her involvement with the series, despite the Emmy’s its earned her.
“I think that would be the absolute stop date. One more after this, because…it takes up a lot of time. It’s a big commitment every year. There’s a lot of other things that I want to be doing.”
This season the show is all about Salem witches vs New Orleans Voodoo, with Angela Bassett joining the cast as Marie Laveau. Lange plays Fiona, and returning cast member Sarah Paulson — or “Lana Banana” last season as Lange referred to her last season — will play her daughter this go ’round. Let’s hope mother and daughter have less issues than Sister Jude and Lana did last season, but this is “American Horror Story,” so don’t count on a peaceful household.
“This season she plays my daughter, although it’s a rather strange relationship,” said Lange. “It has many twists and turns.”
We’re sure it does.
The new season premieres October 9, and here’s another teaser trailer to hold you over while you wait.
